Flower Party

Having wine and pizza, and making flower crowns with a group of awesome girls? Sign me up please! My amazing friend Kat thought up a great idea of throwing a flower party where she would provide flowers and teach the basics about floral arrangements, she wanted to see if it’s something she would want to offer on her website – Lula Mae

^^ Kat picked out the most beautiful flowers for us to play with! ^^

^^ She explained the basics of floral arrangements. “Think of it as putting together an outfit!” ^^

I think  that the test run was very much a success! I hope to attend more flower parties in the future! If you’re in the San Diego area and are interested in having a flower party or if you just need some gorgeous flowers check out Kat’s website – Lula Mae

Have a beautiful day!

Border X Brewery

This past weekend we visited Border X Brewery’s 2nd location in Barrio Logan. Their new location is truly an amazing space with years and years of history within it’s walls.  The space was built in 1923 in the Mission Revival Style as the San Diego Trust and Commerce Bank. In 1927, the bank of Italy took over San Diego Trust and Commerce Bank which was later reorganized as the Bank of America in 1931, serving the area until 1948. The property became a Porkyland Tortilla factory in 1977 then to become a Roberto’s Taco Shop and now a brewery. (bank < brewery!!!)

So, we’re super excited that a brewery has opened up near our neighborhood. There’s so many amazing old buildings and houses around these parts, nothing makes me happier to see them revived and given a new life. And now, I feel like a complete fool, I forgot to take a photo of the building from the outside, duh! You’ll just have to go there for yourself. It’s the big orange building on the corner of Logan and Sampson.

Happy place – City Farmer’s Nursery & Nate’s Garden Grill

There’s a local nursery in City Heights called City Farmer’s Nursery and in the same parking lot there’s a cute little restaurant called Nate’s Garden Grill. I love this place so much!  The grill has a great local craft beer selection and all of their menu items are farm fresh. It makes for a really nice outing… perusing the nursery and admiring all of the plants after a beer and yummy good food. It’s what heaven must be like.

It’s such a happy place. The owner lives on site and basically turned his property into a self-sustaining little village… it’s amazing!
