Portland Anniversary Trip 2019 – Day 2 (Tom McCall Park)

Today, I'm sharing my 2nd post in my Portland Trip series. My first post was a bit too intense/dense so I'm going to change things up a little this time. Instead of sharing everything that we did and ate, I'm just going to focus on one aspect of Day 2: Tom McCall Waterfront Park. We... Continue Reading →

Portland Anniversary Trip 2019 – Day 0.5 & 1

Back in March, Simon and I celebrated our ten (10!) year anniversary by heading up to Portland. I have so many pictures I was to share so I'm splitting these posts by day. I'm also trying out uploading my pictures in a smaller size to save myself time on manually adjusting the size of each... Continue Reading →

Wedding Caterer Tasting

Pesto Crusted Salmon w/ Mashed Potatoes and Seasonal Veggies It's already February, which means only 7 more months until the wedding! Please excuse the poor quality picture but I wanted to share this part of the process. Besides picking out the venue, doing the caterer tasting has definitely been our favorite part so far. Our...

Happy (belated) New Year! Hope you had a good 2018. And if you didn't, hope 2019 is 10x better! I was going to start the year off with a post about my goals for 2019, mainly focusing on how I wanted to feel and what I wanted to experience. But dang, it's be a rough... Continue Reading →

Finishing 2018 Strong

I can't believe that there are only a few more days left of 2018. The past few days have found me wanting to finish the year strong. Is anyone else feeling that too? And as we head into the very last weekend, I have unfortunately also found myself unable to fall asleep. Which means it's... Continue Reading →

(Another) Trip to LA

We went down to LA again recently. This time, it was to attend the wedding of my ex-coworker. The wedding was held at SmogShoppe in Culver City, a cute little event space that (obviously) used to be an actual smog shop. I had a lot of fun, despite not knowing anyone else there besides my...

Cherry Picking Time!

I'm finally back with a long overdue post. The week after Simon and I went strawberry picking, I went back up to Brentwood to take my mom cherry picking. It's one of her favorite fruits so we went as an early mother's day outing. I chose G&S Farms because it was one of the very... Continue Reading →

Exciting News!

Simon and I got engaged this past weekend! Now I get to refer to him as my fiancé. I'm super excited although I can't say I'm that surprised. It has been 9 years in the making! Now I get to start the overwhelming task of wedding planning... Can't wait!

Finding Nature in an Unexpected Place

After my volunteer shift at Cat Town a couple of weekends ago, I found myself with a very open schedule. Normally after a morning shift, I would go home and have lunch with Simon. But he actually had his own volunteering event that day, which meant that I was free to do literally whatever I... Continue Reading →

A Day in the Strawberry Fields

It's strawberry season! Simon and I drove to Brentwood this past weekend to visit a U-Pick farm called Chan's Fruit Stand. We found the farm through Harvest Time in Brentwood, a non-profit organization whose goal is to bring awareness to the agricultural business in Brentwood. I'm not affiliated with them but I've been following their... Continue Reading →
