life lately -- may is upon us!
actually, let's be honest, may
is almost over. it's hard to
believe! may always involves
a change and transition, and
the beginning of summertime.
this year it really has an ending
as i finish TFA in 2 weeks and
have some new beginnings. i have
thought about this may 2014 for the
past 2 years, wondering if i'd ever
make it through and finish my masters
and TFA. now one is done, and one is
almost there. i wondered how i would
have changed, what my next plans would
be, where we'd be moving, etc. i would
never have believed that we'd be staying
here in the bay, chase would have a job
with google & have turned down law school,
my parents would be moving abroad,
and i would be considering options out
here in san francisco. i wouldn't have
believed any of it, but i'm glad it's true.
life brings surprises, but they are good
ones. i know this is where we are supposed
to be. it's just a time of transition and
change for me, so instead of fighting it
i'm soaking it in. i'm ready for whatever
comes next, and until then, i'm enjoying this
month of may before life changes yet again.
^^ walks down by the ocean make
weeknights feel like weekends lately
^^ you know it's almost summer when your
fridge looks like this! wedding invites + summer
parties galore. how can you not love this time of year?
^^ frequenting this place as always
^^ pink flower boxes on the
city sidewalk, yes please.
^^ i can't walk the streets of my own city without
stopping every 5 minutes and looking like a tourist
because there are just so many beautiful things.
^^ one for her, one for him
^^ a rose garden is not a bad place to
sit and write thank you notes from the birthday
^^ tried this fancy restaurant off the embarcadero
^^ bike rides + more flowers, hello summer!
(until the SF summer fog rolls in for 3 months...:)
^^ this view. i will not miss my commute,
but i do love this nightly sight.
i'll probably just live at the ferry building
farmer's market from now on...it has
everything i'd ever need in one place.
^^ or i could live at nick's crispy tacos.
^^ late night shopping in the heart of
the city // + pretty new trinkets.

favorite breakfast in the city.
^^ explored our apartment building and realized
we can get on the ROOF (!!!!!!!!) what!! // also
i probably will need this california cookie cutter.

^^ stopping to smell the roses before my last grad class //
now i have time to do things i want, like back to my french
^^ aptly named restaurant, says chase ;)
^^ guys! i cooked for the first time in weeks!
traveling + teeny kitchen + commute has meant
no cooking for a while. finally made some favorites:
^^ views of union square from our favorite restaurant
^^ new SF discovery = city lights bookstore.
famous for having lots of famous writers
and poets visit way back when, and bob
dylan even hung out there! it's pretty cool.
