It took me 32 years to finally visit the desert. Turns out it’s only 3 hours from my home in LA and I can’t seem to get enough of it. Heart eyes emoji for days! Here are some of my recent pics from Palm Canyon and Joshua Tree.
I was born in Chicago, but my family moved to California when I was 7, so I don’t remember much. I decided to take a mini-vacation there and I was pleasantly surprised. What a clean, efficient, beautiful city! And everyone we met was SOOO nice. Here a few of my favorite instagram pics.
Aaron and I were working in Portland, and when the gig ended, we managed to squeeze all our stuff, zillions of tools, as well as our friends Cooper and Marcella into the van as we rolled 1000 miles down the OR/CA coast. As I was absorbing the majesty of the sea, I came to 2 conclusions. 1) cool, rocky beaches > flat, tropical beaches (a controversial stance, I know) and 2) If Mermaids were real, they would live in those dark, swirling waters.
Did anyone else see that crazy documentary on Discovery about Mermaids? Totally sensationalistic and trashy, but apparently I’m still thinking about it. You know how some people are really into thinking about aliens or Sasquatch? That’s like me with mermaids. I can’t be the only one. There’s an entire parade dedicated to them. I even remember Splash with amazing clarity. Don’t judge.
Since the new year, I’ve spent fewer than 10 days in my Brooklyn apartment. I stayed in NYC for the holidays, so in January I went back to the Bay Area to see the fam, then got caught up in a whirlwind of activity that included a long stint in LA and shorter stints in Taiwan and Miami. I won’t linger on the details, but in a nutshell, I worked on a few shows with some awesome people, went to the beach a bunch of times (Jen + sun? Weird, I know), and spent too much time and money at Yogurtland. Yum, passion fruit probiotics!!!
I’m back in NYC now. The city is gloriously bright and brisk and as usual, I am crippled by the blooms wreaking havoc on my sinuses. Time for serious spring cleaning which includes tediously editing and archiving photos taken in the last few months. As you can see, I’ve wholeheartedly hopped onto the instagr.am bandwagon. Here are some of my favorites.
