Is there a magical time when you become an adult? Moving out of your parent's house? Paying your first bill? Getting married? Having kids? Turning 30? We are still figuring it out and writing about our journey along the way!
It’s snowing in my hometown right now. My mom just sent me this beautiful snow picture from our backyard. Can’t wait to be home for the holidays!
I went to see the movie Coco this week. It is incredible. It’s an animated kids movie so you can take the whole family, but it’s great for date night in your 20s too!
I am still working on my travel post about the amazing trip we took to Italy for Thanksgiving this year. My travel buddy, Allie from The White Apartment, just did her post and all of her photos are gorgeous – check it out! She also has great posts from the last two Thanksgiving’s that we’ve shared. In 2015 she and her husband hosted us in San Francisco and last year we hosted her and Xan in LA.
I have finally started buying Christmas presents. This year my family is being super budget conscious and trying to do $10 or less for each person. I thought it was going to be crazy hard but am actually having a ton of fun trying to find deals!
Our backyard has a wall of bamboo on one side which is great for privacy but terrible for weeding. I recently pulled out a bunch of dead stalks and am now on the hunt for DIY projects involving bamboo!
