Saying goodbye.

I miss posting because unless I write about what's happening in my life and have photos, I don't remember it. I really do have the worst memory.

At the same time, I am living my life. No longer an outsider just documenting everything. So that's what the goal was, these first couple years of marriage. Trying to be present. Pulling myself out of the relative singledom that comes with a long term, long distance relationship. I don't really talk about that here but it wasn't so easy. Routines are established now though, and that helps. We took a lot of mini vacations- treating ourselves to weekends away. Experiencing California.

But I am sad about not having any blog posts that help me remember.

So I'm coming back but this time it will be in a whole new space:

If there's anyone left out there subscribed (who knows, with Google Reader being dead and all) but please update your readers!

Thanks. :)


All I do is instagram these days, so I put a little widget on the sidebar to show the latest I'm snapping. I don't put everything I take on Facebook- that's bound to get annoying. Although I still post a lot of cats, but people seem to like them okay.

The saddest part is that I don't take as many photos with a real camera anymore! Here are some from June.

Meeting a new friend at Rare Device.

I'm looking into things like VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS and talking about BRAND AESTHETIC with people these days. I don't know what's happening. Overdosing on stylemint, that's what's going on. Somebody please stop me.


On Fish and food.

I used to be called "Fish" and to this day, I am still not sure why. Possibly a reference to my supremely heavy lenses. It's taken me about 20 years (did I say that right? TWENTY years?) to be comfortable with being an everyday glasses kind of girl. I'm currently picking out spiffy new specs from Mezzmer right now. Show and tell later, for sure.

I finally had some local tacos and they were wonderful. There's really nothing else to say about that.



With things like instagram, personal and professional obligations, it gets harder and harder to blog regularly. Sometimes it's just easier to take a snapshot during the day and capture little moments that way. But I miss it!

I turned 30 this week. My best girls flew in from the opposite coast, there was an impromptu party, everyone wore cat or bunny ears. (There is something awesome to be said about your friends when they come in, see said ears and put them on without question.)

I am really excited about this next decade. As trendy as it is, yoga has entered my life and it feels amazing. I'm learning how to be kind to myself, physically and emotionally. It's been a gradual process but it's very, very good.


An update

I don't shop much anymore but scored some good walking flats off of Hautelook. You can still get them from shoe sites online. They are PUMA Zandy's in rouge red, although in real life are definitely hot pink.


Discovered Mission Mini's- it's been a long time since I've had a cupcake worth paying for. Is that harsh? Whatever, these were good.

Hey there red velvet. You look lost, let me show you the way.. TO MY BELLY.


More food exploration..




Another fruit we tried while my parents were in town but I've forgotten what it's called. Anyone?

-- Edit: Chirimoya! --



My first breakfast burrito

I didn't know what I had been missing. Also, toasting it after wrapping changes everything.
