On a rainy afternoon earlier this week I loaded up the car with kids and snacks, picked up Henry from school, and headed straight to the Conservatory of Flowers. It’s one of my favorite places in Golden Gate Park. Have you been there? It’s an indoor series of connected greenhouses filled to the brim with exotic tropical plants. Here are some photos of our afternoon in partnership with Old Navy’s kids spring line, which is SO good! Full of bright florals, classic patterns, and vintage-inspired styles. The perfect cheer to an otherwise dreary rainy day…

It’s been a long time since we’ve done a fab finds but who can resist a good deal? Here are 10 of my favorite finds around the web for under $40!
The best content on this site comes when I’m keeping my eyes and ears on the ground. Listening and learning and meeting new people with fresh ideas and perspectives. Getting a sense of what the buzz on the street is, what’s important to them and those they love, what’s new and exciting that they want to share. Being in the know. But there’s this thing about having 3 kids that makes my head spin. It becomes more and more challenging mentally to juggle things (even with childcare). I wish I had several more extra hours in the day to be everything and everyone I need to be! And my current team is busy enough photographing and crafting, researching, keeping things running smoothly on the backend, and also many being busy moms themselves. I really want Say Yes to continue to produce the best content that’s useful, compelling, and relevant for you guys.
So! I’m excited to announce that we’re expanding our team…
