Checking In

posted on: 12.10.2014

In retrospect I realize my last post alluded to some sort of crazy exciting news: pregnancy, a major blog advancement, heck a puppy. But alas, my news is bitter sweet, common, but very big to my little family (aka Erik and I). We are moving. We are leaving our Santa Barbara paradise for new opportunity in Los Angeles, specifically Redondo Beach. As sad as I am to say goodbye to the land of oil slicked seas and 100 year old palm trees, I am thrilled to partake in the next chapter of our lives. I will of course reveal more about this transition as I ease back into regular postings, this is a personal blog after all, but for the time being let's avoid the serious stuff and talk about my hair! My goodness can you believe that's what it looked like when we first moved here? Now for the important question: do I grow it back out or continue with my short (and I must say, easily managed) hair?


  1. Hi! I almost emailed you yesterday to tell you how much I miss your post! So happy to hear about your news- that's very exciting and I can't wait to hear what brought this about as it's clear from your blog and Instagram how much you love Santa Barbara! On the topic of your hair- well I love long hair- but I tell ya- your shorter hair just fits- and it makes me want to cut mine off every time I see you. So, I say keep it shorter. Hope the move goes smoothly and you settle in effortlessly!

  2. Congrats on moving, the pregnancy and everythign else!! I live in Pasadena so we could potentially meet up some time ;)
