Do You Believe in Magic?

Back in January, Dave and I spent a weekend at the Magical Disneyland… and I did not post anything of the adventure. However, I have a few photos and thoughts that I just need to share : ) I truly believe everyone should have a person in his or her world that just makes the…

Selfie Seals

The last stop on Bri’s San Diego tour was the La Jolla coves. I love La Jolla because of all the adorable mom and pop shops that line the oceanfront, the way the water seems just a little bit bluer on this side of town and of course, the seals that dot the beaches. Our…

Beautiful Balboa

Cliché as it may seem, one of the staple ‘must-see’s’ of San Diego is Balboa Park. The stunning 1,200-acre park with its Spanish influenced architecture is a treat to walk around and see for any tourist or local. Bri and I headed there Tuesday morning so she could see what exactly made this place so…

Three Sisters Waterfall

The apartment was pitch black, but in the distance I could see the music room light on- signaling two things; that I must have slept through my alarm and that it was time to go. It was Sunday morning, our neighbors upstairs had just recently passed out from their rowdy Saturday night but we were…

The Christmas List

“I need your list…” my mother threatens me again as if that will make me suddenly create a list in my mind of materialistic items I desire.  Sure, I could probably come up with a list of fashionable, practical, designer and beautiful things that would be nice to have. But, I don’t need any of it.…

my favorite love story.

Three years ago 12-13-12; my life changed in the absolute best way possible. I was at Minneapolis International Airport- posted <—- this photo,    boarded a plane and headed to Charlottesville, Virginia. I was completely unaware of what my weekend held but I knew fully well it was going to be an adventure. I had…

Balboa Park – December Nights

The most wonderful time of the year- Christmas season has finally dawned upon us. And, even where the sun shines all the time and the weather rarely drops below forty degrees- it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Though we are missing the snow and cool weather, and spend our days on the beaches…
