California Love

Boy do I LOVE California! I just got back from a mini-vacation/business trip of inspiration today after 5 days of pure fun in the sun. A couple of my really close friends live in LA & Orange County so I thought I'd spend the 4th traveling around SoCal to see them this year.

I loved staying with my friends Laura, Katie and Dave, Whitney & Chris, and Cher & Blake in their LA, Newport Beach & Corona del Mar homes. I spend my days at beaches and pools, life couldn't be better unless Brian was with me but he unfortunately had to fly home for work :(

My friends were such great hosts and we all just had such a blast!

Here are some photos from the trip :)

yes, I got to ride on an aqua beach cruiser - heaven

  2. Oh you're making me miss it. :(
    Looks like you had a great time! I dig the aqua cruiser but I still love my own pretty pink hibiscus one with my big fat basket on the front.
