Final (San Diego) Friday

6/20/2014


It's weird to type that this was my final week in San Diego. In between packing, packing, and more packing (you always have more stuff than you think, right?), I squeezed in lunches and coffee dates and drinks and dinners with friends and long walks with our dog in my favorite spots and even a few hours with my toes in the sand. My husband gets back from a work trip late tonight and we're waking up early tomorrow morning to drive up to San Francisco. I'm excited and nervous and even though it's been in the works for awhile cannot believe we're really moving. Alexa will still be based in San Diego so we'll be blogging from opposite ends of the state, and getting together in two of our favorite cities as often as possible. Wish me luck with the move and let me know what you're up to this weekend in the comments, I'd love to know.


Don't forget to enter our Kohl's Instagram giveaway. It ends at midnight tonight!

10 things I do when I have a night to myself. Guilty (of 9 of them).

A big congrats to Sally from A PIECE of TOAST on her engagement!

Speaking of weddings, this is the most popular wedding date of 2014.

Do you remember the half-ponytail? It was one of my go-to looks in middle school, but apparently it's back.

Definitely bookmarking this Etsy shop roundup from Mimosa Lane

Victoria shared her favorite moments from her latest trip to Paris. Swoon.

Safest travels to you!! It was so hard for me to say goodbye to San Diego and come back to the bay. But that's the beauty of California you can get from one end to the other in an hour!

Oh wow! Moving! I hated leaving San Diego. Still sad about it in some ways, but where we landed is pretty okay. Safe travels, dear.
