Twig & Willow...and a brilliant idea

Yesterday a friend and I had breakfast at the Coffee Cup Cafe in Long Beach, which is pretty much one of the most awesome-est breakfast places around. They have this apple-honey sausage that will knock your socks off. Aaaanyway, so there is this great boutique next door called Twig & Willow. We couldn't stay in there long because our little ones were about to tear the place apart, but I did stay long enough to pretty much love every piece of jewelry I saw in there!
I came up with a brilliant (if I do say so myself) idea for my husband's Christmas present to me. I told him to just go there and pick out something for me, and boom, that's it. I was proud of myself because usually I either don't tell him what I want and then get annoyed when he doesn't get it, OR I tell him specifically and that takes all the fun out of it doesn't it? Now I know some husbands are really good at this mind reading thing, but alas mine is not. This way, I figure there is still some surprise since I don't know what exactly he will pick, and it will be something he likes too. It's a win-win ladies.

Twig & Willow has a website too which you can shop online. Here are some of the things I loved!

They also carry these divine candles, oh my goodness

AND they carry baby stuff....this Aden & Anais blanket makes me wish Charlie still got swaddled

I got this Richie Designs card on Etsy for my husband's birthday last year, and they carry it too!


  1. I love that necklace! It is wonderful.
