thankful for home

On my days off, I like to wake up slowly and catch up with the YouTube channels I follow (which eventually leads to me watching as many celebrity interviews as I can handle) before getting ready and walking to whichever coffee shop is calling my name that day.

I started this morning off with two or three hours of scrolling Pinterest for nursery inspiration after waking up at 5 AM (again) for no reason. I finally got out of bed shortly after Brandon left for work and immediately started revving up my mind to get a to do list made for the day.

Then I looked over at a tiny corner of our apartment and how the light was hitting it and suddenly, I got the urge to make coffee in my French press, heat up some leftover pear coffee cake and enjoy my home.

13 Thoughts from 13 Weeks

If you read this title and wondered what the heck I was writing about, let me fill you in: I'm pregnant! Brandon and I announced the pregnancy on Instagram a couple months ago, which is pretty early considering most couples wait until right around now to spill the news. Props to those who wait this long, I was ready to tell basically everyone the moment I found out.

Anniversary in San Francisco

Brandon and I celebrated our 4 & 11 – that's 4 years of marriage and 11 of togetherness – by escaping the heat of Sacramento and heading to San Francisco.

At least, we thought we were escaping the heat.

Usually, I try to pack as many things to do or see as possible. This time was a little different. I've been super tired lately and decided to make this day trip as low key as possible. I wanted to get coffee, see the Degas exhibit at the Legion of Honor, and hang out at the beach. As long as we did those things, I'd be happy. And that's exactly what we did.

August in Photos

Doing a photo a day project was a nice excuse to take photos for the fun of it, to play without the pressure of executing an "artsy" photo flawlessly. It reminded me of how much fun I had doing my Project 365 in college.

Plus it meant I got to #documentrelentlessly which is basically the only resolution I've been able to stick to.

Here are some highlights in photos!

10 Pieces, 10 Outfits

Earlier this year I participated in my first ever 10x10 challenge. It was such a cool learning experience and I really enjoyed exercising my styling muscles throughout the challenge. So I was a little bummed that I didn’t jump in on the fun for the summer challenge.

I definitely wanted to share more about the 10 key items I picked for my summer capsule wardrobe and I thought what better way to do that than to style some outfits!

10 outfits to be exact.
