my last roll of film

Oh, hi. Again. I have to admit blogging has not been on the forefront of my mind lately. What has been? Oh, I don’t know. MY LIFE. That seems to be the way it goes. Everything feeling up in the air and uncertain and what am I doing with my life and you know the drill. […]

pacific beach

I’m fortunate to live so close to my brother, and last weekend we went to visit while my niece was in town. After brunch we headed to the beach for smash ball, ladder ball, and cards; that evening we grilled, played Pictionary, and baked cookies with my niece…a perfect weekend to kick off the summer. […]

repurposing our china cabinet : part two

This past weekend we finally buckled down and finished our china cabinet (after our first afternoon working here). We knocked the rest of it out in a few hours, and it’s so rewarding to be done. Since this is my (our) first time repurposing a piece of furniture, we learned some things along the way. […]

malibu beach trip

Whitney’s and my beach of choice around here is Manhattan Beach, but parking can be difficult to find, and it’s not the closest beach. Since we hadn’t been, we decided to take the (longer) drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu. After reading great reviews on Yelp, we hit up Zuma Beach. The drive […]

buried

Shamefully, I have barely been using my DSLR. With the ease of my smartphone (including the ability to post instantly online) and with the fun of using an Instax camera, I just haven’t been carrying it with me. That being said, I’m going to try and pick it up more. A few weeks back (already?!), […]

weekend fun

26/365. Spent an afternoon walking along Abbott Kinney. We had hoped to explore the flea market that we thought was held there, but we had no such luck. Instead we grabbed some super healthy cheese fries, wandered the stores we can’t nearly afford, and grabbed some delicious chocolate hazelnut gelato. 27/365. We went on another […]

sunny california

It’s about time I get back to catching up with my 365 project posts. It was cold when we first came to town, but thankfully it got warmer after a couple of weeks and has pretty much stayed that way. People ain’t lyin’ when they say Southern California has perfect weather. 18/365. We have biked […]

our wedding: the ceremony

The ceremony was my absolute favorite part of the whole day. We wrote our own vows (in addition to the traditional vows) and didn’t share them until we spoke them at the ceremony. I originally told Whitney he would have to memorize his (I’m an actress, I can memorize, haha), but I’m so glad we […]
