If you’ve been following along on my last few posts, you know that Alex and I agreed to gift one another experiences this last Christmas. In my last post, you can read all about Al’s experience to me: an evening blending wine at The Blending Lab. For my gift to Al, I knew right away what I … More 2.28 Rock Climbing with REI
As I mentioned in a previous post, this last Christmas was the first Christmas that Alex and I spent just the two of us in California! We knew it was going to be a very different sort of holiday for us, so we wanted to do something a little more special for gift-giving this year. … More 2.6.19 The Blending Lab, LA’s Newest and Coolest Winery!
January is always one of my favorite months of the year because I love jumping back into that “normal life” schedule again after the holidays, and as much as people love to complain about “New Years Resolutioners”…I love to hear about peoples’ hopes and dreams and goals for the new year!

This was the first time since living here that both of our parents came out at the same time — and my dad’s first trip out here since I … More 1.9 Our Parents Week Recap
Today I just wanted to share some photos that I took during our little morning trip to the Vasquez Rocks to hike with the pups! We were dog-sitting Banjo for the weekend, and whenever we dog sit, we like to take him on adventures … I like to think it helps him not be so “homesick” … More 12.19 A Morning at Vasquez Rocks
Hello all! I’m going to try and keep this month’s Lookback Post on the shorter side today! For two reasons, one being that I’ve already touched on some things in previous posts (ie. our hiking adventures!) and two, I want to do a separate post on our very first Parents Week! I have a ton … More 12.6 November in Review
I’ve been trying to take a little bit of time each day to stop and breathe and reflect on the things I’m most thankful for in each given day. Some days my list is awfully long.
