Copious Girabaldi at La Jolla Cove

 

Melissa and I went snorkeling in La Jolla Cove to see our state fish, the fabulous Girabaldi. I brought my go pro. The cove was lousy with Girabaldi. Not ones to be satisfied so easily, Melissa promptly decided it was a disappointment that we did not see any leopard sharks.

We went to lunch at Burger Lounge afterwards, and then hung out at the benefit bar.

Scripps Birch Aquarium and La Jolla Cove





It was so much fun visiting the Scripps Birch Aquarium La Jolla today. Alex had a hankering for it and I found it to be a relaxing contemplative past time. I had a bit of trouble getting the autofocus to work through the glass, but I think one or two worked out nicely.

Tea for two

 I invited my neighbor over to my house for a friendly chat monday morning. I prepared tea for two for the occasion and I think the table came out beautifully.

Right Here, Right Now




"I am in the business of making future nostalgia"
It was mid afternoon at Karl Strauss brewery on day two of my weeklong vacation when I said the best thing I've ever said while casually imbibing.

Maid of Honor / Claires Wedding Weekend




I spent a good portion of last week gardening and thinking about my Maid of Honor toast for Claires Wedding. I ended up practicing the speech while pacing my apartment about 20 times. I gardened for a solid 3 hours on friday, spending 4 hours of it practicing my toast, and 5 of it attending and checking into Claires hotel room to spend the night before her wedding with her.

Birthday Weekend


Things have been pretty hectic since we bought our first home a scant 3 weeks ago. In a normal quiet year I would declare May my birthday month and spend the whole length fussed and pampered. We spent the long memorial day weekend working on the house, pursuing memorial day sales, and having friends over for board games and warm wishes.

Our Day at the Temecula Wine and Balloon festival 2016



Alex and I met our favorite Orange County friends at the Temecula Wine and Balloon festival this year. It was too much fun, really, too much.
