It’s Been a Minute

I know, I know. I’ve been putting things other than new blog posts first in my life lately, but I’m crossing stuff off my list left and right so don’t get used to the quiet on my end! I’ve been a busy little bee out here in sunny California! Still living out of boxes, but you better believe my holiday scented candles are out and burning. In this case, the priority is clear. Here’s what I’ve been up to. Continue reading

Just a Picnic in the Park

As one of the last summer weekends in the city, getting a picnic in was obviously very necessary. After a few iced coffees and a quick stop at Whole Foods for our sandwiches, we were ready to venture west to the park. Of course the grass was soaked (and somehow turned my friend’s shorts green?), so bringing the blanket was the best decision! My skirt stayed white, so all is well here. Continue reading

May I Present: My Christmas Tree!

Christmas 2016 is the first year I have my very own tree. I mean, my own, 6 foot, live tree that smells amazing and is filled with just my own decorations exactly how I want it. Yeah, I’ve had a the 2 or 3 footers in previous years, and last year I paid $90 for one that wasn’t even up to my waist. The stand was included, for an extra 20 bucks. So this year when I heard about Tyler’s Trees, I was obsessed before I could even say Bah Humbug! Continue reading
