Splashed across page 6 of […]

Bananas are one of those love-it-or-hate-it fruits, and I happen to love it. However.. I only like bananas if they’re a certain texture and ripeness.

A couple weeks ago I attended the BlogHer ’14 conference in San Jose, CA. Since San Jose is only a couple hours from me, I drove down early and decided I would explore the city for a little bit before my friends showed up.  It wasn’t until I was down there in downtown San Jose […]
