The Avo Field Diaries


September 2020.  After 30 years in Seattle + 14 years in Alaska before that, it was time for some sunshine.  With both daughters both launched out of the nest, Richard and I headed south to Carpinteria, CA in Santa Barbara County.  


My head continues to spin with the lifestyle whiplash that comes with our little cottage in the middle of an avocado farm.   


Our space expands considerably thanks to our outside areas (tub anyone?) and the year-round easy weather.  Still, it's been an education and adjustment to fit in this 1-bedroom/1-bath space.  With some delicate communication skills, we're still married! 

We are so grateful for this new nest and safe harbor during the pandemic.  Considered Shop has been inspired by this gorgeous place and my quest to find a new creative outlet.
