Birthday Cupcakes

Birthday Cupcakes

So I celebrated my birthday basically all of that week. We started with Brunch at the Ritz, family dinner on Wednesday, and a small celebration with my friends at my new apartment on Friday. I invited a ton of people, but somehow Fall and October in particular is crazy busy for people.

My friend Mick (hi Mick!) brought these amazing cupcakes from this great bakery in Los Gatos, my brother and his roomie came and made guacamole. I had a ton of cheese and snacks and totally forgot to take a group photo, or any photos outside of food (clearly my priorities were elsewhere!)

It was a great evening. How do you like to celebrate your birthday? Do you like to binge on sweets like me?



Summer 2016


Since you guys loved the Nantucket Video I made so much, I made another little montage of all the great things I did this summer. Since today is my first day with students at my new school, I created this early knowing I wouldn’t have time to write posts this week. I hope you like it!

It was one for the books, with travel, good times with friends and family! Are there any more videos I should make? Any topics you’d like to see covered?

How was your summer? Did you do anything you’ll remember in 20 years?

Girls Day at the Beach

So this is a few snaps from the last week! It’s only been one short week of summer, but I’ve packed a lot in.

Three beach days in one Week!

Summer Sunsets

We’ve had some pretty amazing sunsets here in San Jose, and I tried to capture the gorgeous colors we got last week!


We had a lovely mellow Father’s Day in Capitola with the whole fam (including the dog!) at a dog friendly beach, followed up by yummy food at Gayle’s Bakery.

How was your week? Do anything fun or summery?
