foodie friday: wildcraft pizza

One of the things I love most about the area I live in is that Downtown Culver City is just minutes away. While this small strip of restaurants and bars is a gem in and of itself, I find myself wanting to venture down there even more since Wildcraft Pizza opened at the beginning of the year. My friend Alex and I finally made it to this hot spot a few weeks ago, and we're still talking about how delectable the food was. And not to mention how cozy and adorable the space is.

Wildcraft boasts an eclectic menu of small bites, salads, veggies, entrees, and of course, sourdough neapolitan pizzas. I'm always impressed with a place that offers an array of both red and white pizzas, and Wildcraft's menu boasts many clever yet simple options in both categories. Alex and I struggled to select what to order because everything looked (and smelled) phenomenal. We decided to try a couple different small plates and pies so we could get a good feel for the menu, and it turned out to be a great idea (obviously).

Not To Be Missed:
'15 minutes of fame' garlic knots, burrata, goat cheese white pizza (we added prosciutto), truffle white pizza

I have yet to try any of the red pizzas, but I already have my eye on the spicy sausage and the carnage. Looks like I'm due for another visit very soon! If you're into pizza (and let's face it, who isn't?), this place is definitely worth checking out.

Whoa. Hey there, friends. Long time, no talk...am I right? My apologies for being 100% absentee for the last, you know, month...life has been absolutely crazy busy. I realize that isn't an excuse, but the truth is I had to put the blog on the back-burner for a while so I could focus on other things. And while it was a necessity, my goodness does it feel wonderful to be back!

The major thing I should catch you up on is I think I actually made a turn into adulthood. I've fought it for a long time, but recently I had to make the biggest decision I've ever made in my life thus far, and it was at that moment I realized I'm not a kid anymore. Insert panic attack here.  The details of this decision are insignificant, but I can happily say I'm confident with the path I chose. I'm actually looking forward to everything around the corner now, when I was almost dreading them before. Granted, the second something goes wrong (which, let's face it, always does in life), I'm sure I'll be eating those words and wishing for my childhood again. Not that I do that.

Another update is that Kristin moved back in with us roomies! You might remember reading about her year in London, but now she's back in L.A. and we're holding her hostage.

These photos were taken over Memorial Day weekend (so hey, not that long ago!), when the beau and I took a little jaunt to Coronado Island for the day. It felt like a mini-vacation: we strolled along the boardwalk, sipped some bubbly, listened to some live music at the Hotel del, and soaked in the sunshine. It was just the low-key day I'd needed for many weeks.
I have to be cheesy and dedicate this post to the beau--he's been on my case at least twice a week about updating, so this one's for you love! P.S. Isn't he cute? :)

Have a great Thursday, lovelies.
