About Me

Twenty something human resources professional by day, J Crew addict and amateur photographer by night. Married since August 11, 2012, and can't get enough of Rosie the cat, Frankie and Ollie the chinchillas, all things San Francisco, good food, cold beer, and has recently come down with an extreme case of wanderlust and constantly wanting to plan the next trip.

  1. Ooh, I love reading a 30 before 30 list... I'm almost done with mine (but already turned 30 a couple of months ago, whoops) but you make me want to add to it with some of these fun (and self-bettering!) ideas. Also, you should be able to cross of that last one: I can tell you that turning 30 is great :) It's the best excuse to do lots of fun celebrations!
