May included: a time lapse of my 100 Day Project (progress pictures here), backyard blueberries, nighttime sewing, blooming succulents that live outside my front door, long hair!, shorter hair after a cut, the view outside my yoga studio, light after work, the sound of the trees outside my parking garage, using my Mom’s iron (the same one she’s always had) over Mother’s Day, laying out my blocks to date, squash blossoms in my backyard, more blueberry progress, spooky afternoon weather, Friday night concerts in the park, stillness, Trader Joe’s peony season, more sewing, neighbor’s sunshade in the wind, a wildly successful thrifting night for a craft project, Midtown sunshine after therapy, moving my apartment furniture around to better fit my Dinner Party, gorgeous roses near my place, breakfast at Bacon and Butter with my parents, my new rainbow tomato cages, Midtown flowers, frozen waffles in my toaster oven, lunch from Mother, my first 100 degree day, one of my favorite summer fruits: nectarines, and Fieldwork beers in Berkeley.
One of my favorite aspects of living in Sacramento is how there is always something going on. I'm extra lucky, in that, Jason works for an organization that is active in the community. Last Saturday we spent the day soaking up all this city of ours had to offer.
In the morning, we walked in the Sac Pride Parade, celebrating the LGBTQ community. It was a new experience - to be a participant, and something I'll never forget. While we were downtown, we checked out the progress on the new Kings Arena, too.
After the parade we ate brunch at a hot-spot, Bacon & Butter. It was my first time going to their new location and I only wish I took more pictures of the food, and decor. The little league team that they sponsor was celebrating their winning season all together at a nearby table. (Check out the name on the back of their uniforms!) The food was excellent and worth the wait. Guess who also stopped by B&B on this Saturday afternoon? Mr. Sacramento himself, Major Kevin Johnson!
We ended our day of ALL things Sacramento with a trip to Bonney Field at Cal Expo to watch the Sacramento Republic FC. Because of Jason's endless connections we got to watch from the VIP section with friends, and hang out on the field after the game. I mean, what would a soccer match be without some post game selfies on the field?
Sunday we napped and ate Chipotle. Because, balance. And that is how you do Sacramento in June.
