Cali Travels: San Francisco


A week or so ago Paul and I spent a long weekend up in San Francisco for my birthday! On the same day a few years ago, Paul and I found ourselves in the same city celebrating a birthday and an engagement, so we have nothing but the fondest memories of the city! Despite it being... read more

Happy Weekend! Paul and I just got back from LA area for a quick work trip. First stop on the list was a visit to one of our favorite fish taco mini-chains that, unfortunately, has not spread to our neck of the woods.  While we only traveled about two hours away from home, it was refreshingly... read more

KP Travels: Sydney (part two)


On our last full day in town, my lover and I took a leisurely stroll down to the Sydney Fish Market. This one-stop shop is a working port, wholesale market, bakery, sushi bar, and the list goes on… It’s actually the third largest of its kind in the world, but just to give you some... read more

KP Travels: Sydney (Part One)


After our week in Parramatta, we took the (very convenient, affordable and efficient) train to downtown Sydney. Per usual, I had spent a bit of time researching the proper neighborhood for us to spend the weekend. Obviously I wanted the neighborhood itself to be fitting to our style, but also I wanted close proximity to... read more

The cool part of... read more

Weekend Reading!


Happy Weekend! It is a chilly and rainy one here in San Diego – it almost feels like fall…which is weird!  No complaints though – the rain is a blessing! Not much going on this weekend other than drinking lots of my new favorite cold brew and bundling up (finally get to wear my wellies)... read more
