food, drinks, & fun in the bay area / central coast [31]

The first quarter of the year (how is it March already!?) has led us on plenty of adventures in a nice couple of hour radius from Monterey. We've seen a bowl game in Santa Clara, explore a little bit more of San Francisco, saw another concert in Oakland, hiked - and drank plenty of beer! … Continue reading food, drinks, & fun in the bay area / central coast [31]

new york city, part 2 [ 30 ]

Hello again! February has been a busy month - so far I've trekked up to Oakland, out to Las Vegas, and off to St. Louis.

look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now : Los Angeles and HAMILTON [25]

...as you may have seen in my previous post, I've flown through LAX a bunch of times without ever having been to Los Angeles. I finally, finally got my chance to leave my footprints in the City of Angels. Rewind - as soon as we knew we would be moving to California, I started looking … Continue reading look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now : Los Angeles and HAMILTON [25]
