Exciting Announcement

     This has been the longest week for me. I've been battling a case of the flu/sore throat/ fever/ i.don' sickness. The weather seems to love playing the 'Today I'm feeling a high a 50 degrees-go ahead and wear your spring jacket', to next day 'Today I'm feeling the below 10 degrees- you're going to die once you step outside your door' type of game. And I'm obviously the one that falls for it. -___- 
     Regardless, I've been keeping myself busy working on a project and today I am super super excited to reveal what it is! Okay after a few months of working and designing it, I am so happy to announce (drum roll pleaseee) official website is live today!!! Feel free to check it out by pressing the link below, oh and spreading the love. =) I hope you're having a great day...Happy Thursday =)

Lucky 5

     Oh it seems as if these months are quickly passing by....can you believe we're already in mid February?! Besides waking up with a voice that could imitate Scream yesterday, a glimpse of the sun shining on the snow covered ground made me feel a little less under the weather. This time of the year around the north eastern states, the weather can be quite unpredictable. One day you'll have to make sure to have enough salt for a snow apocalypse, and the next with a slight rise in the temperature---you're digging in your closet for last year's flip flops ready to hit the beach. -_____- 
     Regardless, I've been keeping busy and in-between my mind drifts off to some far away island, and there I am sipping on an iced Piña Colada with a beautiful view of the ocean right in front of me. Ahh yes, the mind sure does play tricks on us sometimes. Here are a few lucky 5 photos of the week...hope you're having a great weekend, Happy Saturday!

A California Summer

     About 2 summers ago, I packed my bags and left for a 2 week road trip with my cousin to California. With only 2 hotels reserved and a flight back from Los Angeles, I would say the trip was pretty unplanned. We simply had a map, a gps, and a guide book to all of the must see places and so we made a list and were on our way. We arrived at San Francisco to bitterly cold 50 degree weather, but I simply fell in love with the city. We walked most of the time to and from Pier 39, and got to ride the super awesome cable cars. From there we drove to Yosemite National Park, and arrived to 90 degree weather. Boy was it a change. We spent a day touring the park, but even so was only a taste of all of the beauty it truly had to offer.
     We traveled along the Big Sur coast, and stopped at various cities and regions of California, including Monterey, San Simeon, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, and finally arrived in Los Angeles. We would search the internet for a hotel in our next destination and book before leaving. It certainly wasn't a relaxing trip because we were constantly thinking of places we wanted to see within a 2 week period, but in the end truly turned out to be an unbelievable trip. For me, it was one of those things where I saw in movies all the time, but didn't actually think I would one day be able to do. 
     Sometimes trips which don't have much of an itinerary are some of the ones that turn out the best. If you ever have the opportunity to go on a road trip...take the chance! It will open your world and leave you in awe of all the beautiful places and people this world has. Here are a few of the gajillion photos I took on my trip that I never got to post... enjoy, happy Saturday and Groundhog Day!! (Spring is on it's way...yayy!) =)
