Dinner with the Haight crew + Marin hike + never-ending plant loop + decorating my kitchen + reflection on fitness during COVID

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

How I write a blog post + wine night with girlfriends + cat bonding in Joe’s garden + creeping on neighbors

I have a different topic for this post in addition to my usual weekly recap below. I’ve been blogging once a week for almost 5 years, and I thought it would fun to share how I think through and write my blog posts for those who are curious. 🙂 How I write a blog post … More How I write a blog post + wine night with girlfriends + cat bonding in Joe’s garden + creeping on neighbors

Berkeley day trip: hiking and flea market + switching roles for videos

Happy day-lights savings! I was very excited for this time change since it feels like the official start of spring. Now I have a few things to share today… First off, I’m LOVING the plants from Joe’s garden for my own apartment decor. Joe grew these bunny tails and dried them; they go perfectly with … More Berkeley day trip: hiking and flea market + switching roles for videos

Hip hop dance class + birthday picnic + saying goodbye + bringing back Burner parties + slight return to normalcy

Last week was the closest I’ve felt to normalcy yet, and a big part was due to a jam-packed weekend of festivities. During COVID, I’d be lucky to get out for something just once in a week, but last weekend was one of those with back-to-back events that reminded me of life before COVID. Overall, … More Hip hop dance class + birthday picnic + saying goodbye + bringing back Burner parties + slight return to normalcy

Filming something special + girl’s day feat. Soul Cycle and Sausalito + showing up that matters

Happy start to another week! After coming back from our weekend trip to Carmel last weekend, I kept it pretty low key last week. I feel like any trip, even local ones, takes energy out of you and sleeping in your own bed feels so great after :P. By the time the weekend hit, I … More Filming something special + girl’s day feat.

Day trip to Bass Lake and Bolinas + girl time in the Mission + falling in love with California again

Growing up in upstate New York, fall was always my favorite season. I loved the crisp morning air and rituals like apple picking and raking leaves. Yet since moving to SF, I quickly learned that it oddly gets more summery than ever starting in October, aka SF’s “delayed summer”. While I miss the traditional fall, … More Day trip to Bass Lake and Bolinas + girl time in the Mission + falling in love with California again

Hawaiian themed birthday + Mount Tamalpais hike + new friend in SF

Howdy! The wild fires on the west coast have made these last two weeks feel pretty up and down. There were several days of very unhealthy air quality which basically meant shelter-in-place 2.0. You may have seen on the news how San Francisco was literally ORANGE for a few days. This was the view outside … More Hawaiian themed birthday + Mount Tamalpais hike + new friend in SF

Random thoughts: LASIK surgery, painting & crafting fun, watermelons galore, garden update, and cat cuddling

Hey blog! With all my posts on travel/weekend trips, I haven’t talked about the day-to-day stuff around here lately. Even though there have been a few exciting activities going on this summer, most of our days are still the same old: working remotely, running, taking walks in the neighborhood, and entertaining ourselves quarantine style. Here … More Random thoughts: LASIK surgery, painting & crafting fun, watermelons galore, garden update, and cat cuddling
