Sacramento, California

I spent Friday wandering around Sacramento with the ever so lovely Jennifer E Snyder. First things first, I wanna brag about this incredible lady – she’s a wonderful writer, deep question asker, big dreamer, and great hugger. But she’s also absolutely impressive and her biggest project yet will have you listening for hours. She created…

Santa Cruz, California

It was a long three day weekend, so we spent the days and the evenings exploring the California coast. Sunday was reserved for Santa Cruz (hi Nadia!) and we headed down despite the rain. My favorite place for brunch there is Linda’s Seabreeze Café. It’s a small restaurant in an old house. There’s a wait…

Backpacking in Lassen National Park, California

I started blogging my John Muir Trail adventures the other day and it just got… overwhelming. How do you go about sharing hundreds of images from one of the most meaningful, challenging, growth inspiring trips you have ever been on?! For me the answer was: You don’t. You seek out a backpacking trip you did…

Wandering Around San Francisco – North Beach, Union Square, Chinatown

We love living in Berkeley and there are so many wonderful things to do over here that we often get caught up in just being and exploring in the East Bay. But we live just a short BART ride away from one of the most incredible cities in the world and Sam and I have…

Homemade Lattice Crust Apple Pie

I came home from a lovely wedding the other day where we wrapped up the night with amazing apple pie and right away I just HAD to make one. That weekend I chopped up a whole big bag of apples, made a yummy and butter homemade crust, and ate apple pie in my pajamas all…

Pumpkin Patching on the Coast

Just dug these favorites out from our little pumpkin patching adventures in Santa Cruz before Halloween. I love the white and orange pumpkins together. And that’s me in the pumpkin at the end. 🙂

Blue Bottle Coffee at the Morse Building in Oakland, California

In the middle of the week, it’s nice to take a moment to meet up with a new friend, try a new place, and linger over your coffee instead of taking it at your desk. Cory picked me up at my apartment and we jetted the ten minute drive over to this super cute little…

Chia seed pudding for breakfast

I kept meaning to try chia seed pudding, I really did. It’s the kind of alternative weird thing that makes its way around the Internet that I usually end up liking, adopting, and keeping forever. Like kale chips. I still love those. (Personally though, zucchini “spaghetti” just never worked for me. That shit’s gross.) Anyways,…

You don’t have to be good to be joyful

One of the greatest lies we tell ourselves is that to enjoy something, we need to be good at it. You should strive to be good at your job and your friendships and perhaps a few other things, but as far as hobbies go, you do not need to succeed to have fun. You can…
