June Favorites

This month was a very special one for me. As you know from my last few posts, I spent my first time living by myself in my own space, and boy, was it an experience. I knocked a whole bunch of “firsts” out of the way this month, from locking myself out of my apartment and receiving my first parking ticket (I cried) to shooting my first summer tabletop + loungewear lookbook and driving back home to surprise my parents. June was one of the most exciting few weeks ever, and a month on my own allowed me to grow in ways I didn’t expect. I’m glad I did it, but let’s just say the thought of being a grown-up still makes me a bit nervous! I’m super excited to share a mix of photos of my favorite things in June. Keep reading for some announcements and fresh site updates!

I’ll just say I’m not ashamed of how often I wanted to go to Zocalo Cafe for quesadillas.

I cooked dinner almost every day, and this roasted chicken and veggies with lemon and garlic orzo was my favorite dish out of everything I made. Another What I Eat In a Day post, maybe?
