And with a blink of an eye, somehow it’s already August! Is it just me, or has time really flown by this summer? San Francisco’s summer is pretty much the same, foggy temperate weather all year…that paired with the quarantine and long work hours the last few weeks has meant time going by in a … More Picnic hangs + birthday barbecue feat. impossible meat
Hello to my friends in the blogosphere! Since we last talked, San Francisco has slowly been opening up and it’s really livened the atmosphere around here. It still feels like SF is the most conservative city in the U.S. right now in terms of COVID precautions: everyone wears face masks, restaurants/stores/businesses are still closed…the good … More SF opening up again: picnic with friends + arts & crafts + new hikes
Hey hey! This past weekend was a very fun and appreciated loooong weekend. My company graciously gave us Friday and Monday off, making it a full 4-days off! In my entire adult life, this was the first time I had off work and was NOT on the road traveling (for obvious reasons), and we opted … More Celebrating Joe’s birthday + staycation for MDW

We packed some snacks and beer in the cooler and went on our favorite walk in the Presidio, … More Quarantine continued + happy 6 month anniversary!
I hope you all are staying safe! It is now week 3 of full lockdown in SF, which has basically felt like a looong stay-cation where every day looks the same. I’ve been enjoying waking up on my own time, doing my work without the adrenaline/stress of the office, and having ample time to run/walk … More Another week of social distancing
The highlight of the weekend was going to wine country for a girls trip (plus partners) to celebrate the engagements of Kayla and Princess. Princess is always throwing thoughtful events for our girl gang, and so we thought it would be nice to do something for her this time. 🙂 First up, our group met … More Celebrating our brides-to-be in Sonoma
This past weekend completely hit the spot. Me and my 7 closest girlfriends in SF got together and rented a yurt (a.k.a. a big fancy tent) in Colfax, a small town 1 hour outside of Tahoe. It was the first time all of the girls got together in almost 2 months, and so there was … More Girl’s weekend “glamp-ing” in a yurt
