Today I just wanted to do a quick post to share some photos from our Anniversary morning spent at Balboa Island in Newport Beach. For our Anniversary last month, we had originally planned to go camping … but with Al’s nagging back injury, we decided that sleeping on the ground wouldn’t be such a good idea … More 5.30 A Morning on Balboa Island
I’ve been putting these posts off for way too long, and funnily enough, it’s not the writing that I’ve been putting off … it’s been the thought of having to narrow down my photos from the hundreds that I took, to just a few … that’s honestly the hardest part, ha! Death Valley, the largest … More 5.24 Our Death Valley Weekend: Day One
The month of April was full of reunions with friends, our two year anniversary, and lots of walks through our little neighborhood — marveling at all of the beautiful flowers in full springtime bloom! It’s been spent riding bikes in the morning and taking in beach sunsets in the evening, and soaking in all of … More 5.12 April’s Lookback List
With the end of March, comes the end of one of my most demanding shows … meaning the long hours have subsided (for now!) and I feel like I have a couple weeks to get my home-life back together before the craziness picks up again! I’ve been soaking up all the time I’ve gotten back … More 4.9.19 A Lookback to March
Today I’m sharing some photos from a day trip my friend Gabby and I took to Joshua Tree National Park in February! We went right after the Government shutdown, and I was happy to see that most of the park was back in good condition, albeit a few damaged Joshua Trees 😦 But other than … More 3.27 Gabby’s First Time at Joshua Tree — Day Trippin’ It!
Well, it’s a whole month late but I am finally sitting down to write February’s Lookback … the months of February and March have almost been a blur amidst a crazy-insane work schedule that have included extra long days and lots of weekend shifts. And any time not spent working, I’ve tried to fill up with … More 3.26 An Extremely Late February Lookback
If you’ve been following along on my last few posts, you know that Alex and I agreed to gift one another experiences this last Christmas. In my last post, you can read all about Al’s experience to me: an evening blending wine at The Blending Lab. For my gift to Al, I knew right away what I … More 2.28 Rock Climbing with REI
As I mentioned in a previous post, this last Christmas was the first Christmas that Alex and I spent just the two of us in California! We knew it was going to be a very different sort of holiday for us, so we wanted to do something a little more special for gift-giving this year. … More 2.6.19 The Blending Lab, LA’s Newest and Coolest Winery!
January is always one of my favorite months of the year because I love jumping back into that “normal life” schedule again after the holidays, and as much as people love to complain about “New Years Resolutioners”…I love to hear about peoples’ hopes and dreams and goals for the new year! This year, aside from … More 2.2.19 January in Review
It’s hard to believe that Christmas has now officially been over a full month ago! Sometimes it feels like the last couple months of the year can really blend together, and maybe a lot of that is due to the anticipation of the holidays — of reconnecting with family and old friends from back home. … More 1.27.19 Our (first) Little West Coast Christmas
