If you like Beer, look on.

Merry Early Christmas from Anchor Steam!!IMG_4239 A few weeks I go I was able to Steward a home brewing event at Anchor Steam. IMG_4240

Drink a steam with J.C.?! Could be Jesus Christ or me… IMG_4242 A room full of hops could there be anything more fragrant and delicious?!IMG_4248 IMG_4251 A beautiful fall afternoon in the East Bay.IMG_4271 I sometimes forget how amazing this city is. When I am lucky enough to be a passenger and not a driver I can take wonky pictures like this. That do little justice to the beautiful view, but make me happy and thankful all the same.IMG_4306 Went to a Girls Pint Out event at Harmonic in dogpatch/portola last week. They have done a really nice job with the beers they brew.  They were crafted beautifully with robust flavors that have led me to want to go back again and soon! We had a large group and they were so attentive. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Parking is easy, get a pizza near by and enjoy.IMG_4309 We were able to take a tour!IMG_4310 IMG_4311 IMG_4312Finally got to go to go to Mikkeller Bar. Their food and beers are on point. We had the kale salad and fries. A perfect balance of healthy and not so healthy.

These photos make it look like I drink beer a lot… What can I say? It is true.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

As the nights get longer and colder I am dreaming of making these chili recipes.

Family lives in Caravan and the results are positive.

Another family ( of six )  in a renovated bus!

Small towns that are affordable… interesting, but they are probably affordable for a reason.

This list of healthiest companies to work for in the US, pretty cool to take a look at what companies are doing.

FALLin’ in love

I love summer but there is something about the crisp fall air that I love! Here in the Bay Area it is still feeling like summer but in honor of the first official day of FALL I wanted to share some of my top clothing pics this Autumn.
My key style points this Fall:
– Fringe
– Army Green
– Burnt Oranges and Red
– Southwestern prints
– equal combos of tight and slouchy
I hope you are looking forward to the new season and the fun wardrobe changes we get to experience!

“I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne

As nights start to get longer I am trying to take advantage of the little slivers of day where I can enjoy the sun.

Sitting in the sand, basking in the autumn sun I feel so happy to be alive and I want this feeling to last forever.

First Run of November

Why I Love November and hate it

Days are shorter and colder

Runs in the twilight

Hot Tea

Cozy Sweaters

Roasting my buns by the fireplace

and days like yesterday when the sun is shinning but the air is crispy and falley.

So in love with it.

Happy Halloween!

Even if you don’t celebrate this holiday I hope you are celebrating life.  Enjoying the changing of the seasons.  The new and the old.  The ability for all of us to take enjoyment from one another.  The chance to act like a kid once in awhile no matter what your age is.

Even if you don’t believe in dressing up or getting candy today.  Trust that you are alive, that you can read this, that you can celebrate living and all that living in this crazy world entails.

Enjoy today – whatever that means for you!
