Shiba Inu


Last week my mom adopted a 6 year old male Shiba Inu – his name is Katsu.

mountain view

Went snowboarding in Mammoth last weekend. Hadn’t been back (in the winter at least) for about 5 years, so it was a nice little getaway (especially since it was my birthday weekend). Always love going up there because it’s such a nice break from the city.

post dinner

We ate at Church & State for our anniversary dinner last week. Such a cute little place. We loved the atmosphere – the food was good, but I think the ambiance is what makes this place so popular.

We also tried Blue Bottle Coffee in the arts district of downtown LA. Been wanting to try this place for awhile – so glad they came to LA.
