Perhaps you are like me: a white girl who grew up in the American Midwest suburbs. We played Cowboys and Indians in our sprawling backyards and learned about the ways the Indians helped the Pilgrims. We cheered for sports teams and drove through towns named after tribes. We built pretend... Continue reading

Oh, thanks, Amy! If you have any other California adventure suggestions, please send them my way.
Yay! So glad to hear that.
The Cheese School had a triple creme that was absolute divine. I could not get enough! I haven't watched the season premiere yet but I'm curious to see where they take this season. I do wonder how many more seasons they can realistically go.
I'm a speed reader and reading is my biggest form of self-care. Hence, the 12 books!
I can see why you'd have mixed feelings. Some aspects seemed more geared toward 20 somethings but I thought it was an overall great commentary on relationships and technology. I see your point though- since we're in the thick of it, it might be more educational for those who are married.
Yes, good stylists are worth their weight in gold. My new stylist is outside of the city but it's about a 20 minute drive on a weekday. I would take the bus if I had to- she's that amazing.
You're going to love Sarah's book!
If you look closely, you can see a certain infamous bridge. I've experimented with a couple of different bus routes to and from work this month. Both of which require more walking; this route pays off with the view of not only Golden Gate Bridge but the ocean as well.... Continue reading

This weekend and next are going to be a whirlwind of travel and work events. All good things. Still, I've been intentional in taking breaks where I can find them. The other night I stood on a roof with people I've enjoyed getting to know and beheld San Francisco from... Continue reading

I'm not familiar with her and will definitely check her out! I don't think my Awakeners need to have written or spoken about singleness per se- I just want to see someone who has lived a kickawesome life as a single person.

We'll have to compare notes!

Keri sounds like an amazing woman!

“Whom to marry, and when will it happen—these two questions define every woman’s existence, regardless of where she was raised or what religion she does or doesn't practice. She may grow up to love women instead of men, or to decide she simply doesn't believe in marriage. No matter. These... Continue reading

Every once in a while I read a book and marvel at the synchronicity and resonance that occurs. I could have read it at a different point in my life and would have liked it but because I'm reading it now, under this particular set of circumstances, I relate more... Continue reading

It's been a good week and yet a stressful week. We're scrambling to get volunteers for an upcoming event at work and I'm still unsuccessfully looking for an apartment here, which would be par for the course except my storage container is now on its way out from Nashville and... Continue reading

Love all of those On Being episodes you mentioned! I've lost track of how many times I've listened to the interview with Nadia Bolz Weber. The Lively Show is also a new listen for me but that episode on intuition had me hooked. I can't stop thinking about it. I didn't mention all of my favorites here because of the angle I took. But this is still a good representation:

It is never not completely miserable for me. I admire people who enjoy it!

When I first decided to move to San Francisco, one of the things I was most excited about was getting to live near 3 of my cousins. We've never lived in the same state and I hadn't seen one of them in almost 15 years. Every time we get together... Continue reading

I've written a lot about my love of reading over the years. Whether it's how many books are in my To Read stack to how long it took me to read 1000 books, I'm always game for talking about the ins and outs of all things literary. My love of... Continue reading

It looks fantastic! I can't wait to see how the whole wall comes together.

I've missed open spaces since moving to SF and the serene grounds of the Villambrosa Center were just what I needed, along with the chance to spend more time with my fantastic co-workers on our staff retreat. I love a good link list. Joy the Baker and Hollywood Housewife do... Continue reading

I wonder why it's so rare for people to have these kinds of relationships because you're right: it's essential survival.
