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.

Spring Cleaning in October

It’s that time of the year, where I get the urge to purge!  Some get it in the spring, I, apparently, get it in the fall.  Also, let’s not kid ourselves, I haven’t purged and de-cluttered in several years.  I am pretty easy going when it comes to my room.  I leave clothes on my bed every once in a while,  I have dust that tends to pile up more than I’d like, and I usually don’t care enough to do anything about it.  But, sometimes, I reach a point where I just can’t continue with how things look.  (more…)

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…)
