Chapter 24!

Before my birthday fades into a distant memory, I wanted to use this milestone to fill you guys in on my life! Continue reading “Chapter 24!”

Adventures at Deep Creek Hot Springs!

Deep Creek Hot Springs is the perfect little adventure. Just around a 2 hour drive from the Orange County/LA area, this place is great when you want a change of scenery but don’t have a ton of time for a vacation. I went for the first time in September of 2016 & have been trying to get back there since! This past Labor Day weekend [2017] I made it back for my 2nd adventure at Deep Creek!

Relaxing & Rejuvenating at Integratron!

As I was planing my trip to Joshua Tree, I wanted to check out what other attractions were in the area. I remembered seeing photos of this strange dome building in the desert, & began stocking Instagram to learn more. Unsure exactly what it was, I soon learned this place was called Integratron & people went there for Sound Baths. I am always open to trying different methods of relaxation (who doesn’t want to feel more peaceful & rejuvenated?) So I organized a trip to Integratron!

A Day at the Lavender Festival!

If you have ever read my About page you may remember that one day I want to have a farm! So this place was basically a dream come true! Having never heard or seen anything about the 123 Farm, I had no idea what to expect. But it blew me away, complete with a lavender breeze!

Desert X- Mirage

Mirror mirror on the wall who’s the fairest one of all? Well when it comes to the 2017 Desert X installations, id say Mirage by Doug Aitken takes the cake! This place was packed when I went. There were even people filming a video! But I am so glad I made the stop. Despite the crowds this was beautiful & worth the trip!

Moorten Botanical Garden

For as long as I can remember my family & I have been going to Palm Springs. That is why when I heard of Moorten Botanical Garden for the first time last year I was shocked I hadn’t discovered this magical place sooner!  Continue reading “Moorten Botanical Garden”

Desert X – The Circle of Land & Sky

For as long as I can remember art has held a special place in my heart. When I was very young my mom painted the walls of my bedroom to look like a garden. She even painted pretty scenes at my preschool. When I was in elementary school we did The Pageant of the Arts! It was a show the 4th & 5th graders put on. Each kid would get a costume & learn a dance that matched a famous Artist’s painting. Together we put on a performance that would bring the art to life & taught us the value of art at a very young age. Continue reading “Desert X – The Circle of Land & Sky”

Skiing Big Bear Mountain

Growing up I loved to ski! But as I got older, ski trips were few and far between. I have been meaning to make it out to the mountains & I finally did for my friend Rachel’s birthday!

Working full-time I decided it would be best to go up for one night. So I left Seal Beach, CA at 7:00am Saturday. The drive flew by & before I knew it I was winding up the mountain to meet everyone at the cabin we rented on Airbnb. Not long after my arrival we were ready to hit the slopes!

A Quick Trip to Colorado

Denver Colorado is full of breweries serving up flights of different beers. It’s the perfect place for a social drinker like myself or the most experienced beer connoisseur. So when my boyfriend said he wanted to visit one of his friends in Denver, I was in!

Let me start by saying drinking beer is not my favorite activity. I love the social aspects, but typically I get sick of drinking after a brew or two. However, I LOVE samples. And whether it’s at Baskin Robbins or a Brewery,  I’ll try every flavor they give me!
