I missed you Internet.

Hello, again. It's me Reagan. Yea, I am still alive. So a little update (more for me and Sam and our records). Sam left for San Francisco on the 19th of June and I was planning on staying in Utah for the next 3 weeks while he looked for an apartment and I packed up our stuff. So I spent my time with all my siblings who were in town for the summer. Those few weeks were full of some of my favorite things- family, baking and the sunny outdoors.

Then I got a little surprise. Sam showed up at midnight on the Friday of 4th of July weekend. I don't think I have ever been given such an amazing surprise or ever felt so happy! Me and Leigh just starred at him for the 20 minutes after he arrived. I had 2 weeks without him and that day I had been missing him the most and had told Leigh all about it. It was beyond perfect.

Well, the 4th weekend was awesome and I love it so much when family is in town. Isn't maggie a dream! Her mom Emily busted that outfit out the night before the 4th. It rocks my world. A week later I flew out to San Francisco and since out stuff isn't here yet (and wont be for about another week), me and Sam have been enjoying our time out in the city, cause there is nothing to do at home! We eat dinner on the floor and it makes us happy.

Living in the city is so much fun. Our apartment is walking distance from everywhere. We are just around the corner from H&M and all the great shopping. There is delicious restaurants everywhere and so many new places to explore.

Since I don't have a job yet and am still searching I spend my free time exploring San Francisco, checking out items from my library, and also volunteering on Alcatrez. Every Wednesday and Friday I take a ferry over with the other volunteers and we weed the grounds. I also can explore the island as much as I want for free. It is so fun, I have met so many amazing people.

Artichokes growing on the island. I even met a guy who was there signing books, who grew up on the island (his dad was one of the officers over the prison).

The island is full of flowers from all over the world. Gardening was a big thing on the island for the families and also for some of the prisoners.

A little side note. This male strip club is just down the street from us on our same block, aren't we a lucky pair.

Well we are beginning our culinary quest to eat at all the best restaurants in San Francisco and our first stop was Katana-Ya. It is just a couple blocks from us and is know for its Ramen noodles. Although the line was way too long, it was very delicious.

O and btw I am a Ginger now, and both me and Sam love it. If you can't tell then just picture me red, cause I am.

I love it! Thank goodness you have internet again cause I need some serious posting. So, City Bakery may have had the best cookies I have ever eaten...and the Doughnut Plant was HANDS DOWN the best doughnuts I've ever had. Thanks so much for the list--I'm lovin' it! Your life looks really really exciting. I want more pics of the apt...but I guess maybe that can wait til you get your stuff. i can't wait to come visit someday!

You volunteer at Alcatraz. That is so cool. If I was running that place, I would hire you as a full-time gardener. Just FYI

I'm glad you have internet again. I've missed you. :) I like your new life. sounds fun and adventurous. I wish I had a little more adventure going on in my life. I'm pretty boring. Well That men's strip club was nasty. Looks like you'll have some fun stories to tell.

Emily said...

What an adventure. Some of my fondest memories are eating on the floor because we didn't have a table. It made us feel like real adults for some reason. I hope that I'll be able to come out and visit. You are a beautiful ginger.

and yes, Maggie is a freaking dream

Dude, I'm into the eating on the floor! And there is nothing better than surprises!! People should only do surprises and nothing else.

Gurl! I'm into the red!
