    Jordan and I hit the road for 10ish days last month on the bikes and had just…the loveliest time. Truly an opportunity to live in the moment every day for a little while and explore the vastness outside our regular lives.

    We finally did it – we got chicks! We picked up the little ladies from our neighborhood nursery – City Farmers. They had three varieties available, Barred Rock, Speckled Sussex, and Americana. We attempted to get one of each variety – but the Sussex and Americana look very similar at this age so we won’t […]

  • social exodus

    A few months ago – maybe around Halloween – I started questioning my use of social media. I’d spend hours hunched over the tiny screen, scrolling Instagram mindlessly. I didn’t like it. It hurt my neck. It hurt my soul. I started to try and catch myself and ask what I was trying to achieve […]

He’s been trying to learn Tagolog, and he’s been learning about/watching the careers of some local Filipino chefs. Recently – he took an interest in the doings of one local chef – Phillip Esteban – […]

  • chocolate x-mas eve

    My friend Barbarella really focused on making gourmet chocolate bonbons as her Covid hobby. She started out making hot chocolate bombs, and something about working with chocolate as the medium caught her and now she makes tiny, delicious works of art. She invited me over several months ago – before she was able to take […]
