I’m so so so excited. My apartment is really starting to feel like home as I watch my vision come to life. As you may know, I moved into my new SF digs about 2 months ago, and getting it together has been a process, let me tell you.

Let’s face it… moving is such a pain in the ass, and this move definitely did not go off without a hitch. There were a few hiccups, such as my couch not fitting in the elevator. I live on the 8th floor, so this was a problem. As annoying as this was, it was also kind of amazing, because it gave me the perfect excuse to start from square one.… Read More

Big Basin Winery

So… I’ve rarely gotten political on here, and I rarely will… but boy oh boy did last week send me on an emotional roller coaster ride, as I know it did for so many.

Without getting too into it, I was less than pleased with the results. Let me re-phrase that. I was absolutely TERRIFIED by the results. Let’s just say I had my pantsuit on and I was ready to party, instead, the night ended with my friends and I in tears, holding each other, and fearful of what the next day, and the next four years would hold.

“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.”¬†
~Henry David Thoreau

I have been super duper busy over the past month or so [busy in the best way]… relocating to the bay area, looking for a place of my own [a daunting task… I didn’t realize I had to sign away my first born child to rent a place in the city… seriously], spending lots of quality time with the fam [esp my adorable nephew Lucho], and exploring my new surroundings. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by the people I love most, in the city I love most and I can’t wait to see how this next chapter unfolds.… Read More

If You’re Going To San Francisco…

I know I’ve been a little off the grid as of late… I’m still trying to play catch up after my mini vacay to my favorite city by the bay. I think it’s really important to get away every now and then, to unwind, escape the nuances of everyday life, and reassess what’s really important. Here are some photo highlights of the trip…

I was sick the entire trip… as in no voice sick, but I didn’t let it get me down. Alternate forms of communication¬†+ sippin’ on some sizzurp.… Read More

I know I have been MIA for the past week or so, but this absence was not without good reason. I was spending time in my favorite city [[San Francisco]] with some of my favorite people. I spent my days there doing what I do best {shopping} to doing something else I do best {wine tasting} to doing something I don’t do very well at all {relaxing} <– I blame this on technology. Though I was sick all weekend and literally had no voice at all for two days {maybe that was a blessing to those I was with as I wasn’t able to sing on our 2+ hour drive into Carmel} I didn’t let it get me down.… Read More
