I love coffee. More specifically, I love lattes. Like a lot. My college pastime was visiting new coffee shops with friends and I tried to keep that up once I moved back to the suburbs, but there just weren’t enough shops to explore. Sacramento doesn’t have that problem. There are so many coffee shops that last week, in anticipation for National Coffee Day (the best of the made up holidays if you ask me), I decided to sip my way through my neighborhood. I went to four shops within walking distance from my apartment and got to enjoy the different ambiances and espressos of these local gems.Read More
Since San Diego is such a big city (and county, really), consider this a tiny, mini-guide, I'm only covering the North Park, Liberty Station and Point Loma neighborhoods so it goes without saying that this by no means comprehensive.

There are so many that I could probably spend an entire long weekend sitting in coffee shops and still not cover everything. If I missed out on a great spot, let me know! I plan to make it down to San Diego more than once every two years and I’d love recommendations!Read More
I've always had a thing for San Francisco. It was my all time favorite city as a kid and teenager. Brandon and I used to drive out to Ocean Beach for our dating anniversary every year before we started our newest Redwoods tradition. I ditched school with a friend my senior year of high school to go prom dress shopping with my mom in the city. I have so many really great memories of playing tourist in San Francisco but recently all of my trips into the city had lasted for only a few hours. I guess it's no surprise that I was excited get to explore the city for a little while longer this time!Read More
