this week’s highlights

Saturday / You know those brisk Fall days when you feel like bundling up, sitting by a fire, and enjoying a warm bowl of soup or a savory pasta dish? Well yeah, we don’t get those days in San Diego. And don’t get me wrong, I love San Diego. But I also miss those chilly […]

Saturday / After a few week’s travel break from our local farmer’s market, we returned this morning, and it was absolutely gord-geous. The air was crisp (for us), the sun was shining (as usual), and the produce was definitely looking like Fall’s bounty – squash, pomegranates, apples, persimmons, colorful Swiss chard and pumpkins. As much […]

101 in 1001: The End

If you’ve been reading my blog for long enough, then you probably remember the 101 in 1001 list of goals, dreams and fun ideas that I had created for myself back in 2016. Being the list-lover that I am, after I heard about this idea from a friend of a friend of a friend, I […]

this week’s highlights

Saturday / Yesterday we started traveling back home to San Diego. And unfortunately it did not go as planned. Mother Nature most definitely had a different plan in mind for us. An overnight stop in Phoenix with no rental cars to get home by sort of plan. So to say that I am already missing […]

Why I Broke Up With Instagram

It was at least over a year ago, but probably even longer. Ryan and I were away traveling, and we had been sending my family pictures of our adventures along the way. And that’s when it came in. My sister had messaged me saying that she loved all of our pictures, “. . .but where […]

This past week wasn’t about appointments or what day of the week it was, meetings or schedules, or checking things off of my to-do list. Our week was about family, connection, laughter and memories. And really just about getting out of the flow of our “normal” life. Going home always feels like such a huge […]

Thirty – Six

How did I get here? I mean yes, I literally know how I got here. But really, 36? It’s sort of funny how when you’re young, you can barely wait to grow up. And time can’t seem to pass quick enough. But then you grow up, and start to realize how short and truly amazing […]

Saturday / Did anyone else grow up watching such classics as “Nothing But Trouble,” “the Burbs” or even “Uncle Buck?” Yep, while other families were most likely snuggling up on the sofa watching “the Sound of Music,” my Dad was putting on “Edward Scissorhands” or the like. And although I was mildly scared (and scarred) […]

Saturday / We probably go to the grocery store more than I would like to admit. And really, it’s a love-hate sort of situation. I actually love going to the grocery store. Except for the days when I don’t feel like going at all. But then I love that we are able to sort of […]

this week’s highlights

Saturday / It’s not often that we make it up to La Jolla on the weekends, which is sort of funny because that is really the only time that we can anticipate less traffic. But today we did. And not just for errands. In fact, no errands were run. It was purely for enjoyment. We […]
