My last day in LA was glorious! The colors and textures of the ocean and clouds were incredible and I couldn't stop taking photos. Thanks to my dear friend Katie for knowing how much I needed the ocean and taking me to the water :). I think the above picture of her is one of my favorites from the whole trip.

Just as I'm finishing up posting these photos, I'm about to leave again on another little trip. I'll be in New York for about a week and can't wait to catch up with friends and visit another place that feels like a second home.  Hopefully it won't take me quite so long to post all the photos this time :). Hope you guys are having a nice monday! It finally feels like Spring outside, and for that I am grateful!

Here are more long overdue pictures from California. During my trip, I got to spend almost a whole day in beautiful Santa Monica with dear friends from college, Lauren and Katie. We had lunch at Urth Caffe, spent time strolling on Main Street checking out tiny boutiques and craft shops and smelling the ocean breeze, and passed the rest of the windy afternoon at the beach. I went to college right down the coast from Santa Monica, and spent many an afternoon on the Santa Monica pier or at Third Street Promenade. It was a wonderful day and made me feel very nostalgic :). 

Life is busy right now...so it's good for me to look at these pictures from a few weeks ago. Also, winter has returned to Colorado this week and we're expecting tons of snow. Take me back to the California sun please!! :)
