beach waves

Thursday, 5 February 2015

Despite February being LOVE month, it's also the longest, coldest, snowiest, kinda depressing, filled with cabin fever month. Every single year. And trust me, I'm not the only Debbie Downer that is thinking this, it's the center of many conversations. Almost every year around this time, we head off on a little tropical vacation, but with all the craziness of my parents house just finishing up and the 3rd pub opening, we haven't been able to sneak away just yet.  Keeping my fingers crossed it still happens. We've already discussed it and cannot wait to take Ellia along with us next year, but we don't think she is quite ready for the lengthy travel and a week away from home just yet.

So of course I am always thinking about sunny warm days and the beach. It's a daily struggle of "why the hell do I live here." The struggle is real people. I know this is probably a cliche thing to say, but I really do  know that I am meant to be in a warm climate, surrounded by palm trees and ocean. Even if it only is 3-4 months a year, aka wintertime. A girl can dream, right?

My last trip to Cali was amazing. I love spending time in my favourite place, my second home, with some really awesome people. Spending Thanksgiving with such a great group is always a highlight, I love, love the 5K Turkey Trot with the group!  And of course seeing my Instagram ladies is the best, I really adore those girls! I spent some time alone at the beach this trip which was a first, since my hotel was literally across the street from Doheny Beach.  I could probably stare at the ocean forever and never get bored. I love traveling. I love flying over different landscapes and seeing the world change, it's pretty incredible.

Just a few a bunch of my iPhone photos from Cali Thanksgiving 2014. I'll be in Jamaica for a wedding over Thanksgiving 2015 and will really miss these adventures.
