ROSÉ PARTY

Kat from KatWalkSF invited me to take some photos of her Facebook live event with Brit+Co and Pinterest. I was thrilled for the opportunity and once I have this baby I will be sure to try out these recipes. 

Sunny Sunday

San Francisco has been rainy for most of January, but the rain held off for a few hours, which allowed me to take some photos for the Castro Courier's January issue.

Nepal

I spent most of the month of October in the beautiful country of Nepal.

I was amazed with the busy streets of Kathmandu, hiked more in a day than I thought my legs could, sat in a monastery while listening to the chanting of monks, woke up to a magnificent view of Everest, got my camera punched by a little whipper snapper while I took his photo, cooked and ate Nepali food, met some amazing people and had an overall unforgettable experience. 

Here are some photos from my trekking journey.
