Camping in Mendocino

We went on a camping trip in July and it was pretty perfect. It was far enough away that we felt disconnected from Sacramento and there was no cell service for most of the trip… which was amazing. This has been a very busy work season so I relished the chance to literally disconnect and…

Nikon FE test

I acquired this gorgeous 1970s Nikon FE a few years back from a family member but never had the chance to use it. Anyway I dug it out recently, along with my treasure trove of other film cameras, and I’m working on a project that is film exclusive. I’m really excited to get back into real…

An Adventure in Hong Kong, a Trip Report

Okay. Hong Kong was a crazy trip. I’m just going throw it out there right now. You’re going to read this and think: ‘they are completely insane.’ And maybe we are. But I recently read a quote by Genevieve Gorder via Grace Bonney’s In the Company of Women and it just really has been my life statement lately: Travel…

Travel is Life!

The website has been a little quiet lately because we’ve been travelling like madmen. We made a little personal challenge to outdo last year’s travel and so far, we’re way on the mark ✔ Here’s a quick recap of the last month: Austin, Texas : business trip & managed to sneak in some fun time Milan,…

Golden 1 Center Instameet

I had the amazing privilege to tour the new Golden 1 Center last Sunday along with some of Sacramento’s finest Instagrammers and photographers. It’s always a good time to see my pals but it was even more special when you can share this once-in-a-lifetime experience together. It truly is once-in-a-lifetime because this arena — which will…

Seattle Birthday Vibes

I thought last year’s birthday celebrations were amazing but this year has kind of topped the cake… at least for now! Seattle, baby. Picture this. We were sitting at SMF back in March, as we were getting ready to fly down to LAX for our Japan trip, and find that Southwest released a slew of…

Japan, whoop whoop

Japan! Aweeee, can I just go back already? Man, what a great trip. We got to spend over 2 weeks in one of our favorite cities in the world. Here are some more photos. A few observations about this amazing country: Everyone queues up (lines up) for everything. It’s so efficient and polite. I feel…

Throwback Thursday: Japan

In honor of Throwback Thursday, we’re obsessing over our upcoming Japan trip by reminiscing on our previous trip! We went to Japan as part of our Round the World Honeymoon in 2014. That trip was such an adventure! We even called it Eddie & Christine’s Excellent Adventure. I can’t believe that was 2 years ago. We flew into Japan… on…

Dine Downtown 2016

Dine Downtown is upon us! Dine Downtown is singularly the best event I enjoy in January. When the holidays are over and you’re trying to get back into the swing of things at work, there’s nothing more fun than setting up a girlfriend date, a date night with my amazing hubby and a double date with our good…

Adventures in Washington D.C.

Eddie and I are pretty fortunate that we can work remotely with our jobs. As long as we have our laptops with a good internet connection, we can produce our usual, high-quality work from basically anywhere (including 35,000 feet in the air)! Our laptops serve as the brains of our daily operation with software development…

Omakase at Morimoto Napa

I’ve done this twice now and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Napa or anywhere that specializes in an Omakase experience. In case you didn’t know, Eddie and I are huge foodies so look out for more of my experiences (and with better photos). Coming up soon is a dinner at Bourbon Steak in…

Sacramento Kings shoot

I was honored to shoot for the Sacramento Kings instagram account on Wednesday, 11/11.
