san francisco reflections: one year later

san francisco reflections: one year later

I had a few days last week where I felt a little off and kind of sad and realized…it’s been just about one year since we left San Francisco. So weird. Moving was one of the hardest decisions we’ve made, both individually and as a couple/family.  There’s been a lot of really good things that have come out of our move to Nashville, but it’s also been a lot of hard stuff to process through. đź’› Change can be really challenging and painful, but also really good and rewarding, all at the same time. We made the decision to move to Nashville in July 2018, […]

our san francisco closet nursery & small space living with baby tips

I’ve been thinking a lot about our old apartment and in particular, Lucy’s teeny tiny closet nursery. I realized I never shared photos of it on here! Our small SF apartment  and closet nursery were featured on Glitter Guide and The Everymom, but I want to make sure they are documented on my own little corner of the Internet, too. ✨ STARTING WITH A BLANK CANVAS: Our apartment in San Francisco was 650ish feet, and the living room and bedroom were connected by pretty French doors that we usually kept open. One bonus to the very small space was that the apartment had two generously sized […]

farewell, san francisco & personal reflections

farewell, san francisco & personal reflections

Eeep! We only have a couple days left in San Francisco and the past few weeks have felt like quite the whirlwind. While I’m excited to do something new, to live somewhere different, to have a new pace of life, it’s so so so hard to leave San Francisco. I’m going to try to capture it all in this blog post, but truly don’t think I have all the words for the jumble of emotions I have about this place. I also couldn’t even begin to choose photos to perfectly capture my time here (hello, hundreds of Instagram photos / Facebook albums and thousands of […]

wifi & work spots in san francisco

i recently shared that i went out on my own to launch my own company, lucky collective. it’s been about six weeks or so working by myself, and it’s already learned a lot about myself, both personally and professionally. one of the most challenging things has been being alone all day, as i’m extroverted and feed off the energy of other people. instead of working from my apartment all day, i try to switch it up and work from a coffee shop or cafe in either the morning or afternoon. i’m always on the lookout for good spots with wifi so thought i would share my go-to places to work.

I recently went to an event, hosted by Inforum at the Commonwealth Club, that I want to share about! Inforum produces Bay Area events, where you can listen to and meet “local celebrities” in entertainment, tech, pop culture, politics, etc. The event I went to was a cocktail reception and Q&A with the founders of Future Bars, the guys behind Bourbon and Branch and other popular Bay Area cocktail bars. It was super interesting to hear the stories about how they got started, what the purpose of their bars is all about and more. My *favorite* part (other than sipping their yummy cocktails!) was hearing about how they […]

my san francisco bridal shower!

my san francisco bridal shower!

i have the best friends ever. a few weeks ago, they threw me a super fun, beautiful bridal shower at one of my favorite places in the city, ampersand. ampersand is an adorable flower shop in the mission {which you’ve likely seen me post pics of, like here & here…}. the shower was perfectly timed because all three of my sisters were in town visiting! it was seriously one of the most fun and special nights ever, having all of these people together celebrating. ampersand is such a beautiful space that decorations aren’t necessary, but the girls ordered these gold YAY balloons to make the space […]
