Things Tria Loves

I love soooo many things, but here's the distilled version:

Reading & Writing have shaped who I am. Taking in the work of authors lets me experience worlds I would never otherwise be able to, and producing my own writing helps me process the world I live in. 

There’s nothing more relaxing to me than painting. When I was growing up, instead of going to Chuck E Cheese's, my two sisters, mom and I would spend the weekends on the porch with our paintbrushes. Now whenever I paint it feels like home.

I’m not crazy about exercising, but I do love to dance. In November I’m going to the Movement Lifestyle Tour with amazing teachers like these two newlyweds:

I love animals of all kinds, with a special soft spot for kitties, bunnies, and whales. This has led to a slight obsession with animals in weddings, as you can see from my pinterest board. 

oh heyy kitties~

Animal-shaped things also really do it for me.

I might never grow up

Cooking at home saves me so much money, is (usually) healthier than eating out, and is always fun to do with friends and family :) Wanna come over and make dinner?

It’s hard to boil all the things I love down to one list! In life, I try (but um, don’t always succeed) to choose happiness, adventure, hard work, hard play, and good food.

Here is a sampling of the things I love...
  • My husband, Jon
  • My nephew, Thomas
  • A sunny day in San Francisco
  • Pink peonies
  • French bulldogs
  • Traveling and being in unfamiliar cultures
  • Fresh baked bread from Tartine Bakery
  • Online shopping – favorite sites: Zappos, Amazon, The Outnet, Fat Wallet. Recently discovered True&Co!
  • Thanksgiving dinner – turkey, yams and pie, oh my!
  • Diamonds and jewelry with meaning
  • Old photographs of family
  • Comfortable clothes – soft cotton, cashmere, broken in jeans
