happy monday! hope you had an amazing weekend. i NEEDED this weekend to regroup and re-energize before the work week. some weekend highlights included spending time with melissa  in town for the half marathon, enjoying a big friends dinner, sleeping in!!!, pastries from my fave b. patisserie, a surprise massage appointment {best boyfriend ever!}, catching the sunset by the ocean, cooking dinner and being lazy saturday night, going to church, picnic-ing in the park, seeing my roomie from college, britton.

here’s a few cool things i’ve been reading lately that i wanted to share! also, this image? my MANTRA today. xo!

“why work doesn’t happen at work” and ways to improve the office {hint: no meetings!}

even though we don’t have real fall here in SF, i’ve loved pinning {and more pinning…} to my fall board on pinterest!

being a part of starting thread {fashion} magazine in college was one of the coolest things i’ve ever done. it’s always awesome to flip through new issues, like this one! nice work, threadies!

farewell, love letter to san francisco — love this video of my city!
