Life Lately

Hey there, blogland! I sure have missed you! It's fun to be back in this little space of mine again. I feel like everything has been going 100 miles an hour and I haven't been able to catch my breath. I'm also having a hard time understanding how it was just January 1st, and all of a sudden here we are now about to approach the beginning of April! Whaaa?!?! But really. Time-you have to slow down. Life lately has been a lot about the "next thing". I'm in the middle of a serious job hunt, Andy and I are considering moving to San Diego, and somehow we are already making Summer travel plans. Whoa. I'm not really one to enjoy having things up in the air, but somehow I'm super cool with all of this right now. SO, life is pretty alright! I will say, I haven't tapped into my inner creative and that's a bummer. I'm hoping to get to crafting sometime in the next few days. Not sure what I'm feeling like making, but I definitely want to make something! Here's a little more of what I've been up to since we last caught up...

Margarita making. A lot of margarita making.

Andy and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary! We spent our day napping and watching Netflix. Ha! We also started a new tradition of picking up mini cakes and sweets from the bakery where we got our wedding cake. This was actually just a random thing we came up with after we pulled out our frozen cake we had saved from our wedding day and decided it looked horrific. If you actually ate the cake you saved-I applaud you. We had to dare each other like children to eat it and neither one of us budged. Perhaps I froze it wrong?...The day after our anniversary was Leap Day, so we spent it at our happy place! Obviously!

I went wine tasting with coworkers! I love wine country! Also, totally digging California weather more than usual. Even with our weird bursts of rain.

We've been taking Duke everywhere lately! Tell us it's dog friendly and we are there! It's fun to travel in our pack of 3. It's extra fun to watch his goofy grin everywhere he goes. We've especially been loving the dog beach. It's one of the few places I'm okay with him being off leash. Last time we were there a wave took him and he looked half terrified half excited, haha.

This past weekend we celebrated Andy's 28th birthday with a few of our friends! I love being surrounded by such great people. We are seriously lucky to have the friends we have. Also, they all live in San Diego. Reason #1389983094 that we are considering the move. Eeek!

Sunday morning, Andy and I had brunch in San Diego before heading home. We absolutely love the North Park area. I lived in San Diego when I went to college there but never fully experienced all it's neat crevices. Now that I can appreciate it more, I feel like it's a good mix of LA and OC. Quiet and homey enough like Orange County, but also fun and creative like Los Angeles! The biggest thing holding us back from moving right now is Andy's job and the comfort of knowing Orange County so well. We also have my parents here and a lot of my own friends are here too. But then we think, now's the time-we don't have kids and don't own property yet! We can do whatevaaahhhh! Any of you ever had a similar struggle? Also, can you just tell me what to do, please? Haha :)

So that's what's been going on in my world! What's up with you?!? Tell me everything!
