Farmer’s Fix

Farmer’s Fix

Farmer’s Fix is a relatively new salad delivery service in San Diego. They pride themselves on fresh, organic ingredients delivered straight to your door. Each salad is $10 and depending on how many you order, there may be a shipping charge of $6. As of now you can order 3, 4, or 5+ salads per week.

Holsem Coffee – North Park

It’s been almost a month with my new camera and so far I am really digging it.

What the… huh?!  There’s a casino in Chula Vista?

Yes, there is!  The Seven Mile Casino is just south of the 54 freeway and nestled between E & F Streets along Bay Blvd.  While the casino has been in existence for decades and had a long history in the city, this newer property we visited has only been opened for a year.

California Pizza Kitchen – Fashion Valley

Ever since my old DSLR (almost 10 years!) decided it was time to retire, I have been on a hunt for a more compact mirrorless camera I can take around whenever we eat out or when we go on vacation. The Sony a6300 had my eye and I was one Amazon click away from it being at my front door. I took a took a complete 180 and eventually settled on the Olympus OM-D E-M5. California Pizza Kitchen was the first outing I got to use my new toy and I hope to learn my way around the new controls and features soon.…
