the lovely ladies behind bash, please, fiore beauty and the lifestyled invited me to their fun, grown up version of girl scout camp a couple of weeks ago in ojai, california. a fantastic group of creative women from several disciplines (design, photography, events, fashion) took over the entire hotel and bunked up two to a room. my roomie was francesca who loved this special alone time with mama. it was so nice to get together with real life friends and to make new ones. we hiked, picked oranges, swam, hung out at my favorite hippie juice place, and sat by the fire. we are heading back soon with several of our favorite families. cannot wait!
