Maybe it was too late to start a new life in a new city... maybe not. Yes, her age showed when she donned a sensible onesie over a skimpy two-piece and preferred a single glass of wine in bed over an all-night rager. But she felt the youth of a blossoming girl when the pink-purple dawn broke over kitchen window, when she mastered the art of public transportation and when she asked third level questions in an effort to make a new best friend. #swandiego
THIS is why we moved here. Outdoor yoga overlooking the ocean. I woke up early and did all my meal prep like a good girl. We got on our bikes and stretched out our bodies and hearts with the sound of crashing waves and the feel of the warm sun. ☀️ 🌊 🚲
Breakfast bread boat with spicy Italian sausage, roma tomatoes, brie and eggs on a sourdough loaf. The Swansons devoured their brunch while lounging in the morning sunlight. Afterwards, they gave each other neck massages and took their midmorning Saturday nap. 🥖🍅🍳🧀🍽🌅💆🏾💆🏼‍♂️😴

Exploring the music venues here has been a bouquet for my ears. It’s a different sound than Sacramento. A bit more experimental but less polished. The crowd is a less engaged but there’s more people. Either way, being surrounded by those who love to share their craft is always rewarding.
Brazilian dinner while debating the existence of karma. Feijoada, cilantro lime mango jasmine rice, Caesar salad with butter garlic croutons and smoky paprika chili chicken. 🇧🇷🍚🥗🍗
Birthday Brunch for Beach Boy: hash browns with smoky paprika, crispy egg, leftover ribeye and bacon wrapped asparagus and hollandaise. Also, we found some @insightcoffee stashed in the corner of my car!

Sometimes I wonder if I’m actually funny. Then I see pictures like this and I know: I am hilarious.

I was just a nervous girl that happened to sing a karaoke song in front of you. Later, you tapped me on the shoulder and said, “I didn’t know you could do that,” and I felt like the most important person in the universe. That is your gift to us. I love you my darling and happy birthday.

So ready for a bubble bath and wine. I just finished my final exam as a dating specialist and I’m so so happy to finally chill out for the rest of the day. Currently got @britneyspears “Overprotected” stuck in my head and craving Cacio E Pepe. Happy that the sun is finally coming out.
In a world of stuffy, crowded, pricey bars, be a @garagekitchenbar. Before the @reynoldsgareth show, we wandered into this perfect spot. Two bar stools perfectly perched next to each other, smiley bartender suggesting to order right away to catch the happy hour pricing and 🔥🍽. Happy belly.

The hero of our story meets the girl that makes him feel uncomfortable in all the right ways by chance in a noisy dive bar at edge of downtown San Diego. They wax philosophical and debate the musical importance of TRex. He acts real bored when she giggles through the dark alleys but truly, he is enchanted. Coming soon to a theater near you, it’s “Swansong,” rated R. #mostlovedgirlever
I’ve been subbing broccoli for rice lately and I’m a little upset that it took me this long to figure that delicious one out. Also, fried chili oil. Why don’t I have that in my kitchen at all times? So. You are looking at what I’ve been eating for every meal for the past four days: stir fried broccoli, sweet peas, yellow onion, corn, bacon, jumbo shrimp with avocado and sunflower seeds. Seasoned with fried chili oil and garlic. Also: new kitchen lighting is perfecto. #ollafactory
Who goes to the bar to study? This place is not a block away, has trivia and window seating. I’ve gotta study for my training that starts on Monday. Ever the over-achiever, I’m going over all my material so I can show off. It’s starting to feel very official with the new job and permanent apartment. It’s very nice. #sandiegocitizen #swandiego #mostlovedgirlever
Tonight, I celebrate my love for food... I highly recommend making fondant potatoes. Crispy on the outside and creamy in the middle. So good! Served with butter basted ribeye, salad greens with home made creamy cilantro dressing, chimichurri shrimp and garlic parsley bread. Also! @greenflashbeer has a fantastic sour passion fruit beer I’m so addicted to right now. Cheers!
Grab a dog, a @greenflashbeer and explore @balboapark. The mister and I are celebrating! We just put a deposit down for our permanent studio (no more week to week hotel!). It’s right by the beach, a French bakery, a tiny taco stand and a chocolatier. I’m excited to Pinterest it out, get some small space solutions up in there and make our home. #swandiego
“Our whole life together is a special date,” he says. But some dates are more romantical than others right?

This year I made a best friend. Bacardi became my calming force when anxiety hit. He cleaned up my cooking messes on the floor. He taught me how to appreciate the smell of Mom’s garden and I taught him the pop cultural importance of Law and Order SVU. He was a testament of how happiness is possible even after you’ve lost your sense of vision. He showed me that even an old dog can learn new tricks and that strength is found in just waking up and saying hello even if your body wants to just lay down all day. But most importantly, he showed me that you can take a blind leap every day and not only survive, but soar. My best friend passed away today. My heart is broken. He was a sweet boy. He was a Hurricane Katrina survivor. He was as blind as a bat but he saw me. I loved him. I hope you’re eating a ton of bacon, modeling hats and teaching all the dogs how to find the most comfy spots on the couch. I’ll see you on the other side my friend. We’ll watch some true crime and I’ll finally take you on that bike ride I kept promising you. I love you.
