Last week I explored an area of San Francisco that, for no real reason, I had never visited before. The Castro District is full of joy, positive people, beautiful street art, green hills, and yummy food. How do I keep missing all of these amazing places in my own backyard? San Francisco, I can't believe I'm finally truly discovering you in my 30's. What is your favorite part of your city or town?
One of our first (and favorite!) stops during our most recent trip to Portland was this red doubledecker bus turned Egyptian coffee cafe. I ordered a red wine mocha and my sister ordered something with minced pistachios. Some of the best gourmet coffee I've ever tasted! Oh, to be under that red roof now 😍 What's your favorite coffee beverage?
I'm outside for my lunch break ATM and boy is it HOT! 😩🔥At least it's not as painful as I felt when this picture was taken. Those high altitude hikes will get you everytime! ▪️▪️▪️ Where are you in the world right now, and how's the weather? 🌏☀️🤔
Yikes, summer is moving quickly! Unless you are below the age of 10, I guess that's always true. 🙄 Is anyone working on a summer bucketlist? I don't have one (they overwhelm me), but I'd love to get inspired! Share yours in the comments 🤗 ▪️▪️▪️ Dreaming of Portland, Oregon's lush Japanese Garden. 🌿🌳🌲🌸 *Cue Portlandia theme song by Washed out. Bonus points if you know it!* 📺
This weekend I went on a mini road trip to visit a friend in central California. 🚗 It was blisteringly hot, we had no beach nearby to visit, and it's not exactly the foodie capital of the world. But, good company changes everything, and I definitely had a blast. Here are some of the things that made my trip: 💃🏼🥓🍺 ▪️▪️▪️ What is today's photo of? With all of this dry, hot weather, I'm dreaming of Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. Still can't get over that water color! ▪️▪️▪️ How did you spend your weekend?
I've learned to stop and smell the roses no matter how crazy life gets. 🌹 It makes things waaaaaaay better. ▪️▪️▪️ Also: Go, Detroit. I believe in you. ▪️▪️▪️ Also, I know those aren't roses in the photo above. 🌺🌸🌎 OK, now tell me your favorite cliché saying.... Ready, steady, GO!
Day 3 at my new job ✅ 🤗 ▪️▪️▪️ Impressions so far: People are great, the work will be rewarding, and I am virtually surrounded by writers and creatives like me. I couldn't be happier! Unless of course I was here exploring the Crystal Palace in Madrid again 😍 ▪️▪️▪️ What is your dream job? Where would it be?
