Big Sur



On our trip up north we drove along the coast to see Big Sur. I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was. I mean, check out that water! God is good and he really opened my eyes to see the beauty all around me. This whole trip has really been quite the experience. Mostly, it has taught me I need to simplify things. Leaving most of our belongings in San Diego was really tough at first and I couldn’t imagine how I was going to live for three months with so little. To be honest, it still isn’t easy. But I have a new appreciation for other things now. Stepping outside and taking a walk through the city gives me so much energy. I don’t need to go shopping in order to be in a good mood, I just need to take my dog on a walk for some fresh air. Sometimes, I purposefully leave me phone, so I can just be in the moment. It is kind of sad to say that, but I am constantly on my phone checking twitter, instagram and my emails. I have to force myself to put the phone down and unplug for a bit. Are any of you guilty of being disconnected to the actual world because you are so connected online? It is a constant struggle considering it is my job. But I just need to find a healthy balance. Thank you all for stopping by and enjoy these pics!

Visiting San Luis Obispo

san luis obispo

On our way up to Seattle we had to stop in San Luis Obispo. Not only because I went to Cal Poly, but because it is such a cute town. I love all the quaint buildings and stores tucked away. If you are ever near the area you must make a pit stop to grab some food and walk through the town for a bit.

I sure love a good brick building.

Am I the only one who loves old buildings and signs?

Of course the ever famous bubblegum alley. I heard there is one here in Seattle as well, but I haven’t seen it yet. There are two ways of looking at this. 1. a really cool art piece 2. lots of germs …take your pick.

I spent way too much money in college at these cute boutiques downtown…whoops.beach

We also stopped by the San Simeon Bay to snap some pics and stretch our legs. Unfortunately it was pretty overcast, but still gorgeous!


Water makes everything so much prettier! I am loving living right next to the water now. PS. I am having a meet up in Seattle August 23rd so stay tuned for details!
