Sunshine in Southern California

Growing up in San Diego, I was lucky enough to have this view at my fingertips with just a twenty minute drive towards the ocean. The beaches down here are much different from San Francisco and northern California's beaches. While I can appreciate both, whenever I return to Law Street in PB, I feel nostalgic for my carefree days before entering the "real world." The endless California burritos, Acai bowls, and lackadaisical lifestyle are unbeatable down south. 

I took this photo before a morning donation-based yoga class that's held outdoors every Saturday and Sunday. I absolutely love this class! Not only is the instructor inspirational and the vinyasa challenging, but this view above is the cherry on top.

Enjoying the sunshine while hanging out with these two, we had a lovely New Year's brunch at the Sunny Spot in Venice. Bottomless bloody Mary's, plantains, and yucca fries helped cure the previous night's hangover. These ladies are too cool for school in their matching ripped black jeans and classic white Chuck Taylors. 

I found this crazy bunny mural while strolling down Abbot Kinney boulevard in Venice Beach. 

These Venice canals almost made me feel like I was back in Italy . . . although the huge houses and endless palm trees gave it away.
