An Apple A Day

This calendar is SUCH a cute idea! Sadly, the apples I usually eat are from my father's trees or from other local growers who don't use stickers. Buy it here on Etsy.

Oakland Love

My friend Leah passed on this awesome Coolhunting video guide to Oakland. It's short but I think it manages to capture the spirit of the city really well, highlighting some of my favorite places and people in just a few minutes. Check it out!

I have so much to be thankful for this year. I can't believe how quickly 2009 has flown by- my birthday's in just a month! Many people are afraid to get older, but I really feel that every year that I am alive, my life just gets better and better. I don't think I have ever been as happy as I am right now, and I know I wouldn't feel that way if I wasn't lucky enough to have my amazing family and friends in my life. I can't begin to describe how grateful I am for them. I am also really grateful to be able to spend my time doing what I love, in a wonderful home, with Seymour- the best dog on Earth-by my side. I love living here in the beautiful Bay Area, and being able to take advantage of everything it has to offer. So yeah, I'm pretty grateful for just about everything and everyone in my life for getting me here. If you're reading this, thank you! Have a wonderful holiday.
