Hello! Ahh, how has a MONTH already gone by since I last posted??
Well, we are wrapping up our adventure here in Costa Rica. It has been one of the most amazing trips. I can’t believe how much I love love love this place. After this, we have one more month of traveling until we get settled again. I just wanted to stop in and quickly share a few pictures and let you know we’re alive and well. I’ll be back to regular posting soon. As for now, I’m living on what they call Caribbean time.
As always, you can find us posting things in real-time on Instagram.
Hi Friends! Happy October! If you’ve stuck around (thank you), then you know I’ve been a little MIA the last week or so. Things have been crazy here. I spent the last 48 hours of my life launching a new website for a client (26.5 hours), packed up our little apartment here in Northern California (10 hours), snuck away for a super fun dinner date with my hubby (1.5 hours), and slept (12 hours). Woo! I’m exhausted. And my favorite little blog here has been neglected.So sorry friends!
Anyway we are headed on to our next adventure (more on that soon) but until then we have lots more fun planned. Including: spending a few nights in a cabin in the woods with friends, driving down the coast to Southern California (!), road tripping back across the county, a trip to COSTA RICA (!!!), and lots more. We are trying to jam pack as much fun as we can before the next chapter starts. But of course, that will be fun too. Because I’ll be with my favorite person in the whole world. Too cheesy? Haha, I like it.
Sometime in the next week or so I hope to overflow this blog roll with all sorts of goodies from adventures this summer. Including a quick trip into SF that included so much fogged we ditched it after breakfast and explored beautiful Saulsalito (pictured above).
We started off the morning right, with a huge breakfast at Brenda’s French Soul Food. I ordered the bananas foster French toast and I can’t even remember what these two got because mine food was so good.
Once we were done stuffing our faces, we did a little more biking and wandered around Haight Street. Eventually we made our way into Golden Gate park where the dahlias were in full bloom! This exhibit pretty much stole our hearts and I wouldn’t be surprised if we have a full-fledged dahlia garden here in the next few years.After that we rode bikes to the coast, just so I could see the water, and then we made our way back to the ferry to head home. It was so so fun to have Kaitlin here. I love my bestie time!
Oh man, seems like ages since we’ve been in the city (here and here)! This time we decided to bring out bikes and get around the city that way. It was a little scary, Jonathan even had a near hit with a vehicle, but we survived. I have to say, spending a few hours (or two days) biking around a city can make one feel pretty tough. By the end I was swervin’ and yelling at cars (and yelling is so not in my nature).
Anyway, the Renegade Craft Fair happened to be going on on Sunday so we headed there first after our ferry ride over. We wandered for quite some time. I collected random promotional materials for my design journal and Jonathan meticulously inspected the craftsmanship of the items being sold. Being so craft as he is, he’s quite particular when it comes to stuff like this. It just makes me smile.
It was so chilly that we stopped frequently for hot drinks. I decided since we were biking as much as we were, to treat myself to soy chai lattes and we gorged on pizza for dinner. Well deserved I might add – we DID make it across the Golden Gate Bridge (biking across this has been a dream of mine!) and even up to the top of the hill for the best view of the bridge.
Silly guy! I think Kaitlin said something like “show how you feel about biking around the city with your love.” Hahaha.
Oops. We’re a little out of order here, but oh well!

Today we drove north to Chico to go to the Farmer’s Market. Jonny and I had so much fun last time that we thought we’d go again and take Kaitlin this time. Did I mention that these bouquets are only $5 each? And they are HUGE! And beyond gorgeous.
We also ate some street food, and ooo-ed and ahh-ed over succulents. Too bad we couldn’t take them all home!
