Ankit Shah  things I think are beautiful

This picture makes me so giggly. I hope it does the same for you.

Sometimes I take pictures of Charlotte like this one and kinda wish I had some sort of lifestyle brand to promote because this would look pretty solid with some sort of tagline about the backpack she's wearing and how it's perfect for nature or something. Since I have no products to sell you, I guess I'll just encourage you to go outside and see the world.
On another note, something I appreciate about Charlotte is that she regularly inspires me to get outside and off my screens far more than I'd do on my own, and I think I'm far better off because of it.

Martian pooping is one of my favorite things, second only to having a staring contest with Martian while he's pooping.

Watching the sun rise with @happygolilley yesterday.

Valentine's Day creates an unusual pressure to celebrate love in a day, as if one day is a sufficient container to commemorate all that makes a love great.
There's nothing large that makes my and Charlotte's relationship amazing. Instead, there is an endless list of small reasons — little things about the way we interact, what we bring out in each other, and what we learn about ourselves through one another.
All these small things, in isolation, seem kind of mundane. Almost non-reasons. None of them individually warrant a big proclamation on a day like today, but when they compile on one another, moment after moment, and pair themselves with the commitment that we have to continuing those small things, a love is born. And that's worth celebrating.

So today, we decided to wake early and watch the sunrise together. Tonight, we'll watch the sun set. In between, we're just hanging at a cafe and doing some work. Because what makes this love great is that we start and end each day together.

Last night, the hosts of Tea With Strangers SF got together for a potluck dinner. It was a beautiful dinner full of laughs, vulnerability, and gratitude. I was delightfully reminded that every member of this community is so interesting, so curious, and so thoughtful.
I took a few photos of some of the hosts that I think are cool. (#6)

A few weeks ago, Charlotte and I spent a few days hanging out in San Rafael at George’s house. He didn’t need us to house sit or anything, but he wasn’t home for a few days and he invited us to enjoy his hood for a few days (I think this is the adult version of playing house). In San Rafael, we discovered an Arizmendi Bakery.
Now, I LOVE Arizmendi Bakery. Like, really love it. There was a 3 month period where I went there 5 days a week in SF for their daily slice of pizza. But they’re a small establishment, so to find one in San Rafael was like a gift I never would’ve expected.

And at this Arizmendi, they make a daily sandwich. And it is amazing. And this is a picture of Charlotte eating that sandwich. And she is amazing. So this is a picture of two things I love dearly just…together.
