I love the Bay Area and Sonoma County so much. I love it so much that every time a destination couple or even a friend comes here I immediately send them a list of 30 things they need to do and the longest list ever for places to eat at. That is when I got […]

I first went to Joshua Tree 6 years ago and fell in love with how quiet & peaceful it is. There is not much there and that is part of the appeal to it. I have grown to love the natural colors there, adorable airbnb’s and desert charm. I also love that is close to […]

My mom grew up right next to Mendocino. We grew up visiting and reliving the beauty of Mendocino county. It is the reason why I started to fall in love with shooting here and why I wanted to write this guide in the first place so people not only visit Mendocino, but fall in love […]

We first celebrated our little man at the local blueberry farm: Duckworth Blueberry Farm. It was a simple way to start the day with the three of us and it was beautiful. The Party: Space themed and filled with people we love.

This year has been one crazy wild beautiful ride. Starting from his birth- we flew out of state on a couple hours notice of his birth. Then we road all the way up the I5 with a 3 day year old baby back home. During his first year of life we experienced power outages, evacuations […]

I am a foodie and a home chef in training so I partnered with one amazing chef & friend, Mimo, to create how to cook a 3 course restaurant worthy meal at home. Here is her story and her recipes. “Growing up in a small village in Ethiopia, I was always around fresh farm produce. […]

Another year another valentines day. I feel like we all have a love hate relationship with this holiday. Who doesn’t love an excuse to indulge on chocolates, cards, flowers, and jewelry. But again why is everything so expensive around this holiday? A dozen roses at the grocery store cost almost as much as the downpayment […]
