Holiday Inspiration | Wishing for Rain

The weather here in Southern California has been amazing and very warm for January.  I know it's winter but I'm not sure if fall has come yet.  Strange things are happening in nature, especially the flowering pears- they haven't lost their leaves yet they are in full bloom:/ 
At this very moment it is sunny and a perfect in my book, 72 degrees. There's no boohoo from me that it's not cold enough or I can't layer up in scarves, sweaters, coats and boots....but we really need some serious rain!  So cheers to rain in the forecast for Friday and some lower temperatures!
I'm sure once Little League practices start, it will be cold, rainy and muddy!!
 
Here's a pretty Holiday Inspiration Shoot we did back in December.  So many great people collaborating on this good one.  Featured here on Grey Likes Weddings and here on Wedding Sparrow:)
 
I'm so blessed to live in such an incredible neighborhood and for having amazing neighbors for letting me raid their yards with photo shoots and foraging:)
