Brian left town yesterday for his week of backpacking through the woods. I was sad to see him go but he’s sooooo excited to drop off the grid for a few days, camp, hike and take pictures with his best buds from college. I realized Monday night as he packed up his bag (a very heavy and large backpack that he has to carry for 5 miles a day…sounds awful, right?) that since moving in together last year, I had never stayed in our place alone- it’s usually me packing up and leaving for trips! But this time, I’m the one getting left. I like this less. I went out for dinner last night and when I got home I walked in the door to silence. I missed his voice excitedly saying “honey!!!”, followed by a hug. I’m so accustomed to having him around. He’s my partner in crime and my best friend. The silence won’t last long though. My cousin Brooke and her two kids, ages 1 and 8, are coming to visit me from up north tonight. It should be a fun 5 days of hanging with some of my favorite humans. On the agenda- the beach, walks, shopping, eating and last, but not least, a day at Disneyland. I haven’t been to Disneyland in ages and I am looking forward to riding Peter Pan (my favorite as a kid) and to eating a funnel cake (maybe two). I guess going to Disneyland is kinda like an artist date. I won’t be alone, but it’s a good exercise in letting my inner kid out to play! Lots of pictures to come…
I am a writer, blogger and host living in Los Angeles, CA with my husband Brian and French Bulldog Frank.
I started this blog in 2011 on the eve of my 29th birthday because I was feeling frustrated with the state of my life. In an inspired moment I compiled a list of 10 goals to accomplish in the 365 days leading up to my 30th birthday. Goals that I thought would bring me closer to the life I wanted-- and with that, 365 til 30 was born. That year was an incredible journey and truly changed my life. Since then, the blog has grown to include everything that happens after turning 30.
