hello LA!

who gets to spend their first summer 
married living by the beach??
we are so happy here in los angeles 
and excited for the next few months of TFA training.
this weekend we hit up the original LA farmer's market at 
fairfax and 3rd, which is the best! in every city we 
love finding these kinds of places with 
million different types of we were happy 
LA has a good one. we walked around and after lots 
of perusing we finally picked a place to get 
some breakfast burritos. i am so indecisive with food 
when there are so many good choices, but we definitely 
picked well...and chase was patient enough to let me
check out every stand before we decided-
despite him being starving from our run!
later we headed to santa monica to beach it all day 
and to shop & stroll at 3rd street promenade!
we ♥ LA!

date ♥ night

nothing in the 
w o r l d
is better than 
date night
with this cute
husband of mine.

our goal is to have date night every single week 
so that we always keep dating and courting each other! 
this week date night involved...
pad thai (our favorite)followed by trying a new 
frozen yogurt place (our other favorite)...

the dinner, dessert, company, and city made it a perfect night.

happy friday!

ferry plaza farmer's market

we love the ferry building
down on the embarcadero in SF,
and we love it even more now that we
discovered a farmer's market on 
the plaza during the summer!
there were lots of yummy samples,
my favorite being the 
basil-coconut homemade ice cream.
i wouldn't mind if we used this place as our grocery store!
