Falling In Love..

I have fallen in love. I have fallen in love with the streets of a city, the buildings that create stories, the people who pass by, the ocean as it kisses the sand hello, and the moon as it pulls her away. I have fallen in love many times, and because of this- I have…

New Year, Same Me.

For each New Year, instead of doing one resolution, I instead create a list of various items; things I want to accomplish, goals I want to achieve, and ways I want to improve my life. For 2017 three of my goals are 1. Spend more time outside, 2. Be in the moment, 3. Find the…

SB Livin’

“My roots have grown but I don’t know where they are…” The best part of moving is having a brand new city to explore: new sights to see, new treats to taste, new wines to sample and more things to feel. I came to Santa Barbara kicking and screaming. I did not want to move…

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…

It is no…
