heartforhugs Julie.

Breakfast hangs with this beloved friend this morning. I am so blessed to have her in my life. The best mentor and inspiration I could have asked for. Grateful for deep questions, insightful sharing, and wisdom gleaned. Plus she let me take her picture. @devilsteethbakers

Under the Dome. In the mall. Preposition mastery as we went through the mall, under the dome, and into the stores.

heartforhugs Superman.

Had the delight of getting to spend the morning with this Super-man and Mount Davidson did not disappoint us at all. Rainy PNW weather greeted us and provided this gorgeous foggy backdrop for our shooting. Thank you so much for meeting up with us Phil! It was a great morning! #thatSFtree

heartforhugs LA.

Back in SF after a whirlwind trip to LA for a few days. It was a full trip with lots of miles and memories. I definitely need to return someday! So much exploring left to do and so many wonderful people! #cityscapes

heartforhugs ForceChoke.

Got to meet Kyle yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed his company. His creativity and eye for detail is impeccable. His patience and willingness to teach others new tricks and share his knowledge and incredible skill is inspiring. He made us feel not only welcome, but connected. Thank you for giving of yourself! #forcechoke

heartforhugs LACMA.

A reminder from the museum today: consider the point. If you had one thing to point out to someone in your area, what would you point toward? Where or to what is your life pointing? #minimal

heartforhugs Manhattan.

First night in LA we arrived just before golden hour. So naturally we hit up Manhattan Beach for the sunset. A lovely night with a warm breeze, toes in the sand, and cool ocean waves lapping at our feet. It was a wonderful way to spend the evening. Today is another full day of urban adventure--hitting as many places as we can in the city. #manhattanbeach

Headed to LA for a few days and we are so excited. This vacation has been incredible so far and I can't wait to see what's in store. Also excited to reconnect with friends and meet some instagrammer friends in person. Here's to new adventures! #jumpstagram

heartforhugs Drew.

My friend Drew has been an amazing host for our time here in SF. He is one of the most hospitable and compassionate people I know. His heart and love for his city and for his neighbors is inspiring. After all of our adventures today and his love for cars, I encouraged him to make an Instagram. Be sure to welcome him to the community and watch his work blossom. I can't tell y'all just how wonderful he is. So grateful for his friendship over the years. #makeportraits

heartforhugs Swoon. (21)

This is Bethany--the famous instagram one who I finally got to meet. This is the face she makes when she swoons. The modern understanding of swooning would be something like "fangirling," but softer, the initial moment. Essentially it's that moment someone who intrigues and attracts you makes eye contact for the first time intellectually as well as physically. Stay tuned for more #swoonfaceseries

Bethany, it was is nice to finally meet you! (Ironically in another state when we live in the same area.) You are as lovely as I imagined and, while brief, our encounter was a soft interlude in my day. Grateful to have met you.

San Francisco adventures day one: Downtown, the Hyatt, the Ferry Building (pictured), Fisherman's Wharf and the all important Boudin, and Mount Davidson's Park. A great day with this gal as our tour guide! #travelgram

heartforhugs 15,500.

We landed and jumped right in! A beautiful day here. 15,500 steps of exploring San Francisco later, I am happy to report I am headed to bed after some wonderful reconnecting with two dear friends and the opportunity to meet a few new ones too! I am currently most grateful for the generosity of my friend Drew who has a soft and cozy bed that is coaxing me to sleep after such a long day. Goodnight, SF! #fromwhereistand

heartforhugs Shared.

Captured this tender moment of a shared breakfast while getting my hipster on this morning in SF at the Devil's Teeth Bakery. And what a delicious breakfast sandwich it was! With a cup of Trouble Coffee to accompany it and a quick reunion with a colleague, it's been a great start to vacation thus far! #strangergram

heartforhugs Bromance.

In the making. These two are quite the pair! And who can blame them for taking in the view together? "It is those who desire the good of their friends for the friends’ sake that are most truly friends, because each loves the other for what he is, and not for any incidental quality" -Aristotle #weekendonwhidbey
