few years ago and we barely caught any snow back then. Needless to say we were excited about the prospect of going back. We spent the weekend wandering around, hiking around the valley and then made a quick trip back to Badger Pass to see the skiers enjoying themselves.
I decided to make packing for the quick trip very simple and stuck to neutral creams, greys, and black colors. I made a last minute decision to wear the Uggs I ruined last month since I knew I was going to be wandering around the cold up there and I brought my Sorel boots to wander around in the snow. It worked out really well as I didn't have to worry about what to wear while we were there and everything went with each other. I bought this cape scarf last Christmas as a gift because I love mine (seen here and here) but the recipient confided that she didn't really have a use for it and gave it back to me. Since I loved the blue plaid one so much, I decided to keep this one and I am glad I did because I still wear both on a regular basis.
Yosemite was wonderful and it was such a great opportunity for our family to spend time together. We went back to a couple of our favorite eateries and walked and walked and walked around together. We finished the trip with a snowball fight that I was spared because I was holding my SLR most of the time.

When we moved here two years ago, it was an aspect I missed almost immediately. We went from monthly fundraising happy hours and other social events, to private date nights. While those are fun, I know my husband and I both really enjoy giving back. It took me a little while, but I think I found a wonderful group to contribute our time and money to here in the Bay Area. Last week, we attended a donor event to hear a bit about the work our volunteers and advocated do for children in our community. The event started after work and it was dark by the time we left and took my pictures, so I apologize for the blurry pics, but it was the best I could do! I wore this wrap dress which was also my first DvF wrap and a sentimental favorite. I had worn it to work with a blazer over it and low pumps, but ditched the blazer and changed into heels for the event after work. It was perfect for the not quite cocktail, but a step above business dress code.
