Travel Theme: Graceful

Puppy love is so graceful.


New friends at the Paws For Pink 5K at San Diego’s Liberty Station.
#kvpweekend Run puppy run! #PawsFurPink 5K at Liberty Station in #SanDiego. My first 5K race! 😊🐶🐾
It was our first 5K and we had a blast.
Good times! Canine chaos at the starting line. #PawsFurPink
It was a lovely way to celebrate our move to San Diego last month.

Blackout Curtains

I used to wake up in darkness. I spent more than eight years getting out of bed with blackout curtains draped over our bedroom windows.

They were necessary. They helped me fall asleep for my graveyard shifts. Just like 32 oz. of coffee helped me jumpstart my brain before sunrise.

This morning, I watched sunlight peeping thru the blinds. I listened to my dog snoring on my knee. I spotted my husband buried under the covers.

My body has shifted. I’m sleeping past sunrise.

Sun Salutations
I worked on my yoga practice in our new backyard this morning.

Bloom

I love how these flowers blossom next to the Pacific. On my birthday weekend, I enjoyed the salty sea air, mild San Diego sun and my hanging out with my family.

Driving more than 1400 miles

When you get older, leave your ordinary life behind and hit the open road.

I’m trying to get used to the fact that I’m officially in my 30s: married, working, domesticated and totally reliable. We have a good life in Cow Town and we have stable jobs. After a few bumps in the road, I am happy to be working as a journalist.

So when May rolled around and we stared at the reality of turning a year older, we decided to celebrate with a couple of weekend getaways.

In fact, it took us two weekends and 1,000+ miles on my hubby’s Corolla to celebrate our birthdays in May.

At the beginning of the month, we took advantage of my 3-day weekend (a prelude to my 10-day work week in the newsroom) and drove to Lake Tahoe. We left the chains behind and looked forward to hiking on the cliffs next to the lake, all under sunny skies.
