Easy Sundays

Hi guys,

As you know I live in the amazing city of San Francisco, CA. From the diverse people and food, to the history engulfing every inch of the city, it’s easy to say I LOVE WHERE I LIVE.

Sunday’s in our house are used for meal prepping as well as errand running and taking it easy. Our day ALWAYS starts off at Equinox- our gym. From there we get any errands out of the way and this week we made a couple must see stops around North Beach (aka Little Italy)

We enjoy the way Europeans live, with a slower pace in their life. We stopped at Cafe Trieste, in the heart of Little Italy for an afternoon coffee. We just sat and talked… no technology. And we didn’t drink the coffee to just drink it. We enjoyed each other’s company, and that is something that I think many relationships lack. Everyone gets so caught up in the moment that they forget why we all fell in love in the first place.

We also took a detour to Candlelight Books. One of my favorite books is Inferno by Dante and at the entrance to the store they have a quote that says, “Abandon all despair, Ye who enter here” which I thought to be quite charming especially if you are familiar with the actual quote from Inferno.

If you make your Sunday’s fun instead of dreading Monday, life gets a lot more interesting. Stay tuned for my post tomorrow about meal preppy- I know super adulty.

Wishing you all happiness,

Tay

Growing Together- Shelf Building Edition

Hi guys!

This morning, after an awesome cycling class at our gym, the boy and I decided it was time to tackle that book shelf that has been laying on our living room floor. We had bought an electric screw driver because the assembly for a Target product was highly intensive.

The drill didn’t work. So it was full on manual labor, and let me tell you there were a lot of screws.

I’ve seen my parents assemble furniture together, and it almost always ends in an argument. I was worried that this would be a test of our relationship, and I was right. But instead of one of us storming off when we hit a road block, we managed to work really well as a team and trouble shoot the problem until we had that entire thing built. It was really fun to accomplish something together, especially since it was something going in OUR new home.

Check out some photos of our endeavors below!

Wishing you all the best,

Moving In With Your Best Friend

Today I moved in with my best friend / boyfriend of four years. We did long distance all of college- yea it was horrible. But now, we just moved into our first apartment and I honestly haven’t been happier in the longest time.

I think people who haven’t been in long distance relationships under estimate how amazing it is just to wake up next to your person or have them help you build a book shelf (aka what I’m currently not helping him do).

I’ll keep you guys all updated on what types of shenanigans we get into… oh and how it is living with a boy! Hahaha

Wishing you all the best,
