Big Changes

photo taken by me in the beautiful Golden Gate Park

Life is about to get a whole lot different around these parts. Tomorrow is my last day at my current job. Why might you ask?! I've decided to embark on the journey of going back to school to get my BFA in Web Design and Advertising. It really hasn't hit me yet, not even a little. I'm sure it will at some point in the next few days. Weeeeeeeee!

Loving The Weaver House

Happy Friday!
Have you discovered the Portland based creative ladies over at the Weaver House? I'm loving everything about them from their look books to their online shop. What a dream it is to work with, or for, them someday.

Here is what the weekend holds:
- Mexican Fiesta at our house tonight. I make a mean chicken taco.
- Volunteering at the Free Farm on Saturday in SF. {you should do the same!}
- Going out dancing with J into the wee hours
- A nice relaxing Sunday at home

Outside Lands via Instagram

1. Festival shoes/  2. Wine Lands/  3. A bouquet from the DIY Bouquet table/  4. Clouds didn't stop us one bit/  5. Twin Peaks Stage= My favorite stage/  6. Me and my best friends in my backyard pre festival
Outside Lands Music Festival came and went, and in all honesty happened way too fast. I had such a magical weekend, saw some of my favorite bands, danced with close friends by my side and definitely indulged in some tasty food. Some highlights include: Of Monsters of Men set, sweet potato tater tots with berry-bbq sause and dancing with my boy. If you went I hope you didn't let the massive crowds effect you and that you had a wonderful time overall.

It's All Ok

photo taken by me on Instagram

All in good in the world. There isn't something that clicked in my head and made me decide to take a break from blogging, it just sorta happened. I simply don't feel the need to constantly post and share all my deep thoughts all the time. There are lots of life changes and new beginning going on in life right now. Don't worry I'm not quitting or giving up in any way, just taking a break.

Outside Lands 2012

one of my favorite aspects of the festival... the wine tent

Its Outside Lands week here in SF and it's definitely the talk of the town. Everywhere I go I hear "are you going to OSL" or "who are you most excited to see?" It's one of my favorite festivals out there due to the fact that it's in the majestic Golden Gate Park, the amazing festival styles from all the locals and the seriously awesome food and drink from some of SF's top restaurants. Here are some artists that I'm excited to see this weekend:

Tea Lady

I'm a tea lady for sure. There is something about the feeling of both my hands around the warm cup, smelling the aroma, that I just can't get enough of. This past weekend I had two unforgettable cups of tea that I simply must share.

The first {pictured above} is a cup of chai tea from Samovar Tee Lounge. Samovar is one of my go to places for a healthy meal and a perfect cup of tea. They have some pretty amazing and unique teas that you won't find anywhere else!

The second is from my local Thai food restaurant that is a total hidden gem of our neighborhood. This was a simple hot Thai tea. The best part is that open sign reflecting in the cup and that they keep the tea flowing. My cup was never empty.

The Art of Vogue

Let be honest... Vogue knows what they're doing. These covers date back from 1909-1940 and are marvelous if you ask me. Sometimes I ask myself why they still don't make em' this way cause, to me, these are flawless and so artistic.

I hope you had a great weekend. J and I took naps everyday and even took two naps on Saturday. Talk about relaxing! I blame our extreme comfortable bed.
