A Monday night well spent. A Tuesday morning pounding water. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Monday vibes. Full disclosure, I read the New Yorker for the comics.

You know what’s great about having acne in your thirties? People still think you’re a tired college student, so it takes you slightly longer to order alcohol as you you mine your wallet for the ID with puppy teeth marks in it. Unrelated to my face, but very related to this long weekend, I watched To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix and it was 💯. It’s everything I love about YA fiction. It does justice to the book and the casting was spot on.

We’re teaching the little one how to stay on the porch, and also how not to pee inside, and he sort of gives zeros shits, and he’s tiring us all out. So that’s fun. But he’s super cute, which helps.

This was after he tried to completely climb on the dashboard of the car and I told him no. #doodlediaries

Well, I think I’ve found my wedding decor. Vince says no, but negotiations have just begun. #gothicbride

Puppy with a purpose.

I don’t quite have the words to capture exactly how remarkable it was to see this woman marry this man on this particular day. She has done the grueling work to sink into the human she‘s meant to be. And I couldn’t be happier or prouder of the friend I saw today be the type of vulnerable that few are willing to tackle. I’m rooting for you—I’ve always been. You are beyond deserving. Definition of. • “Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” from The Velveteen Rabbit

I love the first few days of switching coasts because I can pretend I’m a morning person. Breakfast at 7am? No problem. A conversation at 7:30am? Yes, please. And I’ll take my coffee (that I never finish) black—like an early morning boss. ☕️

I have arrived in Oregon where there is no sales tax and the local cider is blueberry. (So, I had two). Thank you weekend for coming just in time. Looking forward to celebrating a friend who is full of love, life, and fight. 👰🏼 Side note: burgers are like $15 here so I’m not moving back to this coast anytime soon.

Something about faded glossy photos reminds me of all the lives we lived and the ones coming ‘round the bend. I found this one of my mom while going through boxes, looking for baby pics of my siblings. You should know she still looks like this except she grew out her bangs and has five gray hairs. She also moved to Indonesia upon retiring because apparently I have the parents who become nomads in their 50’s. And we all still love rice and beans because #puertorican
