my little corner of the world


arroyo grande is where i call home
the weather is usually perfect
75 degrees perfect
we like to call it paradise here
i never get used to living here....not EVER
you can find me some days at our local coffee shop
ANDREINI'S
it's in a very cool historic building in the village downtown
usually filled with locals
i like to get away there to read and sip down some good ol' 
caffeine
also in the village is my nephews favorite ice cream shop
DOC BURNSTEINS
also in a very cool historic building
there's a choo choo train that rides along a track high above to the top of the ceiling all around the store
it's a good place to go on a hot day or when you just need something sweet
we also have a very yummy bakery in the village
ECLAIR BAKERY
it's filled with home made treats and the best birthday cakes for special occasions
you'll also find a swinging bridge in th evillage that's super fun to cross with little ones

the village, andrein's, doc burnsteins

one of my favorite beach spots here is 
AVILA BEACH
it's main attraction is 
THE AVILA VALLEY BARN
the beach is in the cute little town of avila and the barn is on the way to the beach filled with animals, tasty treats, fruits and veggies, seasonal pumpkin patches, christmas tress, tractor rides etc

the next town over is san luis obispo
it's a college town with amazing victorian houses on the way to it's downtown shops and eateries
one of my favorite shops is 
PAPER SKY
the owner is the fabulous and kind 
JESSICA
she's a gem of a person and her shop is striaght out of a fairy-tale
the 1st time i went in i thought of peter pan

i really like visiting coffee shops
especially with my friends
my favorite coffee shop is 
SALLY LOO"S
located in san luis obispo
if anthropologie had a coffee shop i think it would like like sally loo's
the owners are adorable
BRANDON & JEN
they redid the shop all on their own and it's so pretty
i love to go there for some yummy waffles and to hear great music
not to mention they have really good coffee

I am sure everyone says this but I am coming! Nate and I always talk about the perfect place to live and you may have found it!!! I wish I could hop on a plane right now and come down. Maybe when this little one inside of me gets a bit older. Also I love the lolli pop song that plays, it makes me feel like I lived back when life was simple, people loved America and loved God.

Love all your photos and where we live, too! As long as God allows us to stay here, I will be forever grateful!! :) I didn't know about Sally Loo's and Paper Sky, since I don't get up to San Luis a lot these days, but they look so enticing... I'm going to have to visit!! :)
