Two weeks ago, O and I snuck away for a week split between Malibu and Los Angeles. I still can’t believe we pulled it off. I was actually back in L.A. this weekend for a girls trip to Beverly Hills but more on that later. For now, here is everything we wore, ate and loved on our trip and a breakdown of the two hotels we called home for a week.
I can’t wait to share more about why we were in L.A. in the coming months but it was such a treat to take the kids to L.A. twice in the past year (you can see our trip this past summer right here.) Stepping out of the airport to see that periwinkle blue sky and dry heat on your skin is pure gold. This was a bit of a work trip but we always manage to sneak in trips to our favorite spots.
We took quite an impromptu trip to Los Angeles mid July and it was everything our family needed and didn’t know it. We enjoyed a little bit of sun, a whole lot of sand, some time with friends who planted a church there and had the sweetest time as just us four. O and I had just been to L.A in May so we wanted to make this trip really centered around fun activities and exploring for the kids. Turns out, they love what we love. Who knew?
Hi, friends! What a wonderful summer it’s been thus far! As much as I enjoyed every minute of the blog break, I must say it truly solidified just how much I enjoy creating content. Sharing through words, mood boards and photos is a passion gifted to me and I’m grateful for this community and the ability to do what I love. Hopefully you were able to keep up over on social media but if not, don’t worry. Grab whatever sounds most delicious right now (lemonade? iced coffee? a stack of pancakes?) and settle in for a nice long update on what I ate, wore, read, listened to and watched in July.
We had the best time in California last month! I say last month when we actually haven’t even been home for a full week yet but it always feels like a lifetime ago once I’ve settled back into real life. While O lived in California for 5 years of college and I lived there for three years of high school and through college as well, we always say one thing we regret about our time there is missing out on all that was right at our fingertips. When you live in northern California like we did, you’re within 3 hours of many places people travel from all across the world to visit! Marin was one of those places we never crossed the Golden Gate Bridge to see and I was thrilled a dear friend’s wedding gave us a reason to go. As usual, this post is far too long with way too many pictures but if that’s your thing- lets do this!
