Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

I just love Spring and all that it brings! Blooming flowers and plants have made their way into our home and yard, herbs are starting to sprout in outdoor pots, and the sunshine spills in our windows.

documenting our beautiful, livable and simplified family life in southern california

california life + style

welcome

Pretty Smitten began as a creative outlet after the birth of my first child in 2008. What started as a sweet little Etsy shop has now grown into a full Southern California Life + Style site featuring home decor, food, entertaining and wellness content. I believe there is beauty in the simplified, and I strive to create a beautiful happy home where we can stop to enjoy the little things. I hope within this blog you'll find a little inspiration for your own home life as well.

I'm also now thrilled to be offering fine art lifestyle photography. Documenting love in all forms is truly a gift...sweet little newborns, expecting mamas, families and couples...photos are our only "pause button."  Learn more about Elizabeth Johnson Photography by clicking below!
