2016.

Am I too late to the new years resolutions game? Maybe yes, maybe no, either way there are comin’! “You can do anything but, you can’t do everything.” For so long I fought that saying with everything in my body. I never wanted to believe it- I wanted to believe I could do anything and…

Be Here Now: 2016

It’s time, it’s here, and it’s now. This is the time to do all those things you’ve promised yourself you would do “someday”. That someday is finally here, go and live! Make those plans you’ve been meaning to make, book that flight, take that trip, try that new food, tell that someone how you feel.…

The Christmas List

“I need your list…” my mother threatens me again as if that will make me suddenly create a list in my mind of materialistic items I desire.  Sure, I could probably come up with a list of fashionable, practical, designer and beautiful things that would be nice to have. But, I don’t need any of it.…

my favorite love story.

Three years ago 12-13-12; my life changed in the absolute best way possible. I was at Minneapolis International Airport- posted <—- this photo,    boarded a plane and headed to Charlottesville, Virginia. I was completely unaware of what my weekend held but I knew fully well it was going to be an adventure. I had…

Balboa Park – December Nights

The most wonderful time of the year- Christmas season has finally dawned upon us. And, even where the sun shines all the time and the weather rarely drops below forty degrees- it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Though we are missing the snow and cool weather, and spend our days on the beaches…

Sea Cruise.

Staring out onto the crystal blue ocean, my mind was both swirling and oddly relaxed. What would become of me, what would I do next, will this new chapter be all that we hoped it would be? Work, play, adventures and everything in-between. Suddenly, the boat hit a giant wave nearly knocking me off my…

Sundays.

Sitting on the bench, the sun beat down, the sand brushed onto my bare-legs and my love sat beside me- in that moment life felt content. David and I were on a Sunday bike ride- riding down to the ocean, along the pier then making our way circling the Bay, trying to soak in as…

thankful.

It’s that time of the year again- the time when we gather around the table with a glass of wine, some delicious food and of course, our closest friends and family. It’s the time of the year when we remind ourselves exactly why we are so blessed and for all the reasons we are thankful. As…

Up, Up and Away

The older I get, the more I see and understand the importance of experiences over ‘things’. It’s nice to spoil a special someone sometimes, but frequently those things get thrown, used then forgotten about. So, when my special someone was turning 26 last week, I knew I wanted to plan a little adventure for us…

The Ends of the Earth.

Thursday, June 11th, Dave and I loaded up the little Jetta, bid our farewells to Seattle and headed down the Pacific Coast Highway toward San Diego. It was a trip most only dream about, yet here we were, driving the Pacific Coast. We woke up with the sun, because I of course, was as anxious…
