A single issue that has been on my list considering that we moved to San Diego: I wanted some good pictures of the 3 of us (aka me, David, Gert) in our new city! In other words, I wanted some pictures of us that I could hang in our home that weren’t from our wedding and also didn’t really feel super weird and staged–but it’s one particular of these points that is super uncomplicated to retain pushing off.
We ultimately set a tiny some thing up with my pal Kristina, and I am SO glad that we did! Not only am I dying more than all of Gert’s hilarious facial expressions, but I’m also definitely content to have a tiny slice of our life captured at golden hour. We took them at Scripps Pier, a beach exactly where we go a lot for David to surf (when Gert and I stroll or study). Moral of the story: get the good pictures taken, even through the non-unique events. These are the every day moments that I want to keep in mind!
Aritzia is forever one particular of my preferred below-the-radar go-to’s for super versatile products, particularly now that I found there is a shop in San Diego. I often head there for tops that can function for meetings OR weekend OR a good dinner out: they’re typically flattering, in a selection of colors and not also highly-priced. I picked up this sweater and wore it for pictures, and then promptly for a function trip the subsequent day, and I essentially want to put on it for each and every day this winter.
We visited my parents in their new retired life in Arizona final week (which is amazing by the way: it’s like college for adults!) and one particular of the initial points on our loved ones to-do list: generating homemade raviolis from a loved ones recipe! It’s a quite labor- and time-intensive procedure, so it’s valuable to have a couple of additional sets of hands. We make sufficient that we can freeze a bunch of batches, and then we packed many bags to bring residence with us: it’s so good to have some homemade dinners, prepared to go on busy days!
I was on a lot of planes and in hotel rooms this week, so I got a great quantity of reading performed! I completely invest via A Double Life, which is a sophisticated mystery I did not want to place down. It also produced me want to study Flynn Berry’s initial book, which apparently won a bunch of awards! I also read Human Acts, which follows the student uprisings in South Korea in the early 1980’s: a tragedy that I knew completely absolutely nothing about, and is extremely sad to reflect on. I’m reading The Fantastic Believers appropriate now, and it’s one particular of the handful of current books that has entirely captured me from the extremely initial web page.

This weekend, I’m in New York City! My firm vacation celebration was final evening, and I’m seeking forward to performing all of my preferred NYC-y points: a New York Pilates class, catching up with girlfriends more than wine, and a large stroll down Fifth Avenue to see all of the vacation decorations.
