i had my phone battery replaced on friday afternoon. this was a huge concern, as it required setting down the device and walking away from it for a few hours. it also meant that i had a narrow window for getting to the beach for sunset, once the repairs were finished. i got it back just in time, and me and the phone celebrated our reunion under one of the most amazing sunsets of the year.
To the Bottle I Go - J. R. R. Tolkien
Ho! Ho! Ho! To the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe.
Rain may fall and wind may blow,
And many miles be still to go
But under a tall tree I will lie,
And let the clouds go sailing by.
Sometimes you just have to let the clouds go by.
We make it our *mission* 😉 to capture all the love our couples have for each other. To show not only how amazing they look, but also how happy they are together, how much they cherish each other, and how excited they are to be together! And this lovely couple is no exception!
Succulents seemed to be everywhere @morrobayca , some were quite large. This one example caught my 👀 eye because of the red and blue background of the flower box it was in. No filter today just something I found quite beautiful near the Embarcadero. I hope 🤞 you enjoy. 🐼 📸
Heading into the thick of it and finishing x-mas shopping today. 😅🎄I’ve never liked to shop (unless it’s for plants, crystals, books and music 😬🌱🔮💎📚🎶), but I do enjoy getting things for the people I love. I actually found out years ago I’m allergic to the chemical clothing/department stores spray on clothes and fabrics to preserve them while they are on display in stores. 😷 It made so much sense after I found that out as to why I don’t like malls, clothing stores, etc...they literally make me nauseous and I get a headache and feel exhausted after I hang out in them. My hubby loves the fact that I don’t like to shop because he doesn’t like to either, haha. So he’s spared from me dragging him around to go shopping with me. 😂 Luckily we live in this day and age where online shopping is so easy so we don’t have to go out and shop too much. Obviously, I’m meant to be outside. 🌲🌿🍀🌻🌞
Day 16: Visit the life-size Spanos' Nativity Scene on Lincoln Road! Not a day goes by thinking of Alex Spanos, a man whose philanthropy impacted our community greatly. Thank you, Alex!⠀

I knew I'd be taking astro photography last weekend so I threw my tripod in the car. I didn't think I'd attempt a starlapse for the first time, so I didn't have my intravolometer and instead manually pressed the shutter button 10 or so times with 30 second exposures. The trees came out ok (albeit a weird color) but the stars themselves look more like a Van Gogh painting than the actual sky. It's a start.
