Samah and Ahmed met in Japan and they say it was truly love at first sight. Both Samah and Ahmed attended grad school at UCLA, and were literally in the same building, but their paths never crossed until they were thousands of miles away. How crazy is that?!
They had their ceremony down in LA and then opted to host an intimate dinner celebration at Berkeley City Club. It’s no secret that this is one of my absolute favorite venues. Not only is BCC rich in history and designed by California’s first licensed female architect (Julia Morgan) but every inch is stunning. Read More
Our fur baby just turned two! Or 24 months if I wanted to be one of those moms…
How did we get here so fast? You are the king of head tilts and judgmental looks, my little bear. You’ve come a long way from eating our socks and running away from your own projectile vomit. You’re hands down the best (and only) thing we’ve bought off Craigslist that instantly made us parents. Read More
Do you ever look at two people hopelessly in love and feel… repulsed?
That’s how I sometimes feel as a person in love. It’s ten times worse when you’re the lonely person out of love. I’ve been there, too.
A few weeks ago on a five-hour flight, I sat next to a man in his fifties with pretentious being his main personality trait. Just some foreword: I despise airplane conversation. Not a fan. It’s like a never-ending elevator ride. I hate it so much that sometimes when my phone dies, I keep my headphones in and occasionally bop my head to keep up the elusion that I’m listening to music.

This past weekend Broc and I decided to head up to Tahoe with one of his best friends, Brandon, and his beautiful fiancee, Lexie. We took our little pup, Loki, so he could experience his first snow... and snow is what we got!
We went straight to Boreal Mountain for their $15 college student Friday's (my 2011 ID from my one semester is still going strong - heck yeah!) and drove straight into a winter wonderland. Loki got out of the car and preceded to go absolutely nuts digging and eating the snow which was pretty adorable. I like to think that as a husky he's had daily dreams of running across big, snowy plains and all his dreams were suddenly coming true when his four little paws hit that white fluff. Read More
One year. one year of falling so, so in love with you.
Broc, you're the butter to my coffee, the Kanye to my Kanye, the avocado to my breakfast, lunch, & dinner. you make me want to do more, to be more. and for that, i love ya. that day when you flipped that coin and decided to come with me to bali was such a pivotal moment in our lives and we had no idea. my soul will forever be aligned with yours.

This year we decided to spend NYE with some of Broc's friends in Discovery Bay. To kick off the night we enjoyed a delicious salmon meal cooked by my boo (round 2 after Loki ate the first batch off the counter). We then had teeny tiramisu cups for dessert that were absolutely delicious and I was satisfied to call it a night at 8pm. But party we must. Read More
