Farmer’s Markets and Men

Hi Friends!

Ocean Beach snackies

I am so happy to be back writing another blog from San Diego. I am currently on the dog beach in Ocean Beach, without a dog, with packed snacks, watching all of my babies run around and play while eating freeze-dried raspberries I paid $14 for on Amazon. If that is not bliss, I surely do not know what is.

I had slight worry writing this blog, because I wasn’t sure how much of an update to provide. A LOT has changed since we last spoke, and I believe honesty is just the best policy—but I also have to have some sort of life outside of social media. Right? Maybe not. Who cares, lol.

Just know I am about to dish all things I feel comfortable sharing, but to expect more next week after my life continues to unfold.

First things first, I am still in my beautiful Furnished Finder home, and so far I absolutely love San Diego. I haven’t made many friends yet, but I have had some really cool experiences. I met up with some high school friends, I’ve done trivia, my parents came out for ten days, I absolutely love going country dancing, I have tried a ton of the restaurants, and I have even traveled and left San Diego twice since I moved in. Once for a brand deal and once to visit Deb. If you are new here, Deb is my boss at Cherokee Uniforms. She is also my best friend.

Produce at Little Italy FM

The experience I HAVE to tell you all about ASAP is the Farmer’s Market in Little Italy. I am not kidding when I say this thing was 6 blocks long on both sides of the street. Absolute monstrosity. I parked, got up to the street level, and I truly couldn’t believe it. I was so overwhelmed I only made it through about 4 blocks, and that took me 2 entire hours. It was absolutely magnificent. There were so many products, goods, foods, flowers, fresh produce, and a ton of very California items (like kombucha, kale chips, kefir drinks, etc.). It was so awesome. I literally felt like I was in heaven. I left with sourdough, tons of produce, some raspberry fruit jerky, coconut peanut butter, fresh flowers, and delicious cheeses. The man selling the cheese never told me what it cost. I never asked. I never looked.

Amy, Lindsay, and me last week

My sister is about to have her third child. We don’t know the sex, so this is a very exciting and anticipatory time. She is such a good mother. She is also such a good sister. I am so happy for her, and I just cannot wait to have my little nugget in my arms. Some people were created to be moms, and that is my sister, Carrie. Some people were created to be aunts, and that is me. Send some good vibes her way, please. Her children mean so much to me, and she is my closest friend and so precious. Our family is blessed, and we are in for an incredible chapter together!

Lunch at Great White in LA

I know you all want an update on the ex, lol. I will just say this: I have seen him since my return to San Diego. It went well. I think we will always be friends no matter what happens. I will keep you posted.

Lindsay (my best friend from LA) is coming down to San Diego this weekend and we are hosting an Asian-inspired dinner party. I am so dang excited! Pictures and updates to follow.

All my love,
