Cozy, outdoorsy weekend getaway in Mendocino, CA

Last weekend was basically pure happiness. Joe and I wanted to do something special together before my 2-week solo trip to Kenya (leaving this Friday!), and so we somewhat spontaneously booked a weekend trip to Mendocino, a small coastal town 4 hours north of SF. We ended up having the most relaxing, refreshing few days … More Cozy, outdoorsy weekend getaway in Mendocino, CA

Social week + launch party + Halloween Burner party + easy outdoorsy Sunday

Hey hey! I’m blogging from my Monday morning flight to D.C. – it’s that time of the month again where I’m on the road for work. This time will be a short trip as I didn’t tack on an additional leg or weekend trip for fun. To be honest, I’ve been really enjoying this year’s … More Social week + launch party + Halloween Burner party + easy outdoorsy Sunday

Secret concert + brunch convert + Burning Man Decompression + Tennessee Valley hike

These past few weeks in SF in between work trips (a.k.a not traveling) have been really REALLY nice. It’s amazing how quickly our bodies/minds can adapt to situations.

Post-travel and summer blues + after-burn show

And in a blink of an eye…summer is over! Is anyone seriously depressed about that fact or is it just me? Last week was a weird, emotional, yet uplifting one…I’m usually okay transitioning after big trips, but after Nicaragua I had major post-travel blues.

Settled with chaos + random shenanigans of my week

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great weekend filled with relaxing summer fun 🙂 My intention last week was to slow things down, take time to reflect and transition back to life after my Philippines trip. I feel centered and happy with the reflection (see my last post!) and feel like I’m present with … More Settled with chaos + random shenanigans of my week

Abrupt transition + a very SF weekend + Ocean Beach bonfire

Hey there! I cannot believe it’s only been one week since my Philippines trip. The transition back to reality was quite abrupt, not because I’m not happy to be back since I do love it here and feel like I’m in a great spot with my life in SF, but more so because right when … More Abrupt transition + a very SF weekend + Ocean Beach bonfire
