Reflections on 3 years


D and I recently celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary. It was exciting! We made it! 3 years! But as with any milestone a good time to reflect.

Already falling behind


So, I haven't blogged as much as I had wanted. I feel like I am already falling a bit behind. I have an excuse: we were traveling the last week and along with trying to fit everything into the trip I was also trying to keep up with my work day. So I was busy. But I know I will always be busy. Sometimes keeping commitments can be hard.

My baby eats better than I do


The Pepper is 7 months old now, so for the past few months we've been introducing solid foods. It was a slow start but she's really embraced all sorts of foods now and seems to love almost anything we give her.

Getting comfortable


I work at home so pajamas are a big part of my life. I've always liked being comfortable and believe in wearing pajamas when at home.

Museums have the best gifts


When I was living in Berkeley my favorite place to buy Christmas gifts was the SFMoMA gift shop. Now that the holidays are fast approaching I found two things from the MoMA Store that I want.

Oddly fascinated and intrigured


It may seem strange to have my second blog post ever to be about pictures of people in the throes of ecstasy. But I can't help it. I love these.

Hello world


I am not a writer; never have been. I've always hated journaling. But, I love reading blogs. And inspired by this post, I've decided that a blog may be my venue for putting myself out there and connecting to the wider world.

The reasons I am starting this blog are:
  • Connection: My life is typical. I have a family. I work full-time. I struggle to balance things. I find great joy in the people in my life. I enjoy art, design, fashion. There are many ways that I am like many of you out there. But, my life is also unique. My specific job, my specific family, where I live, my personal taste and style. I look forward to connecting to the world in the things we have in common, and discussing the things we don't.
  • Recommendations: I have relied on the blogs I love for recommendations. I even based my baby registry on them! There are so many things out there these days it's hard to know about all of them or sift through them all to find the things you need. If I can save someone a little time by recommending a car seat or a baby carrier, I feel I've done the world some good.
  • Intention: I want to lead an intentional life. And chronicling it here will make me aware of the things I do, think, care about, notice, have interest in. Having never had a way of documenting these things before I'm excited to see what this process will bring, and what I'll learn from it.
My fears around starting this blog are that I won't be committed enough to it. That it will be hard to find the time. And nothing is worse then an out-of-date blog. But, I am committed. I will make the time. I will face these fears.

And the title for my first post was not a coincidence. Being in the tech field I thought it would be a fitting way to start things off.

So, hello world!
