Sweating & Eating My Way Through Austin

I was able to join Matt for his work conference trip to Austin.  It was the first time in Austin for both of us.  From what I can tell a highlight of the city is countless bars and live music.  Since we are more morning peeps I took a different tourist approach to Austin and … Continue reading

Things I know to be true

I now understand more what Hippie Triathlete wrote about a couple years ago.  I started doing tris in 2007 to try something new and challenge myself.  And up until recently I was just happy finishing and doing my best for the day.  Last year I improved my Ironman Oceanside 70.3 time so based on the … Continue reading

Julian

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary in Julian, CA about 14.5 years ago by staying at a bed and breakfast (sadly burned down years later in a wildfire), eating at restaurants in town and going to a winery.

Foreshadowing

Matt and I watch a lot of movies and I joke that I should have been a director or producer as I can usually pick up on foreshadowing and determine what is going to happen next. Over the past few months we’ve had some encounters that I am starting to see as foreshadowing as to … Continue reading

Sunday Brunch Vegan Style

One thing non vegans might not know is there are not a lot of Sunday Brunch options for the vegan crowd (don’t know if you can call 1% of the population a crowd but can’t wait for that number to grow into a crowd!). I am part of the San Diego Vegans group on Facebook … Continue reading
