I have discovered my absolute favorite new artist, the talented 21 year old Sam Smith. Sam is from the UK and can be heard on popular tracks such as Latch and La La La. His vocals chill me to the bone and are on repeat all day. He has recently released is own EP and here he is singing Lay Me Down from that.
He will be performing in Los Angeles at the Troubadour on December 3rd. Tickets go on sale today at 1pm.
This past weekend, I met up with a couple of my best friends in San Francisco. Val lives there and Chelsea met us down from Seattle for a girls weekend. Although we didn’t run the Nike Women’s Marathon like last year, we had the chance to catch up and work on an exciting collaboration.
Val showed us around her new home, Berkeley and gave us a tour of the new school she is working at through Teach For America. It is so great to see all the amazing work and progress my friends are making out of college. A weekend filled with sushi, shopping and snuggles; I couldn’t have asked for more.
I have been very bad at posting lately. But, I have a reason. I have been EXTREMELY busy at work and on weekends visiting friends. Two weeks ago I had the pleasure to make my way up to Oregon to see my best friend (and what other people consider my twin!) and revisit the city I used to live in. We had a fun-filled weekend with visits to my favorite restaurants, helping with Special Olympics and seeing the Timbers beat the Sounders. While spending quality time with my current friends, I also had the chance to make some wonderful new friends. Portland, I will be back soon!
