Happy Thanksgiving Day Vibes

Today is Thanksgiving! I am very thankful and happy to be spending time with my SoCal family this year. We started the day like we have every year for the last four years by running a 4 mile turkey trot-esque race. It is a tradition that I love and hate. I don’t enjoy running for that long, but I love getting a workout in before we hunker down to stuff our faces. I also really enjoy that I have this tradition with my cousins and Rob. I hope we can keep it up for years to come. IMG_5442

I am missing my sister who is on a European adventure right now and I am also missing my aunt, uncle and cousins on the east coast that we celebrated with last year. But I am grateful to be enjoying delicious food (especially the grits ***link***) and catching up with everyone!

Happy Flower Mart Vibes

Last weekend I checked out the LA Flower Mart with my cousin to get ideas for flowers for her wedding next fall. I loved seeing all the fall flowers, hearing about my cousin's wedding color and flower ideas, and of course getting to spend time together while we are both living in the same area. We have never lived this close together before and I am looking forward to the next few months of being able to hang out whenever we want.

 

Happy Salsa Vibes

When I stumbled upon the largest selection of salsa I've seen in over a year, I literally stopped in my tracks. I was overwhelmed with happiness and felt so glad to be back in CA.     I picked a mild pico de gallo and it did not disappoint. It was a little taste of what living in LA will be like and I got even more excited to move than I already had been! PS- I found this selection at Shopper's Corner in Santa Cruz, CA.

Happy Goodbye Vibes

We left NYC on Monday. It was mostly a bittersweet goodbye with more periods of tears than smiles, but our last full day in the city was definitely mostly smiles. We spent a few hours at the Museum of Natural History, enjoyed dinner at Jeffrey's Grocery in the West Village and left our mark on NYC. We were there

The lock will probably be gone in a month or two, but knowing that a smattering of people will see it makes me smile. Leaving a little something behind was a great way for us to say goodbye to a city that gave us so many great memories.
