I started this blog when I was living in NYC when I was running a ton as I wanted to document my training for different races (see my first post…I feel like I was a different person!). Since then, this has grown … More Happy 5 year anniversary to this blog!
The highlight of last week was a gorgeous 3-day stretch when the weather was in the 70s! These days are rare in SF and let me tell you, a 10-degree difference makes the vibe feel like winter versus summer. It felt like the whole city was out-and-about, and I kept telling Joe we NEEDED to … More Dinner with the Haight crew + Marin hike + never-ending plant loop + decorating my kitchen + reflection on fitness during COVID
A few highlights this week! First off, I went on a hike in the neighborhood last week after work. I stumbled upon a park called Interior Green Belt that ended up being a HUGE network of trails with amazing 360 views of the city.

Happy new year!! I think everyone enthusiastically joins with me in waving a huge fat GOODBYE to 2020. 😛 I spent new year’s eve with my family playing mahjong, watching a movie, and Facetiming Joe. It was perfection and I’m grateful my family was all together for the first NYE in many years. ❤ I … More 2020 reflection: things I was grateful for

Some of you may know that I met my partner Joe on a dating app (Facebook). Before Joe, I was more-or-less single for 5 years, and the majority of my dating life was from people met online — I estimate I’ve been on 30+ online dates throughout my 20’s living in NYC and SF!

Hi bogging friends!! Over the past few posts, I’ve been hinting at a special project we have been tirelessly working on: revamping Joe’s backyard garden.

And so we took it upon ourselves to clean it … More Urban backyard garden project in San Francisco
5 things I miss 1. Kava Lounge. Oh how I miss the community and friends at my second home, and just having a chill, non-alcoholic place to kick back and relax 3-4 times of week.
