Finishing 2018 Strong

I can't believe that there are only a few more days left of 2018. The past few days have found me wanting to finish the year strong. Is anyone else feeling that too? And as we head into the very last weekend, I have unfortunately also found myself unable to fall asleep. Which means it's... Continue Reading →

(Another) Trip to LA

We went down to LA again recently. This time, it was to attend the wedding of my ex-coworker. The wedding was held at SmogShoppe in Culver City, a cute little event space that (obviously) used to be an actual smog shop. I had a lot of fun, despite not knowing anyone else there besides my...

Cherry Picking Time!

I'm finally back with a long overdue post. The week after Simon and I went strawberry picking, I went back up to Brentwood to take my mom cherry picking. It's one of her favorite fruits so we went as an early mother's day outing. I chose G&S Farms because it was one of the very... Continue Reading →

Exciting News!

Simon and I got engaged this past weekend! Now I get to refer to him as my fiancé. I'm super excited although I can't say I'm that surprised. It has been 9 years in the making! Now I get to start the overwhelming task of wedding planning... Can't wait!

Finding Nature in an Unexpected Place

After my volunteer shift at Cat Town a couple of weekends ago, I found myself with a very open schedule. Normally after a morning shift, I would go home and have lunch with Simon. But he actually had his own volunteering event that day, which meant that I was free to do literally whatever I... Continue Reading →

A Day in the Strawberry Fields

It's strawberry season! Simon and I drove to Brentwood this past weekend to visit a U-Pick farm called Chan's Fruit Stand. We found the farm through Harvest Time in Brentwood, a non-profit organization whose goal is to bring awareness to the agricultural business in Brentwood. I'm not affiliated with them but I've been following their... Continue Reading →

Celebrating Our 9 Year Anniversary

Simon and I celebrated our 9 year (dating) anniversary last month! I normally get him a more cutesy/lovey dovey type of cards. But this year, we both (unknowingly) got each other sillier cards. Our anniversary was a weekday this year and normally, we would've celebrated on the weekend. This year, we were discussing maybe taking... Continue Reading →

There’s No Escape…

I don't have a picture related to this post so please enjoy this set of stairs from a day trip to Sausalito. I participated in another escape room game recently to celebrate a friend's birthday. This was Simon's and my fourth escape room and I am very disappointed to report that we did not escape.... Continue Reading →

Consistency, Not Perfection

One of the biggest barriers I faced with the last blog I attempted was being able to post consistently. I would write those first few posts, set them to publish on a schedule that I thought I could keep, and then it would go downhill after that. Now, it wasn't that I didn't have any...
