Today I just wanted to do a quick post to share some photos from our Anniversary morning spent at Balboa Island in Newport Beach.

Today I just wanted to share some photos that I took during our little morning trip to the Vasquez Rocks to hike with the pups!

Over the last two weeks, I was lucky enough to get some time off of work to take a night class and expand some of my #worklifeknowledge! And with that night class, then, came free daylight hours! I took advantage of my time off by spending as much time outside as humanly possible. And one … More 11.14 Four Hikes for your Four-Legged Friends
Last weekend, Alex and I found ourselves with an open Sunday. We had zero plans, the neighbors were out of town, and Al was coming off of a long week at work.
