seeking adventures

I do a lot of thinking in my car during my commute to work. I thought one day that I need to intentionally seek out adventures. I need to plan ahead, need to plan fun trips and need to take some time off.   I am ready to take on new adventures. Actually, I’ve been […]

This past weekend, we headed to the beautiful Kern River area and set up tent at a campsite right next to the water. We went water rafting. We got thrown off our raft after we hit a rock and went down this rapid on my back. Ouch! It wouldn’t be camping without making any smores. […]

One of the main reasons that I started this blog was to have an online journal that I can look back years from now and be reminded of the things I did, foods I ate and places I went. I’ve always enjoyed reading other blog posts that were similar to a journal entry. I enjoy […]

Anytime there is a window of time that we can travel, we jump on the opportunity to do it. Three day holiday weekend coming up? Why not go on a road trip. We headed away from Orange County and drove north along the Pacific Coast highway. First stop on the road trip is the Danish […]

Mammoth (Part I) and WIAW

We started our trip to Mammoth before the crack of dawn this year. Chris and I had a 4am wake up call. Our friends met us at our house and we left by 6am. We bypassed L.A.’s morning gridlock and drove thru Mojave a few hours later. We passed by the airplane graveyard. I thought […]

Lake View

(this is a test post from my phone. I apologize for any errors in the format) We drove 5 hours away from home and found ourselves in the middle of this. Where the snow meets water. Where I dug out my winter clothes, in the middle of summer, to pack for this trip. I’m blogging […]

Pampering and Partying

What a whirlwind of a week it has been. It was busy, busy with back to back events. It was so much fun, it went by so fast but I wouldn’t have it any other way. In a week, I had my bridal shower, celebrated my 30th birthday, ran a 10K for She Runs L.A. and […]

This morning, the fiance and I left town for an overnight weekend getaway to celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend 🙂 This was the view I enjoyed while the fiance drove us to our destination. The coastal beaches were busy. We drove for an hour and half and just arrived here. Beautiful sunshine and warm breeze greeted […]

That’s Amore

600 miles and 24 hours later, I am home sweet home. I don’t know when I’ve felt more tired, driving solo for 4 hours or the morning after a long race? 4 hours is the longest time I have ever been driven straight and I did it twice in the last 24 hours.  I did the […]

Tender Greens

This past weekend, the fiance and I drove to San Diego to jump start the holiday season. We had a Thanksgiving party with my college friends. Let the holiday feasting begin. It rained all weekend in San Diego, but the skies did clear up around Sunday afternoon. On Sunday, we had lunch at Tender Greens […]
