Visited Santa Monica, my boyfriend’s hometown, for a friend’s wedding. I saw the canals in Venice, California for the first time!
Spend a weekend camping in Pinnacles National Park.
Alamo Square park re-opened! This is my favorite park in San Francisco and it was closed for over a year for renovations. My dog, Max, and I go almost every day.
Ate all of the BBQ in Austin, Texas on a reunion trip with my best friend from high school, Aimee.
Drank wine in Paso Robles, California for my friend Ashley's 30th birthday.
Walked the High Line and finally curbed my craving for a New York bagel.
Road-tripped down Highway 1 to Santa Cruz with two of my best friends.
Climbed North Dome to get a perfect view of half dome in Yosemite National Park. I hiked 12 miles but it was worth the view.
Drove to Half Moon Bay to visit Arata’s Pumpkin Patch.
Swam in a pool of sprinkles at the Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco.
Celebrated Thanksgiving in Santa Monica, California.
Celebrated my one year anniversary with my boyfriend. We escaped to Aptos, California for a weekend in Airbnb’s #1 listing, the Mushroom Dome.
