We had New Years' Eve brunch down by the water with my friend Micah after church.
I had fish & chips which shouldn't be a surprise. This is such a nostalgic meal for me. It's also delicious.
We stopped off in the Presidio on our way out of the city. Sometimes I just like to come walk on the trails that run along the coast.
Mount Tam feels like another planet. The heaviness of the fog and the complete silence is almost disorienting. I love it up here.
Nice tile in the bathroom at El Techo.
The day I turned 24 was the first day I ever walked across the Golden Gate. It's a lot safer to take photos while walking as opposed to driving, you know.
I took the day after New Year's Day off to extend the weekend a bit and just do stuff around town/at home that I wouldn't normally be able to do on a weekday. Things like: go to the flea market with my mom!
Things like: bake cookies at lunchtime!
Things like: meet my BFFNMHFA and her daughter for coffee!
Back to work with fresh flowers.
Fresh flowers for my fresh new Heath Ceramics vase (thanks, mom & dad!) that I love so much!
Haven't decided if the flowers should sit on the shelf or on my desk, but I'm liking them on the shelf right now...
Gloomy Friday afternoon coffee shop scene. (Also, this was my first cappuccino of the week since Sunday and it was glorious.)
Talked my brother into going back to the coffee shop after we met our parents, grandparents, aunt and uncle for dinner. I wanted another capp and convinced him that he wanted an iced mocha.
Light on the wall at a baby shower.
Not pictured: tacos tacos tacos.
And that's a wrap on the first week of 2018!
[New year, new blog post series! I'm excited for this. The goal is to find a home for the many photos I take every week and to document my daily life over the course of a year. It's not always perfect, or beautiful, or even interesting per say, but it's mine and I find a lot of joy in capturing all of it. At the end of 2018, I know I'll love to scroll back through this series. If you're here and reading this, I hope you get some enjoyment/inspiration from following along. There's lots of beauty to be found in the stuff of our everyday lives. Let's keep our eyes wide. ✌]
