This & That

August 26, 2015

In July and August, I worked hard organizing stunning homes, went on several local weekend adventures, and continued feeling more at ease in this new city. I also exhausted my nerves with a job interview or two. The huge geographical distance between my family and me was highlighted a few frustrating times in the past two months, but I am choosing to practice gratitude for being where I am.

Here are few pretty moments I've captured over the past two months. There is always more outside the frame. 

M was gifted a selfie stick - ha!

Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.

Video | Lake Tahoe

August 17, 2015

We were invited to join a few friends in North Lake Tahoe last weekend, and had a blast hiking, swimming (brrr!), paddle boarding, and relaxing by the water. Tahoe's water is stunningly clear, and the views made me feel further than the four hour drive from the city.  M and I are already planning our next visit while it's still warm, and also eagerly await ski season in the mountains.

Evening Walks in Pac Heights

A walk throughout the steep hills of our adjacent neighborhood is a nice way to wind down in the evenings. I enjoy watching the setting sunlight grace the grand homes.

Mom's SF Visit

August 6, 2015

Description of Photo Description of Photo Description of Photo Last weekend my mom flew in for a San Francisco visit. I always cherish one-on-one time with my mama, and it was especially fun to explore my new city together. We hiked and ate and drank and explored, and of course four days flew too fast.

Some of my favorite moments include:
Sunset walks around Pac Heights hills, Mitchell's fro-yo, hiking around Mt. Tam, Ferry Marketplace building, Mill Valley favorite Sol Food, downtown shopping, vegan Mexican lunch at Gracias Madre with my cousin, Off the Grid for Sunday Funday, exploring Land's End, Rodin bronze sculptures at the Legion of Honor, fresh meals at home, and evening laughs courtesy of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

I appreciate mom's dedication to regular visits in each town we live, which makes the distance bearable. THANK YOU, MAMA! xo
