One of my favorite things about living near such an amazing city is being able to experience and search through every nook and cranny that this place has to offer. It is a plus that I am not knocking this summer and have triple the amount of time to learn about all of these new places and things. (shout out to the best husband in the world for working his dang tail off). I have the best group of friends too, so that's a plus that I get to do all of the fun things with them.

The past few weeks we have gone to the beautiful city of Berkeley, Ca, visited Fisherman's Wharf (duh) and I had the sweetest birthday celebration and had all of my sweet people celebrate with me. I visited home for a quick minute for a friends wedding and to get some stuff done on our house which was a fun little break.

Some things:
- Great friends are the best. I think that now that as I am getting older I have realized that more and more. They are needed no matter how much we think we can do it on our own. There are sweet souls that are put into your life for a reason, and we need to do all that we can to make sure they stay there. I am surrounded by the best of the best these days and it makes me remember how lucky I have been to have experienced hard times with people because it just makes me the most grateful when I realize that I have the most genuine, loving, and caring folks to be consumed with.

- When you build a house you get really excited about big holes in the ground, dirt, wood, and cement. They are the best things really.

- Bach yesterday was already a let down and I'm not even sad that I'm not watching it tonight. These feelings will probably come and go as the season continues though. What's new.

- I have an obsession with good drinks. If it's fruity and good, send it my way please.

- Cooking can be fun when you want it to be. (and please let me give a shout out to myself and steve for not eating out everyday like we have been the past year. This is a serious accomplishment people)

That's all for now I guess.

Here's Oakland and Berkeley with our besties. They really are great. And babies are fun too.
