From a few weekends ago, I got brunch with Jen and Jon in Eastern Market. Afterwards, we walked around the city. The District is filled with color, and I love discovering more of it everyday.

Looking at 2018 with my head up high. Here’s to accomplishing a few more dreams, giving a whole lot of joy and love, and taking on some bigger risks.
2017, you were a roller coaster ride. Thankful to spend my New Year’s Eve weekend with my family in New York City. Ready to start fresh in 2018.
Located right in Southern California, Joshua Tree National Park is one of my favorite national parks. It has more than 750 species of plants blooming in the Mojave Desert, along with their wealth of trails for hiking, which Ben and I took advantage. We hiked up Ryan Mountain, a moderately easy 3-mile hike that brought us to a gorgeous sunset view.
In early November, Ben and I traveled to San Diego. It was a belated birthday gift from him and a very special getaway for the both of us. After being 3 months apart, it was amazing to get some alone time with each other and explore somewhere new. Long distance isn’t easy, and I find myself missing him everyday.
We spent the majority of our vacation searching for the best California burritos and carne asada fries in San Diego. Part 2 of our trip is next. We visited Joshua Tree (Ben’s first time)!
This has been long overdue, but I am finally uploading photos from my trip to San Francisco (back in October-November). I went to visit my boyfriend for his birthday, and we got to explore more of the city that he lives in.
I’m falling more in love with this city every time I go.
This past Sunday, I went apple picking at Homestead Farm with Jen and Danny. While the weather wasn’t nearly cold enough to describe as a crisp fall day, we did check off a cliche autumn activity. Sadly, no apple cider donuts were involved.
Now still on my list…bake an apple tart with the Fuji apples we got.
Oh, it’s pronounced “Nor-fik?” My GPS corrected me on my 4-5 hour drive from DC to Norfolk, VA. Traffic was a nightmare from the city, but it was worth it to see my friends this past weekend.
From visiting the Norfolk Botanical Garden to the Chrysler Art Museum, this smaller city outside of DC was a nice getaway for my birthday.
