Stop and Stare

I spent the morning in my backyard trying to make a patch of dirt into garden worthy soil. Not easy my friend. While trying to do so something caught my attention. A beautiful flower growing amongst the very twigs of a tree that once grew nothing. I couldn't help but smile that something so beautiful was right under my nose. This makes me realize how important it is to just stop. Stop what your doing and just see the beauty that is basically everywhere. The sweet smell of freshly baked bread. The warmth of the sun shining down. The vivid red color of a ripe tomato. The list goes on...

Life is grand.

Hope your day is filled with happy sightings!

Sandwiches are still on my mind.

This morning might be the greatest morning of all. Why you ask? Well, I have stumbled across the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Like A M A ZING. A blog+book called Scanwiches. Scanwiches is a collection of pictures of sandwiches taken right before being devoured, which to me is the most beautiful sight ever. I DIE.
Anyways, hope your day is filled with amazing discoveries.. and SANDWICHES!

If you were stuck on a deserted island...

and can eat only one thing what would it be?
I hate to admit it but this is sort of an easy question for me. It would most definitely be...sandwiches!! I love me some sandwiches.
Which brings us to goal #2. Eat the yummiest, top notch sandwiches in California(for now and later the WORLD).
Here are some of the places I have been meaning to try, that I can think of on the top of my head.
1. Euro Pane Bakery Egg Salad Sandwich

2.  The Daily Dose Cafe, Farmer Sandwich
3. Ike's Place (SF)

4. Canter's Deli, Monte Cristo Sandwich

Drawing a blank...Any suggestions?

Wash Me Clean

A new year means a clean slate. Time to to make things right.
Watching all of my friends grow and become such incredible people has motivated me to do the same. Thank you to all of my friends and peers who live out your dreams everyday. I bet you don't know how much it affects me. So now that I have established to become a better person, I will post new goals, resolutions, and anything that I think is worthy to blog. Because hey, this is the happiness space right? Do whatever makes you happy. Seriously. Just do it!

1. Take more pictures. (Thanks Mike Chang you have inspired me!)
