Darling Dear Polaroid: Weekend Getaway

Today's Polaroid theme is all about the weekend getaway. We're headed to the foothills of the Sierras this weekend with some dear New York guests. I am completely psyched about life in a cabin just outside Nevada City for three whole days. Seems like a good way to gain some perspective from my bustling life in Oakland and my newly renovated studio before I start a new job next week. (Eek!)

I tend to do too much on vacation but this time I am really aiming for some R&R. Instead of trying to see everything that is potentially interesting about adorable Nevada City, I'm aiming for a swim in the Yuba River, a long walk with my camera in hand, and some fireside downtime with friends. We'll see if I can stick to the true R&R plan when I get there and suddenly I want to head in five directions all at once. Oh, the challenge! In the meantime, TGIF, and happy weekend to you.
