On Being Nostalgic

I’m a very nostalgic person. I grow attached to things because of experiences. Never objects, really (besides books + music). When I say things, I usually mean physical locations. I get very sentimental and emotional when I’m at a place that holds…Read more

Spend More Time Alone

Lately I’ve felt so incredibly connected. At all times. To everything. My twitter feed has felt especially negative recently and I’m tired of sitting with groups of people while we all zone out and stare at our iPhones. I’ve found that…Read more

On Friendship

In 4th grade, I came home and told my mom about how one of my ‘best friends’ started hanging out with a group of girls that were notoriously MEAN. This friend became mean too. Calling me a jerk (um, rude) and telling…Read more

Summer So Far

It’s already mid-July and summer so far has been pretty rad. Some of my favorite things: Warm nights in the backyard. Iced coffees and teas. Condensation. Quality time with my sister (+ binge watching The Mindy Project and Nashville). Not…Read more

So Fresh

I love the word FRESH. So fresh, so clean. Fresh to death. Refresh. I love the phrases. I love the word itself. It’s how I feel about this week. A fresh start after 10 days of family time (I went…Read more

Stream of Consciousness

I haven’t had much to say lately. I feel like I’ve been playing catch-up since our New York City trip. So instead, I’m going to share my stream of consciousness in bullet points: It’s hard being an entrepreneur. Sometimes you don’t want…Read more

Four Years

Four years ago today, Adam and I attended a huge party that my parents hosted and danced all night. Sure, a wedding day is swell (and damn expensive) but we don’t hold it to a extremely high standard. When it…Read more

THE year

I started blogging when I was 21. I remember sitting at my desk in my house off campus thinking, “What in the world am I going to talk about? And why would anyone care?” Over five years later and I’m…Read more

Rediscovered

I had a real weekend. No travel. No work. No commitments. I slept in. Watched 4 movies. Shopped til I dropped. Got my hair cut and colored. Had cocktails. Cleaned our entire townhouse. Did laundry. Ate mac n cheese at 3am. Talked…Read more

A Look into 1961

My uncle emailed a bunch of us these photos over the weekend. Photographs of my lolo and lola (which means grandparents in the Philippines) in 1961 right after my dad was born. The two portrait shots are my lola with…Read more

Go Out and Save the World

Last night, I gave in and just let myself cry. As a child and even into my late teens, I always had a hard time empathizing with others. After a tragic event that happened while I was a freshman in…Read more

A Bond

I’m a lot older than my brother and sister. Six years older than my brother. Ten years older than my sister. Despite the years in between – the three of us have a bond. Besides Adam, I feel most comfortable…Read more

Summer in the City

I’ll get straight to the point. I’ve been having a hard time lately. I’ve been struggling with a few things and while I have no real reason to be complaining…I like to be real. I become fearful of being someone on…Read more

On Journaling

I don’t take drastic changes when a new year begins. I ease into the year slowly. I’m a detail-oriented person by nature. I don’t tend to think “big picture.” That’s one of the billion reasons I love my husband so…Read more
