threefromtheweekend04Let the countdown begin! Three days until Christmas, everyone! I’m listening to Christmas music next to the Christmas tree as I type this post, and it makes me so happy :)

Besides wrapping a couple of presents over the weekend, here’s some other stuff that happened…

sunday in the city

 dolores park | maci brittSundays in the city are one of my most favorite things ever. You probably know this if you’ve read my blog for any length of time, and you certainly know this if we know each other in person. Sundays + SF… I love it. Add to that equation sunshine, a best friend, and a whole day to do whatever we want? PERFECTNESS. Continue reading

berkeley snapshots no. 01

 As much as the idea of real-time blogging appeals to me, we just don’t get along very well. That’s what Instagram is for… though even with that I’ve been known to employ the occasional #latergram. While I was in Berkeley recently, I would’ve liked to have composed a neat post of the day’s events each day before bed, but when faced with the option of blogging or baking random muffins because they sound good at 8:30pm, I chose baking.

I’ve been following along with Stephanie Court’s photography project, Twosday, for a while now. Now that I’ve finally jumped in, I hope to participate more in future weeks!

Visit Stephanie’s blog to read the simple guidelines and themes, grab your camera, and link-up! :)


P.S. These photos are from this recent ice cream post on my food blog.

ice cream shops you should know about

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 presetIce cream is one of my favorite things. I eat it year-round and consider it appropriate always, even in colder months. My philosophy? Some months are best for eating ice cream outside, and other months are best for eating ice cream inside.

This month has been so full that I feel sort of lost when it comes to relaying events here on my blog. I’ve been looking for themes to break posts into, and one emerged very quickly… ice cream. Here are three places I love that you should know about (and visit if you have the chance).

As an added plus, all three of these shops use fresh, local, and organic ingredients to make their ice creams! Continue reading
