Over the past two months, I have been fortunate enough to spend 20+ hours a week interning for a local media company, and let me tell you: it has been a ton of work, but it has made me so happy. I have felt an immense amount of accomplishment each Friday when I see my work in the newspaper next to some of the greatest names in local journalism. I have had some fantastic coaches, and the whole experience has been invaluable to me. As a quick “month of November wrap-up,” I’ll run some highlights:
This week has been extremely busy as I settle into my new position as an intern for a local media (newspaper) company. It’s been a lot of work, but I am so grateful to have this opportunity in my life to learn from some of the most fantastic journalists, as I grow in my writing skills and gain knowledge. It’s been completely invaluable to me.
On Saturday, Oct. 10, I had a chance to join my fellow Tillamook Co-Op members and food bloggers at the Sunset Magazine Headquarters in Menlo Park, California for lunch!
The afternoon was spent dining on delectable Sunset dishes, meeting Sunset and Tillamook staff, and socializing with some of the Bay Area’s most fascinating food bloggers.
And a special hello to Miss Cheesemonger, a fellow foodie who we happened to meet at the Tillamook ice cream truck in the garden. She runs a gorgeous food blog, and even has her own online shop. Kudos to you!

This weekend, the city of Mountain View hosted their 44th Annual Art & Wine Festival in Downtown Mountain View. After a massive heat wave throughout the city, it was a pleasant surprise to see the clouds hanging low over the downtown area, as we spent an afternoon treating ourselves to local culinary delights.
Labor Day weekend has kicked off the start of Northern California’s fall apple season. El Dorado County is famous for its abundance of apple farms, each overflowing with freshly picked apples, unique baked items, artisan products, and country charm.
The night time summer heat in California is making me long for cool weather, sweaters, boots, and warm knitted hats. It makes me think about my favorite winter traditions. One of my favorite traditions might sound strange to some people.
Making a trip across San Francisco Bay Area’s foggy, winding Highway 92, and down the coast of Highway 1 to visit the coastal town of Pescadero is an annual tradition to my family and me.
You might be thinking, “What? You go to…a BEACH in the winter?”
Absolutely. Our choice to make this trek every February is lead by our hunger for uniquely tangy delicious food, and adorable baby goats.
