Thrift Shops + Pho
So sorry for the abandonment of Peace-Nopales over the last couple of days, since I didn’t go back to the office on Monday I pretty much slipped into a funny little condition of pack, facebook, clean, eat in between the scheduled times of fun with friends in LA that I with dearly miss. I spent Sunday with my favorite Colombian and amazing friend Sofi, we strolled through her favorite...
I will miss / but not this 2/5

One more week and Ernesto, The Monster and I pack up our life in Los Angeles and hit pedel for the 5 hour drive to Phoenix, Arizona. It is something that has been a year or so in the making and just a matter of both of us agreeing to...

All Packed, Maine I'll see you in the morning!
To keep myself from excessively packing for my 1-week trip to Maine, I created a list and tried to stick with it (kinda). This has become a regular thing for me to red-eye it when traveling across the country.
