Rachael always celebrates her birthday in epic style and this year was no different. She managed to coordinate a 12 frand meet-up near Santa Cruz in a part of California called the Slow Coast (which is basically the town of Davenport, CA). She also set us up on the most gorgeous property...you know, just your normal, run-of-the-mill 22 acre privately owned coastal redwood retreat with a gigantic main lodge and a nearby cabin with a creek winding through it. SUPER casual. And the owners (Dana and Wallace) are rad as can be.
It was three days of max chilling - the best food and 'homemade' rosé provided by Parker (who is a world class chef dude extraordinaire), killer foraged florals by Kasia, and some general tablescapery schemed up by yours truly. An extra special thanks to my girlfriend Tiff at BALM for providing the much loved max chilling tshirts for the ladies.
Three days of winter rain, nature, and unconditional love. Could not have wished for anything better.
