Currently // Friday Night Lights + Santa Cruz + Blogshop

New favorite show that I’m addicted to: Friday Night Lights! I’ve just been in a TV mood lately. So when I finished House of Cards, I was craving another drama series to get into. Thanks to Netflix, I started watching Friday Night Lights, and love it. Dillon Texas is nothing like my home town or high school, but I think anyone can relate to it. I was talking to one of my friends who also loves the show and happens to teach high school and we were both remarking on how “real” the show is. It focuses on real high school issues of today’s world, and doesn’t sugar coat things. I really appreciate that.

This past weekend we went on short trip up to Santa Cruz (about 5 hours north of LA) for a dear friend’s wedding. What a beautiful place. We were only there for a few hours, but I am already planning another trip. Small town feel with the beach on one side and the redwoods on the other side. If you’re ever in the area, do yourself a favor and make a stop. And it kinda rained on the wedding day! So moody and misty and magical. Loooooved it.

Last Thursday and Friday I volunteered as an intern for Blogshop LA. Such a fun 2 days! Bri and Angela taught  the class, and me and 2 other graphic designers helped set up and answer questions. It was so fun to be a part of, and so inspiring to see how these amazing creative ladies teach and put on such a successful event.
