    PACKING FOR PALM SPRINGS

    I’m heading out to Palm Springs this weekend for 5 days for a photography retreat with some of my favorite photography friends. I’m so excited but with the mood swings that SoCal weather has been having, I’m finding it so difficult to pack. When I think of Palm Springs, I think of color and mod-architecture, Palm Trees and bougainvillea lined streets, sunshine and cacti, so much cacti… I don’t think of 40 degree temps at night and chilly pools…

      PALM SPRINGS | A DAY TRIP

       Day trips are our jam! I was feeling in a rut and I think it’s because we hadn’t traveled in a while. Day tripping all over Southern California has been a favorite past time since we moved here. The scenery is so diverse, you can be at the beach and then drive to a snowy mountain within 3 hours! I absolutely love…

        PISMO BEACH | TRAVELING WITH KIDS

        Last month, the babes and I took a little weekend trip up through the central coast of California. Traveling with kids is never easy but it’s always so worth it. It was such an amazing trip and has my itching to get back up there and explore more. We started the trip off in Pismo Beach and the drive up from San Diego was amazing. The babes did great once we got through LA and the views along…

          TRAVELING IN COMFORT

          Can y’all believe it’s November? I feel like last month just flew right by. November and December are usually really heavy travel months for us with holiday travel and visiting family to having family visit us and showing them all around San Diego. Between road trips, train travel, and a few trips to the airport, one thing I always rely on is comfortable travel…

            A DAY IN JULIAN | TRAVEL

            We headed up to Julian on Monday to spend the day exploring. It’s such a great little town but every time we’ve headed up there, we were limited by nap times or traffic or something else. We’ve never actually walked around the downtown area and taken time to stroll into the stores. We’ve always gone with a direct agenda and then headed home so it was nice to just meander!
            We started off the morning with a little shoot for…

              MINI-MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE | LAKE ARROWHEAD

              Y’all! Fall is upon us and I’m longing to head back up to the mountains and Lake Arrowhead. We had the best time on our trip last month, a few crazy moments, no near death experiences, and only a few meltdowns! Totally calling it a good trip considering it was a 4 to 2, kid to mom ratio! We stayed at the cutest little spot with some really amazing views and even though I do wish we stayed…

                CATALINA ISLAND | A DAY TRIP

                We love day trips! Who doesn’t? You get to travel, far enough from home that it feels exciting but still close enough to home that you can be back in your bed by night fall! It’s the perfect balance for the traveler with toddler twins =) Last week we headed out to Catalina Island for a day trip! We partnered up with Catalina Island Company to highlight how easy and fun a daytrip to the island is! I…
