An Oceanside Christmas

My family has an odd tradition of just traveling during Christmas. With family visiting from Canada, we decided to spend it in the beautiful and sunny city of Oceanside, California.

I tried to write one post for the entire time we stayed at Oceanside, but the sunsets in this city are too pretty that it deserved its own post!

Before departing for Oceanside, we stopped by Joshua Tree National Park early in the morning. It was empty; we basically had it to ourselves.

First Stop: Palm Springs

The first part of our family trip involved going to Palm Springs! From Sunny Cycle to gourmet shakes – it was a blast!

Hello, 2018!

Wrapping up 2017 and setting my goals for 2018. I’m ready for whatever this year decides to throw my way!


I recently checked out a new sushirrito place and met up with two of my favorite bloggers in the blogosphere!

How is it December already?! Raise your hands if you felt that November only lasted for a minute *raises hands and feet* Wrapping up the month that November was plus a sneak peek into December’s festivities!

Eaton Canyon Falls

This past week, Chris and I did a new trail in the heart of Pasadena called Eaton Canyon. It’s a rather heavily populated hike that features a waterfall at the end of the trail.

Hiking to Big Horn Mine

A few days ago, Chris and I hiked up to the abandoned ruins of Big Horn Mine. The trailhead began at the Vincent Gulch Divide parking lot, off the CA-2 highway.
