Happy Friday guys! Patrick and I are heading up to Sacramento this weekend to visit his mom to get some sun (& hopefully a little bit of a real tan lol)! Kind of obsessing over this cold shoulder top from MVB with a lace choker detail and how it pairs perfectly with these baubles! As always – all outfit details are linked below!
I don’t think i’ll ever get bored of San Francisco. Just when I think i’ve seen it all – I explore another area and get excited all over again. A couple of weeks ago one of the photographer/bloggers that i’ve been Instagram friends with since forever came to SF. Of course we planned to finally meet and I got to show her around our beautiful city. She suggested we go to Kirby Cove, which obviously I was SO down for. I can’t believe I have lived here for a year and a half without going! There is a camp site on the beach – which I also knew nothing about. How epic would camping on a beach by the Golden Gate Bridge be? If you actually like camping .. lol.
Finding a balance.
As a self-proclaimed extremist, I’m either all-in or all-out. I want it all or none at all. It is ones of my greatest strengths, but can also be a weakness. Recently I have been yo-yoing between working all through the night, and the opposite – not being able to make myself do a god damn thing. I know it’s impossible to be on your A-Game at all times – but things were starting to feel routine, I was uninspired and I wasn’t reminding myself how fortunate I am to be where I am today.
Good morning from Monterey! Patrick surprised me with a night stay in Monterey for my Birthday! He spoils me, I don’t know how I got so lucky!! We have been wanting to come back here so bad since we watched Bid Little Lies (if you haven’t watched this show you NEED TO). Yesterday we pulled off the road to walk along the beach because the waves were huge! There was also huge swarm of birds about 100 yards out in the ocean which seemed odd, and then a FREAKING WHALE was right there! This happened right as we walked up to the water! The birds went where the whale went, so we would watch where they went and see the whale come up for air every few minutes. It was crazy!!!
Time is such a strange thing. As I sit here typing this post, I could swear to you that I just turned 25 yesterday. Instead, an entire year has gone by. So much has happened in the last year. I have seen incredible growth in so many areas of my life. Growth that has been 26 years in the making, and I find myself taken aback my the amount of gratitude for where I sit today. All of the incredible highs and unbearable lows that life may throw your way start to make more and more sense as you get older. They make you appreciate things more. They make you recognize what is worth your precious thoughts and what is not. They make you laugh a little louder, love a little deeper and see the world for all of its possibilities. As another birthday passes, I realize more and more that materials don’t mean anything. Life is all about the connections you have with those close to you and the moments you get to share with them.
