  • Same restaurant, same table, same guy, 3 years apart 😌🍝🥂👬 We went to this restaurant for our first dinner together in San Francisco, back in summer 2016. Ian was an intern out here, and I still lived in New York but came to visit him. Fast forward, and we’re finishing up two years living in this city! 😯 Last night, we went back to this same spot for my LAST ever dinner (!) living in San Francisco before I go get an MBA this fall. Lots has happened between these two photos: a world-altering presidential election... Brexit... three seasons of Stranger Things. But through it all, I’m so glad the person by my side hasn’t changed. 🤗❤️❤️❤️

  • I created a Twitter account over the weekend—only 10 years late! 😅📱Over the last few years, I’ve sometimes struggled to share ideas and thoughts and views of the world through Instagram, a visual-based medium. I’ve felt that sharing articles or advocating for an issue necessitate an accompanying image—which can often cheapen the idea or message. I think Twitter is a good solution for some of these problems. I’m a bit late to the game, but I’m excited to share more impressions of the world and have interesting conversations! 😃 I’ll still post on Instagram, but expect I might be more active on Twitter for a while. If you’re on Twitter, check me out—if for nothing else than to tell me if I’m doing it right 😂

  • We were at a wedding last weekend, and this passage from Les Miserables was read during the ceremony. I thought it was beautiful: “You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving. The great acts of love are done by those who are habitually performing small acts of kindness. We pardon to the extent that we love. Love is knowing that even when you are alone, you will never be lonely again. And the great happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved. Loved for ourselves. And even loved in spite of ourselves.” My phone reminded me today that this photo was taken exactly two years ago 🤯 It’s hard to believe! Time has flown by, and sadly we’re spending this summer behind desks rather than exploring Italy and consuming way too much pizza & wine 🍕🍷🌿🇮🇹 But although we’re in a different stage of life, I’m grateful to (still) have this guy by my side 😌👬

  • Happy spring! 😊 It’s been a little while since I’ve posted here. Over the past few months, I’ve taken a break from Instagram. There are a lot of things that I love about social media: it can create inclusive, empowered communities; it provides us each with a voice and a platform; it helps us share positivity and kindness. Maybe most importantly, it gives us lots of photos of cute babies and puppies. But there are also negative parts of social media. We feel pressure to share only the highlights of our lives, and pressure to look and act in curated or unrealistic ways. At times, I’ve found my mood and happiness linked to likes or followers, which aren’t metrics by which I want to define my life. I’m still inspired by the connectivity and empowerment that social media enable, but it’s important for me to take breaks to remember its limitations as well. Social media can be a great complement to our lives—introducing us to wonderful people and new ways of thinking—but it should never be a replacement for the richness of the relationships and experiences that make life worth living ❤️

  • When leaders project hate and prejudice, hate and prejudice become normalized and rationalized.

  • My New Year’s resolution for 2018 was to read more. Over the years, books have helped me build empathy and better understand different ways of thinking and seeing the world. But as life got busier, I‘d found myself spending less time reading. Last year, I got into the habit of reading for at least 15 minutes before bed each night—it was one of the best parts of my day. Here are some of my favorite books that I read in 2018 📚🐛 Let me know what I should add to the reading list for 2019 😊

  • This past Saturday, we spent the day at the SF-Marin Food Bank in San Francisco, in the Potrero Hill neighborhood 🍎🍌🍊🍉🥝 The Food Bank’s mission is ambitious and admirable: to eradicate hunger in San Francisco and Marin. Today, one in four San Franciscans is at risk of hunger and 210,000 locals rely on the Food Bank. Volunteers are vital to the organization’s success in reaching its mission, and are particularly important during the holiday season. Learn more about how to get involved at www.twohandsblog.com ❤️🌁

  • Growing up, my dad always called us the “Three Musketeers”👨‍👦‍👦 I couldn’t have asked for two better people to challenge me, inspire me, support me, and love me—unconditionally. I feel incredibly thankful to spend another Thanksgiving with them (we haven’t missed one yet!) ☺️❤️ We don’t have a photo from today, so here’s one from Christmas last year—hopefully my Olaf sweater puts you in the holiday spirit 😉☃️🎄
