30 before 30 – The Results!

A little over a year ago, I made a plan. 30 things to do before I turned 30. Well that year came and went in about a day! I always say time flies, but I’m pretty sure it just goes by faster and faster as you get older. Maybe at some point it slows down again? I can wish, right? :) Anywhoo… here ya go! The results are in! 1  |  Grow something edible. My parents had one of those strawberry pots with all the holes in the sides just sitting around, so I acquired it, along with a few baby starter plants. This little guy was the only strawberry that survived before the worms got them and the pot dried out. I wish I’d gotten my dad’s green thumb, but unfortunately I did not. Or have not developed it yet. But nonetheless… I grew a strawberry! One day… 2  |  Learn to cold brew coffee. Darn. Not yet. I really should while the weather is still warm! Here’s a little inspiration, self.     Seems super …

Sunday Sew Love: 5 April

First things first… check out that picture: “Kyla, it’s just the Easter morning sky” you say. Well, yes… but that right there is the Easter morning sky… unedited… with no annoying black dot in the middle of the picture! Hooray! I finally got a cleaning kit for my camera. $8 vs. hundreds… I’m so glad I didn’t send it in to get professionally cleaned. At least this time it worked… I shouldn’t gloat too much or next time it may not :) But at least for now, it’s starting out to be a great day. HAPPY EASTER by the way! I’m hoping for no rain so we can do our brunch festivities outdoors, but I’m pretty sure that’s not on the weatherman’s agenda. We shall see… So this week is all about the details… ogle with me, will you… (top/left) Offsquare Winter Blazer | (top/right) Thread Theory Comfiest Jeans (bottom/left) See Kate Sew Soho Blouse | (bottom/right) Sewn by Elizabeth Relaxed Plantain Until next time,

Fort Bragg Whale Run 2015

I’m not exactly the most serious of runners, but give me a nice view and a cute t-shirt, and I’m on board with just about any race you can throw at me. The Whale Run one was right up that alley. It was in Fort Bragg last weekend – right along the coast… and even though the weather wasn’t great, it was still so beautiful. Here are a few pictures from along the way: As I was coming across the finish line, phone in hand, the announcer made a comment about texting while running. :/ If only he knew how bad I am at texting… Anyway, I’ve decided I’m about halfway on board with phone photos. You go anywhere these days and all you see are people with there phones taking pictures. I’m usually standing around thinking, ‘what happened to all the cameras in the world!?’ Is this just another sign I’m getting old? Hmm… perhaps. But I guess I have to give my phone a little credit; they are decent quality. And it’s definitely better …
