And so the cycle of life continues, and the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I am in disbelief as to how quickly the last year went by and I can definitely say twenty four was a big year for me. As young as I am there is something quite fearful about aging, which has mostly been drilled into my brain through society’s norms and illusions. But what really gets me is the fact that every year I turn another year older and I don’t feel much different from the last. The subtle changes are barely noticable, however, being twenty five feels incredibly different from being nineteen, I can see and feel those differences in retrospect. And as I become older, I hold more appreciation for the little things and the important things in life.
I woke up yesterday and I was twenty five. I can vividly remember many memories as if they happened yesterday which makes the process feel both insanely fast and surpisingly slow. I like this year so far, I have a lot to learn and much to experience. Plus when you add two plus five it equals seven. Lucky number seven.

One of my favorite things to do, especially after a long day at work, is to go on a walk. My two favorite four-legged friends (Bronco and Baley) love to come with me and explore. I think they loved it more than I did since the field had just been cut and baled for hay, it felt like new territory to them.

I’ve been on a hiatus from blogging, but I wanted to share what I had been up to in the last month. I was fortunate to be able to take some time off and explore. I had amazing company and experiences I will never forget.
Some places I was able to see and experience…
Lake Tahoe, NV
Berkeley Rose Garden, Berkeley, CA
Muir Woods National Monument, CA
Pacific Coast and Highway 1, CA
San Francisco, CA
Give me fringe and watch me twirl.
It was beautiful today, and my spirits were high. I may be wearing black but the way this shawl dances when I move makes it feel bright.

When I lived in New York City, one of my favorite activities was having Sunday brunch with my friends. There’s nothing like having a good laugh with people you love over a couple mimosas. When I think of brunch I like to dress casual but play it up with some stylish flats and a fun cross body. It’s also ideal to layer with spring finally arriving in New York, because the morning can still be brisk but the sun comes out full swing by the afternoon just in time to shop.
Sundays are for oversized sweaters, being outdoors, and bonding with my favorite little dog.
