Christmas in Tahoe 2013

Cesar and I are not ones for celebrating, especially Christmas. Growing up jewish it has little significance for me, and I have few memories associated with it, and it doesn’t have the fondest memories for Cesar, so this year I decided to plan a little getaway for us. Spend a few days out of the city, in the mountains doing something fun. So off to Tahoe we went and skied the day away!

As you can imagine, I am the world’s worst skier. Literally. I am terrified of ski lifts (hate the heights), fall all over the place and am the biggest wuss. On the opposite note, this was Cesar’s second time ever skiing and he is literally a prodigy. Went down crazy hills on his second run and nailed it.

While we had a great time on the mountain, I most loved the beauty that lives in Tahoe. The gorgeous snow, beautiful sky and amazing trees, I was in heaven. But the best part of all was spending some quality time with a guy that I love with my whole heart.

Until next year, Tahoe. I’m thinking you’ll be a tradition. I hope all of you had a wonderfully fantastic Christmas! I couldn’t love you more.

Shopping for Cesar is probably one of the hardest tasks. He doesn’t ever want anything and is very particular about what he likes and doesn’t like. As a result, i’ve often resorted to unique gifts (creative ice cube molds, flying airplanes and beautiful flasks). While this year we’ve agreed to only give each other stocking stuffer type presents, I asked Cesar to put together a list of things he’d love to receive. And who knows, some of these may just end up in his stocking this year!

I’d love to know, what do you get your guys for Christmas? I’m already compiling ideas for next year!

Thanksgiving Recap 2013

IMG_7430-2

This Thanksgiving was absolutely wonderful. We decided to change it up this year and make it a friendsgiving, as my closest girlfriends from college were able to fly into San Francisco from DC for the holiday. My girlfriends and I spent the weekend shopping, eating, and touring around the city, with plenty of time for late-night chats snuggled on my bed. I wore these amazing jeans from James Jeans, my Tieks basically all weekend, and a loose-fitting button-down for the actual feast.

We had such a magical Thanksgiving (see details here!) but I must say, i’m so thrilled that it is December. It is one of my favorite months and I can’t wait to continue decorating my apartment, cooking warm meals and enjoying time with family and friends.

Beijing, China

These are the last of our China pictures, from our final destination: Beijing. We spent 3 full days in the city, and i’m not gonna lie when I say it was a difficult few days. We were already exhausted from almost 8 days of constant moving, and mainland China is not the easiest to navigate for noobie tourists. Nevertheless, seeing Tiananmen square, the Forbidden city, the Great Wall and tons of night markets and restaurants was amazing, and a true cultural experience for us.

And this guy, waving around, a little loopy from the heat.

Sweaty with no makeup during our very steep hike up the Great Wall! Such an amazing view and highlight of the whole trip.

Last but not least, our final adventure. We rode push carts all the way down the Great Wall to the base! So so amazing and definitely something I would recommend if you visit.
