i had a whole other post planned today, but i had to change it up…

i was in montecito all day today visiting projects, part of the day near the ocean the rest of the day up in the hills, beauty everywhere. i find the tree lined streets, lush gardens, and romantic architecture of montecito so inspiring…

…all i could think about on the way home was my new years resolution to just “make it beautiful!” everything i do, everything around me, all i want is for it all to be beautiful- inside and out!

enjoy some more beautiful images from my tumblr and pinterest.
