also got to stay in the Japanese Tea House and be with some of my favorite women, brainstorm and relax. Winter at the coast is soothing and inspiring. Barren trees, sun melting through layers of clouds, golden orangey yellows in greys, crisp nights, clear, stars, so many conifers, ever dynamic ocean, tea by a wood fire, solitude and friendship.

Celebrating the longer days that begin this Friday morning with pancakes! after the longest night of the year on the 22nd... only brighter days to come.
Happy Solstice! xox, Naomi
