three years.

Today marks three years of marriage to the man I love. When I've taken a still moment this week to reflect on these first few years of being married I've been filled with warmth, gratitude, and a safe sense of belonging. I feel proud of the person he is and how faithfully he's lived out his vows. I feel smiley at the hundreds of occasions that exist where he has made me laugh really freaking hard. I feel excitement for the chapters, homes, adventures, growth, and children (Lord willing) that await us in the years ahead.

I can never quite figure out how to do justice in writing to the swollen sense of happiness I have in our marriage. Simply said, I really love doing life with Finn. I'm deeply thankful for the friendship, trust, grace, and home we've built with each other in these first years. It just keeps getting better and better.

for pedro.

Our dear friend Mckay* has been working on this project for the past year. 

They have raised nearly a third of the funding needed in just 24 hours; I have no doubt they'll exceed their financial goal. If you'd like to be a part of the giving, go here. Just $1.15 buys a chicken! I feel so excited for this man's life and how greatly it will be changed by the goodness and generosity of others. Get on board if you can!

*fun fact: Mckay played the guitar as I walked down the aisle! We love him dearly.

summertime hello.

A few fun things from around the web!

1. What it costs to eat at every 3-star Michelin restaurant in the world.

2. Genius Picnic Bag on my wish list. 

3. Consider this yet another reason I dream of being gal pals with Kristen Wiig. 

4. Can't wait to visit the giants in Mariposa Grove with my parents this weekend!

5. Grown men reenact conversations with a toddler. 

6. Rent in SF is actually the worst

7. Lowland Hum plays at the Garage. Their album Native Air will be available two weeks from today. I already have it and man is it good.

8. I will be playing on this beach in Costa Rica with my handsome husband love in just 2 weeks! 

Hope everyone is having a full and happy summer : )

and the answer is....

How exciting is that?! We are thrilled and can't wait to fly Saturday morning. Finn's co-founder and sales exec will be joining us Sunday and we'll all spend a week there. I can't believe it. Also, tomorrow is my birthday so this surprise adventure came at quite the opportune time. It's funny that the same thing kind of happened last year too. Thanks for the comments and sweet text messages - I'll be sure to share photos!
