September has been AHHHHHHHHMAZING. I have been juggling a lot lately so a month of fun is just what the doctor ordered. As I type this I am feeling refreshed and genuinely happy as I think about my bursts for the month. Sometimes a gal just needs to say “f*ck it” and make the best of things. That is exactly what this gal did.

My dip for September is that I have been feeling a tad worn down due to so many special events on my calendar. I have a big heart and that comes with a large circle of friends. Last year was all about summer weddings and this year it’s all about weddings in the fall. With the exhaustion and depleted bank account comes a radiant smile across my face though so I will happily embrace this dip.

There are a three bursts for September…

Hartman and I headed to Portland the beginning of the month to celebrate the wedding of our oldest couple friends, Yayo & Nat. We met them in Santa Barbara so they are one of the few couples we know that have been dating longer than us. This was my first visit to Portland so exploring the city was incredibly fun. We had the MOST amazing time reconnecting with old coworkers from our Bacara days. It blew my mind to think that it has been ten years since we all lived in SB. Such a trip how quickly life passes you by. Their wedding was hipster magic and we were so honored to have shared in their day of happiness.

I went to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with my Sister-in-law to be mid-month and this trip was WILD. We threw caution to the wind and had the time of our lives. I have never been on a trip that fun in my entire life. I think the reason I had such an extraordinarily superb time is because I had no expectations. We partied poolside, danced in the rain, and watched the sunrise on the beach. This trip was EVERYTHING. Can’t wait for Sav to be my Sis officially. #STRNeverDies

Most weddings I get invited to are destination weddings so when we get invited to a local one, that is rather thrilling. Matty was one of my first friends in Santa Barbara back in 2003. Matty found the perfect girl to spend his forever with. I brought me so much joy to dance at with him and his wedding to 80’s music just as we did at Q’s in SBeezie over a decade ago. As the sunset over San Diego my heart was overflowing with happiness. Joy is contagious after all and this Bride and Groom beamed all night.
