Planning for France-Spain

We fly into Nice and have successfully booked lodging — airbnb for the win AGAIN! — in Antibes for our first two nights. We then head to Martigues for 4 nights so we can fully explore the region. We have yet to solidify any sort of itinerary for this region yet, so feel free to…

Labor Day Reflections

August was a month of family time and jaunts with friends. I was lucky enough to visit the cutest little town of Kingston TWICE in one month. Which also means I had two experiences at the Mossback Cafe. That’s a whole nother post though, so I’ll get back to that later. I don’t know if…

Tickets Booked!

Oh man — I struggle to find the right words to express the excitement I feel when international flights are booked. Do you get that same ball of excitement and joy in your tummy, too?? We’re now confirmed for an adventure in the south of France, coastal Spain, Barcelona, and Madrid late this fall. A…

The Stones!

We’re in AZ for the rescheduled Rolling Stones concert. Whew, it’s HOT here!! Fortunately we’ve had ample time in the pool and a/c, so we could fully enjoy some quality time with family here in the desert. We’re excited for music with friends tonight and S. Rad is super stoked on seeing the Stones live…

Recent Radventures

Wow, the Pacific Northwest does not disappoint! Views, nature, blooming flowers, water, TREES…it’s quite spectacular. And we’ve been able to get some awesome exploring in. Here’s the highlight reel of one of our recent trips: Sequim, WA (pronounced squim): awesome dry(er) region on the peninsula that is the largest producer of lavender in the U.S….

WA for the summer!

Growing up in the sunshine and warm desert living of Arizona, I don’t think I ever considered Washington state to be a place I may reside. But I also didn’t think I’d marry an adorable guy I’d met in the 5th grade. Never know what the future may hold, right?!? On our trek north from…

El Salvador, here we come!

This pic was from our trip to Belize, which was AMAZING! It was a few years ago, just days after we got engaged. It was a magical trip to say the least! One night we caught a sunset and movie at this fab spot located about a mile north of San Pedro called the Truck…

Holiday giving

I’m struggling with gift choices for people in my life I love the most, why is that? Do you have any recommendations for dad, brother and husband gifts? I always feel stumped with what to get these men in my life…

And that’s a wrap!

I’ve been working in the Oakland Federal Courthouse for the past 4+ weeks on a trial that is now at the mercy of the jury. Fingers crossed it goes our way!! I write this as I sit in a cafe near the train station awaiting my train ride home. And I’ll tell ya, this feeling…

Giving Thanks

Full week ahead of work for both S Rad and I, so I’ve been thinking of how on Thursday I will transition the continued mode of giving we are in (i.e. work, serving others 🙂 to a mode of giving thanks to ourselves in the form of peaceful, downtime together as a family, even if…

Not sure why?!

Over two years ago I reserved the domain theradventures.com… Fast forward to September 2017 as I contemplated building a website for my paralegal consulting business, the domain reservation was a memory lost deep in my filing cabinet (Super Brain anyone?). As AA and I developed our branding and (re)naming campaign, I had an epiphany …THERADVENTURES…

Feed Me, Seymour

One of S-Rad’s nicknames for me is mouse –> I’m a small, food-driven mammal who in some way or another is thinking of food at any and every given moment. Planning dinner while eating breakfast, thinking of what the lunch menu may include too… We’re new to the central valley area, so I did some…
