SD weekend trip (day 202)

One of my best friends just moved to San Diego, and has been asking for visitors since she left. San Diego really is its own world- it’s so far from everything else. And I’m not just saying that because I think anything farther than 20 minutes is too much. SD really is far. Anyway! Since I have a free couple weeks (eek!) I took the weekend to go down and see her. It worked out because our little trio was completed when Olivia came too.

It was SUCH a fun weekend. Super laid back and chill. We got dinner at Patio on Lamont, ice cream at Baked Bear, then went to PB for the night. On sunday, the other girls went to Pride and I headed to the beach. I hadn’t been to San Diego in years and I was pleasantly surprised that I remember a lot of the streets and I was able to navigate back to my favorite beach (La Jolla Shores) without any maps.

It was gloomy, but beautiful. I only enjoyed about an hour of good weather before it started pouring. Trying to get back to the car with all my stuff was kind of a mess, but I love the rain so I didn’t mind. Traffic getting home was brutal, but it was worth it for such a great weekend with my college besties.

I’m off on another trip tomorrow that I am crazy excited for. Until next time! xoxo

One day I looked over and realized I could be happy with this man for the rest of my life.
So I packed my car and moved 250 miles away and didn’t tell him.
Good thinking.

(day 195)

I woke up this morning asking myself, “What do I have to do today?” I remembered it was Tuesday… and for a minute, I couldn’t think of what was different about my life on this morning.

And then I remembered.

And then I smiled.

And then I went back to sleep for another twenty minutes.

It was brilliant.

LA things, part 1 (190)

Still not totally sold on this city, but I guess there are some parts that aren’t so bad…

The beach is cool and all, but I just stood there in the sand thinking, “Eh.”
  Culver City steps ↑ and the view from the top↓.

  And the Thursday farmer’s market in Westwood, complete with mountains of plums↑ (my favorite fruit) and make-your-own-corn station↓. 

I’ll keep an open mind, but for now the verdict is still desert > beach.

4th of July! (day 186)

I hope everyone had a good day celebrating America’s birthday! I definitely felt more proud to be an American this year after the monumental changes that were made in the past two weeks.

I spent my day with friends and family. First a bbq (that was really just a girls gossip sesh) with some of my college bests, and then time with family playing with sparklers.
