A few of weeks ago, we were invited to try Centro Bar & Kitchen’s NEW menu! We had just gotten back from a weekend full of no-tech, so I was so excited to pick up my camera to get some shots of the new food and drinks! Let me tell you, it was amazing! Check out the new menu (PS – I realize this is probably hard to fully read, but I really just love the look of the photo and Kit’s wedding band, so you can check out the clearer menu here): Hibiscus Pisco Sour Centro started us off with this Hibiscus Pisco Sour, which was pretty yummy! I am a very slow drinker though, and didn’t love how the flower petals started getting in my straw/in my mouth, but if you are a quick drinker, it is really good! Plus, the little details that Centro takes for the topping of the drink are amazing! Hamachi + Ahi Poke The first dish they brought out was the Hamachi + let me tell you, I do not like raw fish (with the exception of Ebi and Ahi – do those count?). However, I am always up for trying something new and this hamachi was so fresh and delicious, I could have eaten 10 more! Thanks for being partners with Sierra Gold Seafood – best fish here!…

I know some of you have been curious about all the changes you’ve been seeing on the blog! Well, we have made a decision to completely rebrand. The process was amazing with Salt Design Co. and I cant thank them enough. I’ve been blogging under my maiden name Leanna Ranieri, but we’ve completely rebranded the name to Change With Us and to be honest, I couldn’t be happier. We are all about changing not only the world around us, but ourselves and it seemed like the perfect time to do, once we got married. Why the Rebrand? The rebrand just felt right and by adding Kit, my husband to the blog I believe there is an opportunity for our readers to see our different personalities. Don’t worry we will still have lifestyle posts including some style, DIY, and design – but they will also have a more raw feel to it. Let’s be REAL Ya know why? Because we are over fluffing it up, we are over trying to have this perfect social media presence – ya know the pressure stay relevant because it’s harder in today’s society to feel like you are enough. We are focusing on being authentic and real with readers about life. Life is a hot, stressful mess and this will be a place to connect with people going through the…

The past few months, Kit and I have really embraced using our tech mindfully. You know, by having real, genuine conversations without our phones in our face – yeah, that kind! Our new thing is to phone stack at meals (when we forget to be mindful) and we put our phones down the second we get in bed. We are trying to implement a sunset hour for our tech, but haven’t gotten there yet, who has?! In comes the Camp Out Yonder Recap! A couple weeks ago, Kit, myself, and our bestie, Lorian ventured to Camp Out Yonder for the weekend. Camp is a mindful, tech-free campout for adults, and this year it was hosted at Grizzly Creek Ranch in California. I guess we should back up a bit…. Rewind to July I was at a networking event and Nellie, owner of Camp Out Yonder, was the speaker that night. Let’s just say it was fate that she not only spoke, but that I was able to meet her! Anyways, Nellie is ALL about mindful-tech and I felt like she just understood the struggles of technology using us instead of using it what it was meant for and that’s it! She’s giving everyone some great tips and knowledge and I’m just in heaven. Then, there it was – she was giving away a ticket to…

Happy Wednesday ya’ll! When K and I got engaged, we knew the season of wedding planning for us would soon begin. Between wedding registry’s, bridal shows, and multiple vendors it seemed only fit for us to create an exclusive wedding email to use so we wouldn’t get bombarded with wedding emails in our professional email as well as in our deals/junk email.  It is really easy to create a wedding email…. that is if you know what you want your email to be!  We chose to create a Gmail account through Google as it is user friendly, free, and easily accessible on all devices.  How to Create A Wedding Email Go to www.mail.google.com Click “Create Account”  If you are already logged in to your personal Gmail account, click your profile photo in the top right corner and click “Add Account”. Create an account. Use one of your names (or your future name for the information part and then create your username! I love that they give examples and tell you if you it is taken or not.Some common emails I have seen used for weddings include examples like: thecarsonwedding carsonwedding or carsonwedding2015 kitandleanna carsonstietheknot You can always add the date or a short word if there is a username you really want but it isn’t available.  “Agree” to Google’s terms and conditions “Submit” + your wedding…
