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 […]

explore la : main street

Main Street in Santa Monica holds a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s because it’s one of the first spots we explored when we moved to LA (four years ago…WHAT). Or maybe it’s because it’s filled with so many cute shops and restaurants that are FAR AWAY from the hoards of tourists and shoppers at […]

explore la : abbot kinney

Though it’s been raining consistently as of late (and I’ve been a big baby about it), the first day of the year was too nice not to be outside. 70 degrees and sunny – exactly why people move to Los Angeles (and a few other reasons, perhaps). So, after a quiet night spent in on New Year’s Eve, […]

ladies adventure club

The Sunday before last I attended a Super Moon gathering in Griffith Park with the Ladies Adventure Club, a gathering of women, curated by women, for the purpose of education, creativity, and exploration. This group of women came together to listen and connect and support one another, and it was the absolute loveliest thing. How often […]

Without the twinkle lights and festive merriment, it’s just not cute anymore. But alas, this icy monster is making it even harder to rise out of bed in the morning (will […]

snorkeling

Well, there is a slight chill in the air this morning, and as I can sometimes be overly optimistic, I’m taking it as a sign that fall is arriving. That being said, I thought it’s about time I share the last of my summer adventures before I dive into this autumn season with full force. […]

the best things to do in southern california

We’ve lived in Los Angeles for over a year now, and though I’m hardly an expert (I’m still absolutely horrible with LA geography), I have found a great many things to do in this city that I absolutely love (and take every visiting guest to go do). So if you’re planning on making a trip […]

on our walks

I go on walks. A lot. I guess that kind of comes with the territory when you have a dog. But I love it. It gives me time to (try to) get away from my own thoughts. It gives me fresh air to breathe and warm sunshine to feel on my skin. It also gives […]
