Fresh start for Monday. Excited to be visiting NYC this week and LA next week. Follow along on #instastories for my travel antics. Also...I'm a little bummed to be missing @amandaemizrahi's last week in SF. Let's not talk about it. 😢
Donuts were made for Saturdays. These @dynamodonut come in all sorts of awesome flavors like passion fruit and spicy chocolate.
An icy cold Moscow Mule sounds preeeetty good right about now. #tgif
Figured #tbt was the perfect chance to finally finish my Copenhagen guide. Hopefully the other three travel guides will follow shortly. These are just a few of my favorite pics from the post. Click on the #linkinbio for the full post including the best place to grab a smørrebrød, if you should brave bicycling and the best thing we did while we were there.
The most delicious smoked Oregon blue cheese, wildflower honey and herbs-de-Provence hazelnuts. So much fun learning about my fellow pacific northwest state at the @traveloregon event last night. Us rain-loving people have got to stick together ☔️#oregon360
Honestly, I was going to post another picture of cheese and I thought that I might need to space it out or else you guys would think I had a problem. I do have a cheese problem and you will see a picture tomorrow of cheese. But right now enjoy this picture of succulents.
Finally a school I can excel at 🤓
Wonderful weekend. Trying to set little goals for the week ahead and have been inspired in reading Thich Nhat Hanh's book about mindfulness. Love this quote from him, “We will be more successful in all our endeavors if we can let go of the habit of running all the time, and take little pauses to relax and re-center ourselves. And we’ll also have a lot more joy in living.”
Summer Fridays were made for ice cream cones. This special cone is from the newly-opened @saltandstraw it's roasted strawberry tres leches and it's 👌🏼
I bet you knew I was going to #tbt to when this pretty lady and I were boating around Amsterdam.
This mask is currently responsible for my more-glowy-than-usual skin.
Bread, cheese and rose? Always the right choice.
Still thinking of inspiring Dutch interiors from our trip. Lots of plants with a pop of pink.
It's peony season and I can't help but want to hoard them all while they're in season.
So much fun learning new cocktail recipes and perfecting a few favorites with @campariamerica. First up was this super-easy Campari soda. #mysfstory
Didn't get a chance to share on the day of but it's been a year since I adopted little Olivia. Her foster mom found her outside of her house, half of her current weight (just 4 pounds) and ragged-looking. Through her kindness, she took her in and brought her back to health. I found her through a rescue organization and instantly knew. She quickly grew very accustomed to her new spoiled life in SF. She is such a sweetheart and I'm so happy I adopted her. Here's to many more years! #adoptdontshop
Back in San Francisco but you best believe that I will be posting plenty of #latergrams from the trip. In the meantime, time to unpack, do laundry, all that everyday stuff. This pic was taken at the magical Copenhagen botanical gardens.
This is the face of one happy lady. A little bittersweet to be leaving Amsterdam and our European vacation but excited for a fun summer in SF. So glad that I went on this trip. For me, travel is always worth the investment. We rode bikes on the crowded streets, drove a boat down canals, drank beer in a windmill, learned what hygge really means, and shared plenty of laughs over communication issues. ❤️
Rose soda on a very hot day in Amsterdam. When it's this hot eating outside is the only option 😰
Just a typical Dutch scene 🌷🚴🏼 @aimeerancer has been an amazing travel partner 👯 and even forces me to be in the photo from time to time.
