Awesome Socks



I am going totally bonkers over these socks. They're thin, so they don't bulge under jeans, and look totally cute peeking out of your favorite boots. Both of my pairs are in the laundry already. Waaaahh. :(

Wouldn't they make a great gift for a dear friend?

I Have a Boyfriend!

Yep. I didn't want to say anything for a while because I was so cautious about this one. It was so easy and perfect, it couldn't possibly last. But... here we are 1 year later, and it's still pretty great.

Above all, Alex is the happiest guy I know. It was a little alarming at first; how can nothing get you down? But now I realize I'm happier around him, so I don't question it anymore. When I'm bummed out about something silly, he always puts things in perspective.

Alex likes sleeping under the stars, loves my cats more than he loves me, is very organized and neat, and has never seen The Godfather. I love him. :)



P.S. It all started with a jumpsuit

Post-Thanksgiving


Happy December, everyone!

I trust you had the coziest start of the holiday season. Akin to last year, I'm still feeling bleh about the holidays. That is not to say I didn't enjoy a break from work.

My parents, brother, and Jackie went on a road trip to San Diego for Thanksgiving. And I took advantage of the empty streets on Thursday to go on a run, work on a secret project, make my tripod do things I didn't think was possible, and test the limits of my cheese-eating capacity. Turns out I can eat a whole wheel of brie! It was the loveliest of days.

And here we are in December! How is that possible?!
