I’ll go ahead and finish posting the photos I took on my camera at Berkeley yesterday. Just a few scattered scenes. South Hall, the Campanile, roses at the base of the Campanile, etc. Continue reading
01 / It rained a bit, but I loved it because it felt like winter at home (read: rain, 55 degrees) and I got to wear my TOMS.
02 / On Saturday I played guitar outside and it was grand.
03 / Meegan and I squeezed in a photo adventure without even trying! More photos soon.

Growing up, Valentine’s Day was never a huge thing in my family, though we definitely recognized it. My mom would make paper valentines for me, my brother, and my dad, and in recent years dad has taken us out of town for a special dinner. We don’t put a ton of stock in the holiday, but it is fun to do have an excuse to do something out of the ordinary for a day.
This year Meegan and I, both being happily and enjoyably single (seriously, it’s great), decided to take the entire day and get out of town in celebration/recognition of Valentine’s Day/Singles Awareness Day. We picked Fayetteville as our destination (the major deciding factors being a particular coffee shop and the weather forecast).
It was a perfect, perfect day. And nothing says Valentine’s Day like cruising down the freeway with the windows down singing Sara Bareilles’ King of Anything at the top of your lungs, right? :)
WARNING: Lots of photos (21) after the jump! Continue reading
I woke up on Saturday morning and realized after breakfast that I didn’t have a single thing planned. So I called Meegan and she came over in the afternoon to eat See’s candy (bless you, Johnson’s), drink warm drinks, and edit photos. We worked on our portfolios together, so Saturday turned out to be productive and fun.

01 / Chai tea for me and coffee for Meegan.
02 / A little time spent with Martin.
03 / Baking on Sunday afternoon is more fun than watching the Super Bowl on Sunday afternoon, and that’s a fact.
Oh, Berkeley. I’ve really come to love this place. Up until a few weeks ago, the extent of my encounters with the town amounted to a quick run by the original Peet’s Coffee on the drive home from the City. Continue reading
Over the last year, I really fell in love with Pinterest. Obviously I use that phrase lightly. What I mean to say is that I started utilizing it a lot more as a place to gather and share inspiration, and inspiring it is.
Even when I have no time to actually compose a blog post (which sadly happens more often than I’d like, being in school) I can usually find a few minutes every day to browse my Pinterest feed. When time is ample, I’m all over the internet, in search of interesting things.
Some of my favorite categories of things to pin currently include food (styling and recipes), coffee photos, places, interiors and exteriors, storefronts, weddings, and parties.
