I would say “I tried to enjoy the last week of summer by going out and being outside,” but who am I kidding? It’s Southern California and we have weather that permits outdoor beer gardens and beach days. Elle was in town on Monday so we met up for dinner. I had a big salad and a margarita. On Wednesday, I went to trivia night … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Last Week of Summer/One Last Tan
At the time of writing this and for the last two weeks, I’ve been fighting off fatigue, a muscle injury that’s causing headaches!, little appetite, and doubts about everything I am. A little here and there is compounding to a very difficult season of my life. However, it can’t be that hard because I’m pushing through it. I’m forcing myself to go out and do … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Can’t Keep Me Down!
I’m still high on last weekend’s camping trip. It was refreshing but not quite restful – we spent all day out hiking and roaming, came back late, and sat by the campfire for dinner, s’mores, games, and laughter!

It has left me with more energy to work with the students as well as energy to have my own fun. 🙂 I had 4 quick meetings scheduled this week and did all the paperwork at a wine bar. I took my cousin Cat to a cookie decorating class at … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Back to Being Social
This is the best year yet. We’re so proud, we all wore our shirts… and joined together in happy hour. Over the weekend, I did a lot of shopping to redo my room. I spent Sunday with my little cousin, starting at Surf Cafea. We went to celebrate the 8 year anniversary of Yoga on the Beach, led by my friend/former co-worker. After more shopping, … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Year 6
Last year, a couple of friends and I took a late summer trip to Temecula wine country. We decided to go again this year and maybe annually. Our first stop was Miramonte Winery for their VIP tour and tasting, which we bought off Groupon. Afterwards, we went to our favorite Peltzer Winery for a tasting. They had $15 (instead of $20) tastings for teachers. We … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Wine & Whiny
