    City Girl Does Cancún

    It all started with a letter… …and continues with a beautiful and very memorable wedding on the beach of Cancún. Not, not my love story. HAHA! But the dreamiest of stories of the Wench meeting, falling in love and marrying Hotlanta in a whirlwind long-ish weekend in Mexico surrounded by love, family, and friends. I absolutely love the idea of a destination wedding. I love even more when friends decide that is how their wedding will go down. #LivinLaVidaThornton! We’ve been anticipating this trip for over a year and the calendar date finally met reality. There was definitely a little somewhat last minute rearranging I had to do since my plus…

    City Girl Hikes: Alamere Falls – Bolinas, CA

    This City girl seeks nature from time to time! Since we haven’t done a hike since last summer AND we finally had a free weekend with nothing on the calendar, I told J we were hiking! HAHA!

What was your Rose & Thorn? Because I am feeling completely uninspired today and I don’t want to bog you down with some verbal nonsense, I will post pictures from my beach weekend and keep the literary genius to a minimum 😉 FRIDAY Got my girl…

    Thinking out Loud – Fo(u)r Real…

    Though she be but little, she is fierce… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. And by “she” I am referring to my post. Short and sweet, my friends! Especially since last weeks was fairly wordy! 1. November Project – I know I write about this a lot, but I’m proud to be a part of it! Since we are always trying to increase our attendees, we thought we’d change up our meeting location. However, along with this change came a huge traffic issue in Sacramento. They are doing huge construction on one of the busiest connectors on the freeway. So, no matter where we host NP SMF, getting there could be…
