08.05.18 Warm days. I’m happier when I get to fly back to the West Coast. Found this little spot while I was walking around the city. A dirty chai latte with oat milk and an overpriced slice of banana bread; I would do it again though.  San Jose, CA

08.06.18 Moments after you said, “I’m driving my man’s car” and I still smile when I’m the passenger of my own vehicle. You made me replay the song: Young Blood by Noah Kahan. Long Beach, CA

08.08.18 Even though I’m not vegan anymore I still incorporate as many dairy free products into my life as I can. Califia Farms will always be my favorite non-dairy milk so I was happy to see this at a nearby gas station. Normally I’m set with a plain black coffee but this was a nice change; 9/10. Great Falls, Montana

08.22.18 It feels a little surreal being back in this city. I can’t believe it’s been six months since I moved out of New York. Surprisingly I really miss it here, the weird smells, the hustle, the people. I’m glad I was able to live here even if it was just for a year. Goodnight New York, New York
