the author of this operation >

as you may have caught elsewhere, i am a twenthy-something LA native with a passion for writing, food, travel, and a great heidi swanson cookbook (if not JUST to look at the pictures). if you throw a great fashion magazine in there too, i'm yours. on my best days, i'm a gypsy heart, but on most others, i'm a classic rule follower. i met my husband (grant) in college, and we've been married for almost two years now (WHAT THE). i feel so unbelievably blessed to be journeying through this thing called life with him. on the blog i'll be sharing bits and pieces of life here in sunny pasadena, california - from local brunch spots to marriage learnings and everything in between. i'm so happy you're here to hop in on this journey with me and I hope you'll stay awhile!


main character. better half <

grant made his way down to LA from the monterey peninsula (think Carmel wine tasting) to attend azusa pacific university and has been stuck ever since. he is a jack of all trades and an entrepreneurial spirit. he could make friends with a rock and looks excellent in denim. that last point sums this up well i think.



(not yet pictured) ace joined the bridges family in 2014, shortly after the family even started in the first place. he rounds us out and constantly provides comedic relief. ace is a miniature pinscher and loves peanut butter, his cuddle cup, and dead bugs, although we try not to let him indulge too much in that last one.
