HOURGLASS AND BLOOM #lifestyleblog

Born, raised, and still living in Southern California.

A little hound named Wyatt Earp trotted into my life two years ago and instantly became my best friend.

I could eat Mexican food every single day for the rest of my life and it would still be complete bliss.

Newlywed! Madly in love with my soul mate.

I can often be found at my parent’s house just down the road, perched at the kitchen counter with a cocktail, no doubt talking loudly about politics or food or what have you.

Lover of the outdoors.

Dreamer, hunter, gatherer, adorer of flora and fauna.

Passionate for life in slow motion and advocate of the little things.
