sweet summertime : a bucket list

July 6. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the year is HALF WAY OVER. Because honestly, wasn’t Christmas yesterday? In all seriousness, the months are blowing by. I feel like summer has been in full swing for weeks, and I have yet to do ALL THE SUMMER THINGS. Any reassuring […]

merry merry : christmas bucket list

It’s no question that the Christmas season is my absolute favorite time of year. Everything about it is magical – from the crisp mornings, the twinkle light displays, the gift giving, and general merriment – it just can’t be beat. We kicked off the season the weekend after Thanksgiving by picking out our Christmas tree, decorating […]

sweet summertime : final bucket list update

While the official start of fall isn’t until next week, autumnal weather seems to have come early for us Los Angelinos (knock on wood).

sweet summertime : bucket list update 2

It’s time for another update! Even though fall doesn’t technically begin until the end of September, summer always seems to wind down in August. I live for summer, but can I say I’m already excited for fall?! This year has LEGIT flown by (and I know, I’m old for saying that), but how is the […]

dog days of summer

Ferris Beuler at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary. I managed to squeeze in some final summer adventures before the end of the season. I love summertime and had some really wonderful weekends to round it out. Garlic fries at our neighborhood carnival (before almost puking them up on the Gravitron). 70s vibes for the ABBA concert at the Hollywood […]

autumn in LA

Well, autumn is here (that’s what my calendar says anyway). I’m still holding out for those cooler temps and colored leaves, but gosh darn it if I won’t celebrate like we actually have seasons in Los Angeles. I love the summertime but am always ready for a change of season when fall creeps around – […]

summer in los angeles

The changing of the seasons always comes at the exact right time for me – I think it was planned that way. So I’m savoring these last few weeks of summer’s sun and long days before autumn greets us. I made an unofficial guide to the summer, but I love nothing if not a good list, […]

25 for my 25th : progress
