Two weekends ago Charlie and I were in Laguna Beach for a wedding. We were lucky enough to stay in a seaside villa built in 1918. It was incredible. Tall, panned windows opened up to the rocky beach below, and at night we laid in bed listening to the waves crashing. The villa, which is a historical national landmark, sits right on the edge of a cliff and is surrounded by native succulents and sweet-smelling floral bushes. Winding stone staircases with chandeliers take you to various parts of the property. Pretty magical.
These last couple of months have been so busy. Charlie's knee-deep in grad school, and I've had my plate full writing for the Tahoe Daily Tribune and Tahoe Magazine (plus some new side projects I'm excited to announce soon!). But weekends like the one in Laguna are the perfect anecdote to busy weeks.
I think I've penned at least four blog posts since I started the blog in December 2013 where I've said, "Oh my gosh it's been so long since I've written because [insert excuse] but now I'm back!" (Peep the first blog post I ever wrote after returning from Greece - I can't believe how long it's been.) This place has always been a creative outlet for me when I haven't had a job that fulfilled me in that way. Now that I do, It's time to let this space shift and grow. I'm not quite sure what that looks like just yet, but I'll let you know how it goes.
In the meantime, I've got a fun collab with Beast + Babe coming soon!
