Party party!

The newest member of the family is here - wooooo!!!  My sister gave birth a week ago to this beautiful new girl, my new niece, Hannah.  Doesn't she just melt your heart?  

She arrived a little early, so early that the doctor didn't have time to get to the hospital and a nurse had to deliver her.  Woah.  But I am SO glad she's finally here!  I already love her to pieces.

While nothing this summer will top the arrival of Hannah, Ryan and I have been trying to soak up the CA summer by getting to the beach more.  Here we are at Santa Monica beach in the evening awaiting the sunset.

Here is the said sunset.

And tonight I tried a new pickle recipe - pickled fennel with orange zest.  I got the recipe from my friend, Jo.  She has an awesome blog all about knitting and eating, check it out.  I love fennel and I can't wait to see how this turns out!

In other summer news, Ryan is job hunting like no one's business.  I think he applied to almost 50 jobs yesterday, no joke. So if you live in LA and happen to own a thriving company, please hire my husband.  

Happy August!
