Mr. W, Nicky and I went for a quick trip to the Bay Area this past weekend. It's always inspiring!

Rolling hills, family and, I won't lie, food - all those things make me very happy. I tend to daydream on the road trip back and this time my dreams consisted of a rectangular pool, squarish timber houses and goats (more on that later).

And while we're at it, I would like that pool (and hot tub of course) to be heated with solar energy. XO
