On February 2016 my long time boyfriend, high school sweetheart, and baby daddy of my 2 beautiful boys, relocated from the East Bay Area to Sacramento! We were your typical Silicon Valley Family, with a spouse in the tech industry. Born and raised natives to Cali. Whatever company daddy was working with, you can count me and the kids there on campus. As a stay-at-home, I’d reach out to multiple Meetup groups, from stay-at-home mommies, to spouses of tech husbands. After a while we wanted to slow it down to open land, history, culture, and away from the overused-over hyped up San Francisco, Bay Area. As tech companies are taking over the San Francisco Bay Area, it became impossible for our family to enjoy the pleasures of the area.

Here is where you can find all my Sacramento discoveries. From family friendly activities, parks and recreation, to my new favorite coffee shops, date night restaurants, and let’s not leave out Thrift Stores!! Sacramento is filled with Thrift Stores, so I’m so excited to share my new discoveries from Midtown, East Sac, West Sac, to North Natomas. Sacramento is a big place, and I’m so happy I can start a new chapter with my family as I enter my thirties!!

HellaSketchy Sacramento

When moving to Sacramento back in 2016, it totally slipped my mind that David Garibaldi was from the same city. I actually was at a brewery during my son’s little league uniform pick-up, and spotted David on the cover of Sacramento Magazine…

The Banyan Tree

It’s been a year since we’ve moved to Sacramento, and with many of the amazing things that make Sacramento has to offer, one this that Sacramento is very proud of is their local businesses (and also how affordable it is, compared to the San Francisco Bay Area.) I started coloring my hair late of 2015, and was always paying around $200 dollars for a color and…

Sacramento Railway Station : Amtrak

Last month, the boys and I took Amtrak for the first time! For those international readers, Amtrak is a passenger railroad service that provides medium- and long-distance intercity service in the adjoining United States. Whether traveling around Northern California for business or pleasure, the boys and I wanted to skip the traffic and parking hassles and take the train!! Amtrak Capitol Corridor provides convenient, frequent and affordable daily service between the Sacramento region and…

Oak Park and the New Triangle District

Since my move to Sacramento, there has been a change in grocery store retailers. We were so used to Safeway, Luckys, and Raley’s back in the Bay Are, but here in Sacramento, they offer Bel Air, which is part of the Raley’s Family Fine Stores (Raleys Bel Air Nob Hill Foods.) One other new grocery market I noticed in the Sacramento area was…

Oak Park and the New Triangle District

A few weekends ago the family and I took a trip to Oak Park in Sacramento. I wanted to do a little bit of exploring, as well as Christmas shopping, and hopefully stumbling upon a coffee shop. Oak Park is informally bounded by (US Route 50) to the North, Stockton Blvd. to the East (CA 99). It is situated within the city limits and provides easy access to the ever growing/changing Downtown Sacramento. The streets intersect with avenues and there is one main street that runs through all of Oak Park, Martin Luther King Jr. …

Carefully Curated

Within the upcoming week I’ll be mailing out our Christmas cards. (Yes. I know, seems a little late. –To my standards especially.) BUT!! There’s a lot of timing to this years holiday card. In our card display’s our 2016 photoshoot in which we took early November. As my family photoshoots are usually held in the spring time early on in the year, this year ended up scheduled once we were fully “fully,” situated in Sacramento…

Explore Midtown: The Art Beast

Moving to a new city is always scary. Leaving your friends and family behind, and starting all over again, making new friends is hard. But that’s only one bad side. With the move to Sacramento, my family and I are exposed to so much more places to discover in our new area. Sacramento’s midtown is one of our favorite places. This past afternoon the kids and I were casually walking around Midtown, and…

Sac Urban Art + Yelp Eats

One major appreciation I’ve been enjoying here in Sacramento is the street art! In every city, urban art is what adds to a cities identity and culture. Oakland, New York, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, you name it…It’s everywhere. For me, simple living, lesser crowds and culture has such a huge factor. I guess its the introvert in myself. I find myself exploring downtown Sacramento alone a lot….

Sacramento Coffee Roasters

After traveling to cool cities like Seattle, Portland, and Cincinnati, I’ve grown to appreciate coffee in a different light. I’m no coffee connoisseur, but Derrick is. As a family, we’ve visited so many different coffee shops, and coffee roasters, its hard to pick a favorite. There are many ways of reviewing a coffee roaster. From their black coffee alone to lattes, then to their amazing teas. ….
