Reading Brain on Fire, a memoir about a woman who goes from working at a newspaper to being strapped to a bed in a hospital with no recollection of how she got there.

Obsessed with my goodies from Black Friday Sales.

Grateful for the little rain we’ve seen in San Diego.

Wondering about new adventures waiting for me in Boston!

Creating partnerships with brands, bloggers and artists. It’s so nice to connect with creative individuals who all care about local, nutritious food.

Watching Food Chains. This film came out last week, and if you care about local food, then definitely check out this movie which depicts the struggles of farm workers.

Loving the venue Mish and I decided on for the wedding! You’ll just have to wait and see!

Enjoying time spent with friends and family on the East Coast for my engagement party!

Reading Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl. Next up on my list is Amy Poehler’s Yes Please– have you read either of these books? Lena Dunham’s book was laugh out loud funny, and I imagine Yes Please is going to induce some fits of laughter too, I can’t wait.

Obsessed with Instagram. Actually though, I’m happily addicted.

Grateful for such an incredible past 15 months on my fellowship. Things around here are winding down and come January, I head to Boston! Going to miss living with and being inspired by six incredible food justice warriors.

Wondering how I’m going to cope with going from a 75 degree December, to a 32 degree January. Can humans go into hibernation too?

Exploring Northern California and Pie Ranch with my girlfriends. A weekend filled with pie, barn parties, ocean-time and kittens. It was perfect. Also, Idyllwild Camping Grounds this weekend. Excited for hiking, campfires, starry nights and time away from computer screens.

Creating an awesome food-photography workshop! Details coming soon!

Watching Gilmore Girls. Can’t. Stop.

Loving my new blog! The amazing logo and illustrations were created by the sweet and talented Maggie Waller, of Type and Title. Homegirl knows her stuff. If you need branding, wedding design, calligraphy – I can’t recommend her enough! Seriously, go check out her website!

september in review

I can’t believe it’s already October you guys. September was a whirlwind of a month, I guess this should be expected with the wrapping up of summer, a slew of Jewish holidays and lots of exciting plans in the works.

I got this idea from Maggie over at Type and Title, and it was actually a really fun practice of taking a look at what’s been going on with myself. So, here we go:

Starting to study for exams and write my graduate school application. Three years out of school and it seems I’m a bit rusty at this! Excited what will come at the end of this long process.

Enjoying HONY’s worldwide travels, especially the photos from Jerusalem. Definitely making me nostalgic for my year spent living in that wonderful, crazy place.

Reading An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace by Tamar Adler. Home girl knows her way around a kitchen, how to save everything and cook in such a beautiful and holistic way. This book is really worth a read, I highly recommend it!

Obsessed with the candle I made at Mr. B’s Luminaries. I combined lavender, bergamot and eucalyptus essential oils for a calm and refreshing candle that burns nightly on my bedside table. So good.

Grateful to have spent some time this month in my favorite city, San Francisco. I went up for a couple days to for the Jewish new year and got to see my fiancé (that’s almost a normal sentence for me), his family and some dear friends. Love you, Bay Area.

Wondering how the next couple weeks will play out- I have so many plans this month that I’m getting a bit overwhelmed! [think: wedding planning, engagement party and lots of travel!]

Watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix starting from Season One. All the fashion faux pas and hurried conversation on that show make for the perfect unwinding after a long day of work. My roommate and I may be addicted. Are you watching?

Loving my new blog theme from Blogzilla! We’re slowly making some changes around here to better fit the look and feel I’d love for this blog. If you’re looking to spruce up your own blog, check out Molly and Natalie’s Etsy site here.
