Salt & Straw

January 2, 2018

As the new year rolls around and my new, big adventure is soon coming up, I’ve decided to add to my love of documenting my random outings by attempting to actively bring Craig (aka my Nikon D5000), rather than relying on just my phone. So, here’s to documenting my last few months in San Diego!

… & I guess it’s characteristic of me to start off this new venture by visiting the newly opened Salt & Straw ice cream shop, where we ate too much of their apple brandy & pecan pie, gingerbread cookie dough, caramelized grapefruit eggnog, and butter roasted chestnut on two waffle cones.

Happiness is: November

   Happiness is: coming home after an amazing, live performance of A Prairie Home Companion and having coffee + an Eclipse cupcake.

Happiness is: taking my handmade faux gingerbread ornaments out from storage to decorate the tree & having my living room smell like the holidays.

Happiness is: reading in the comfort of my new duvet & duvet cover.

It’s been a while since I’ve written a “happiness is” post, but that’s because it’s been quite hectic these past few weeks due to my bout with the flu amongst other things (which I hope to share soon!). I’m hoping for things to settle down before I resume.

With that being said, the frequency of those posts may change from weekly to once every two or so weeks, but we shall see. (:
