Friendship

25 Apr

I know in my last post I talked a little bit about Emily and the friendship we’ve maintain for now *gasp* twelve years.  It seems so weird to put a number to the time and definitely doesn’t feel like that long.  We’ve been through the waves of motion in life and haven’t always lived right next door to each other (even though that’s how it began) but we’ve always been able to pick up right where we left off.  I’ve been really aware of the amazing people in my life lately and I really hope they know how much I appreciate them.  I try to tell them as much as possible and I appreciate them all more than they will probably ever know.  It’s so important to keep the strong, supportive and FUN people in your life.  Fun is contagious and there’s absolutely no reason to stop the good times with the people you care for.

Now onto the good stuff, here’s some more photos that Em and I took while down at the lake over the weekend.  It’s a continuation of sorts from yesterdays post 🙂

Coffee together is always the best.  Tahoe House in Tahoe City is one of the best bakeries and coffee shops in between the North and West shores of Tahoe.

Being silly.  We literally might be the most silly people when we get together.

Naturally, we also bond over music.  Em was making a playlist for our lake lounging.

  I’ll leave you with some words of wisdom I read yesterday.  Another great friend, Chelsea, sent me this link to a bunch of motivational and inspiring quotes and there was one I wanted to share.  Every now and then it’s nice to read something that can empower you at the start of your day.  Happy Wednesday!

We got it all right here

23 Apr

I’ve been a little M.I.A from blogging lately because I’ve had a lot going on with work and travels but I’m going to be the come back kid this week and hopefully get back in gear!  Coachella was naturally one of the most amazing weekends and it was followed up by another amazing weekend in Tahoe.  Above is me and one of my best friends Em just having fun on a pier in Tahoe.  It was the most amazing weather this weekend and Em and her husband, Matt, are some of the best people I know.  We always have such a good time together and I’ll see Em again when we head to the Neon Indian show in SF this week.  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and I look forward to catching up on your blogs as well 🙂

Travel Thursdays – Connecticut

1 Mar

A huge part of going to New York was to see where our dear friend, Fiona, who had moved after falling in love with an East Coast boy.  They met in Las Vegas and while she was living in CA at the time, she moved to Connecticut to be with him.  They are now engaged and getting married this summer!  Shannon and I really wanted to get out there and see them before the big wedding (and they will probably move back to CA after they are married).  What better time to go then now?  So half of our trip was spent in NY and half in Conn.  My favorite part of seeing Connecticut was when they took us to the beach in Milford where I beach combed for so many beautiful shells.  I loved it.

Driving out of the city.

Quaint church in the small town that Fiona teaches in.

I love the stone that this church is made out of!

On our drive to the sea side, we passed the largest manufacturer of military helicopters!  Couldn’t help but think of my brother.

We’ve arrived at the sea side and damn it was so cute.

Beach houses.

Keepers everywhere, they just needed a little washing 🙂

Beach walks.

Texture.

They are so cute 🙂

Down time.

I couldn’t ask for better friends.  They are such a huge part of the key to happiness.

Aw the happy couple and best hosts ever!

Crop planes.

Easy coast lovin’ for an adorable lab.

Weekend warrior trip = success

16 Jan

The trip down to see my bestie was definitely a success and such a fun time!  She took me all around to see all these places I’ve always wanted to see.  I have SO many photos to share this week and some great stories.  I made it back to San Fran this morning and am getting back in the swing of things before I start my work week tomorrow.  I can’t believe it’s “winter” down there.  The weather was between 65-75 the whole time and just gorgeous.  Happy Holiday Monday!

Friendship Friday

One of my best friends Kimmie and I have been friends now for 8 years.  So crazy to put the amount of time in numbers.  Throughout all the ups and downs that life can bring you, we’ve always stayed present in each others lives and have been there for each other through it all.  I was surprised by this three day weekend after the holidays and when I realized that Kimmie was only a flight away, I thought Carpe Diem.  I booked a flight to Southern California where her and I will spend a weekend catching up on life, love and friendship.  She’s a fantastic videographer and we plan lots of nerd photo/video dates 🙂  Next week I will have tons to share on the southern parts of California.  Until then, I’m off again.  Everyone have a WONDERFUL weekend and I hope you all do something that you’ll never forget.  Also, I’ll leave you with some good traveling songs.

 


I’ve always loved this music video.

Enjoy and Happy Friday!

BFD 2011

10 Jun

I work for such a great company that throws amazing concerts and surprise, surprise… I absolutely LOVE music.  I’ve gotten really lucky with my job.  I’ve worked a few BFD’s in my time with Live105 and I can truly say there are so many amazing people that make the event possible.  I love everyone’s shared passion and enthusiasm to really create such a successful event time and time again.  This year was different because I didn’t have to work with the promotions team like I had in the past and it was a very different experience.  The entire promotions team are some of my favorite people ever.  Luckily with my new role, I’ve met even more amazing people.  Here are some photos from BFD 2011!

Here’s Antonio, Chelsea, and me!  Always having fun =)

Fun weekend with good times and great friends

9 Jun


This weekend was a great one for many reasons but mainly because I got to catch up with friends. Why does it seem that the older you get, time flies by so much faster.  I’ve been trying my best lately to not let any opportunity, to spend time with people I care about, slip through the cracks.  My friend Sheena is in town from London and although it’s been a long time since we have hung out, it always picks up like we just saw each other yesterday.  My friend Candace had planned for us to go to a sailor party on the day that I could finally catch a break so here are some photos from the sailor party!

Me, Sheena, Candace, and Sam.  Three great people right here, I love them all.

The party hosts really decked out their apartment to look like the inside of a boat!!

Here’s a close up of one of the windows.  They had the most amazing view of the Golden Gate.

Sam let me borrow this fake shark that was quite the hit at the party and at the street fair!

Me and Sheena.  I really miss this girl!!

Sheena and Nini!

They had a huge open bar with hired bartenders!  They also had a DJ to produce the tunes =)

Sam and Sheena with Nemo 🙂

And then I ran into Lacey at the Union St. Fair!  I also ran into many other friends that were SO great to see.  I didn’t spend much time at the Union St. Fair but there were so many great food vendors and the streets were closed down for attendees to peruse.
