I recognize that it’s mid-June and I’m about to post vacation photos from Nov. 2012 but I needed half-a-year to recover from that trip. It. Was. So. Fun. We spent a few glorious days in Paris eating food that I’m still craving and drinking more wine than I do in California (a lot). Next we took a train to Reims where my BFF got married in the most gorgeous chateau wearing not one, but two insane dresses (Lhuillier and Lanvin). We stayed up way too late each night drinking more champagne than I do in California (a lot). By the time the wedding was over, my immune system was shot. Plus it was winter and pretty cold and rainy, but when you’re in a land that literally looks like a fairytale nothing can get you down.
We spent the second half of our trip in Spain, specifically Barcelona and San Sebastian. Gaudi stole my heart and San Sebastian is quite possibly my favorite place ever. Last time I was in Europe, we were broke college students. This time, the Husband and I ate and drank like royalty and San Sebastian was the ideal place to do it. Before heading back to Paris to fly home, we took a day trip to Biarritz, a small beach town on the border of France and Spain. The town was picturesque. In fact, all of Europe is picturesque, which made taking pictures really easy. See proof below.
Most photos by me, unless they’re of me, in which case The Husband took them. See more here.
When I started blogging three years ago, I never imagined I would actually find friends on the Internet. Well, I guess I’m a gal of the 21st century because not only did I find and meet these friends in real life, but I had the pleasure of collaborating with them professionally. A couple of months ago, during a boozy brunch with Erika and Irene, we discussed our first project together — Erika’s daughter’s “big girl room”, which she had been transitioning from a nursery. A couple weeks later over a couple bottles of wine, this is what we produced.
I wish I was Leighton!

I know I completely disappeared for like half a year, but you guys, I had a really good reason. You see, between my day job at the office and my night job as a wife and mother to 3 very needy dogs, I started a business! As terrifying as it is and as self-counscious and insecure that I sometimes feel, I’m now posing as a photographer and I would be so grateful for your support. For everyone that followed me at The Lonely Wife Project, thank you and welcome to the Sabra Lattos project. I would be honored if you continued to follow me on this crazy endeavor.
Also, a HUGE thank you to Erika Brechtel from Small Shop who is the mastermind behind my brand!
Big ass XXs and OOs!
