Dry Soda

So one of the things I discovered in lovely Temecula, was this “Dry Soda“. I saw it in this olive oil shop, and was intrigued by the simple and beautiful packaging. It’s basically soda with just a hint of flavor. Kind of like fruit water, but carbonated. It was very very light.

Mundane Aesthetic: Temecula

Good morning Temecula! Over the weekend (actually Thrusday through Saturday) I found myself in the lovely town of Temecula, CA.

blue munday: Driftwood and Seaside cottages

Happy munday. Summer dayz… remember those? If you’re a slave to the grind like I am, then you’ll understand my longing for ocean breezes right about now. Even though I live fairly close to the beach, I am not there at this moment in time, and would rather be, than here in front of this computer procrastinating from work, hehe. The August 2007 issue of Better Homes & Gardens has a great feature
