I have been in such a book funk since getting back from Europe. I kinda binged on books while traveling and felt a little burnt out. Between flights, waking up jet lagged and reading, and busting out those books on trains, I was ready to put the words down for a minute and binge on Netflix. Which I did by watching all of Scandal then Narcos.Read More
You guys, you guys, you guys...it is finally soup season!! I honestly think our hot days are behind us here in the Bay Area and we might even have RAIN this weekend. The forecast looks promising for some wet weather, but I seriously will believe it when I see it. Either way, I'm gettin' prepared! The bourbon is brushed off for some toddy's, the movies are being picked out for some quality couch time and my oven has been turned ON.Read More
Oh my goodness. I can't believe I am sharing the last little bit of my summer vacation. I've been taking my time sharing these; going through each of my favorite photos and reliving all the wonderfulness we experienced. I look back and smile about every cappuccino, gelato, brightly colored building and magical skyline I got to experience. It just makes me happy. Purely happy. Can I be a professional traveler? I really believe I could easily pick up and live in one of these places, hide, and soak up all the good things these they have to offer. I wonder if Chris would be up for that? I'm sure I can social work the hell out of some Europeans - ya?Read More
Sunny September - you flew by! We said good-bye to summer and hello to the fall season with you. Your sunrises and sunsets were seriously on point. Your mornings were cooler. Your evenings grew darker. You had many unexpected surprises that we so welcome. You were great, thanks for that. October, we have things planned. Let's get to it!Read More
Autumn solstice is officially here this week! Of course, we have our classic Bay Area September where it is hot as balls. It is a little difficult to "get into the spirit" with this shiz. And this crazy weather always happens when you least expect it. Last week it was foggy and chilly in the morning, I was wearing a scarf, even took my boots out, and BAM. Sunday it was like 98 degrees. Um, what. Can we get some balance here, please?Read More
Happy September friends! So who is pulling out their big fuzzy boots and running to Starbucks for a PSL? Is that happening yet? Let's not let that happen yet. We still have three whole, amazing, incredible weeks of summer left! Don't get me wrong, I am excited for pumpkin everything, thick hearty soups, scarves, and warm cups of bourbon in my hand, but let's not rush that - pllllease. Thanks. Because I still want to celebrate grill season a bit longer. And there is still a boat load of summer veggies that need to be consumed until you are sick of them (that's nature's perfect timing by the way). Let's keep it going.Read More
We started August our jet setting to Europe. That took the first two weeks of the month for us and it was more than amazing. I'm rounding up my trips in separate posts. Check out London here...Rome and Venice will be sooooooon!
Other than those trips - August was good! Here's a little bit of the rest of the month in some photos and words.Read More
