The Whitsunday Islands

The Whitsunday Islands

50 Shades of Blue

September 5-9, 2017

Two years ago, a friend of mine posted a photo on Instagram of the most amazing swirly water and sand beach I’ve ever seen.  I immediately messaged him asking where on Earth this place was, to which he replied, “it’s called Whitsundays in Australia off of Airlie Beach”.  Hello new bucket list location!  Side note: the beach was actually WhiteHaven Beach, at the inlet. It’s a 7km beach (4 miles or so) ending with a swirl of sand and water flowing from the middle of the island out to the ocean. STUNNING.

Bienvenido a Bogotá!

In July, my family and I ventured to a new continent: South America! Colombia, specifically.  Upon arrival in Bogotá, I have officially stepped foot in 6 out of the 7 continents.  Only Antarctica remains, which might remain un-visited for a while.  Keep reading for our adventures and plenty of pictures!  My next post will be about our short road trip to Villa de Leyva, a beautiful village a few hours away.

A Belated Father’s Day Celebration with the San Francisco Giants

June 26, 2017 @ AT&T Park

My parents are in back town!  They are back in the Bay for the summer.  It’s been 6 months since I’ve seen them, so picking them up from the airport was so exciting!  The day they land in the States for the summer signifies, for me, the first real day of summer.  I’m excited for all of our adventures this summer!  We have a lot planned.

Enjoying The Small Things

Enjoying The Small Things

June 15 – 18, 2017

The world keeps turning, whether we like it or not. 

After a long and emotional week – heart broken to say I attended a funeral – this weekend was all about enjoying the small things.  Sometimes, a loss serves as a reminder to appreciate life, the small things, what we do still have here.   (more…)

Girls Trip – April 13-16, 2017

Thursday:

My roommate/cousin/bff and I decided to go on a girls trip to San Diego since we were sick and tired of the gloomy San Francisco weather!  We jumped on a plane straight from work and headed down to warmer weather.  We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina since it looked to be pretty central to all the activities we wanted to do.  All checked in, we went on yelp to find a spot for dinner and stumbled upon Voltaire Beach House. It was such a great spot, half indoors and half outdoors, with trivia night in session as we arrived.  We kept our eyes on the s’mores option for dessert, but by the time we remembered (thanks drinks) the kitchen was already closed. Don’t worry, we went back for them on Saturday and they were totally worth it. (more…)
