California Sunshine


One of the perks about living in Southern California is the beautiful beaches and weather! The other day I was able to make a trip down in San Diego for a relaxing day at the beach which was just perfect. I was able to get so much reading done so I can keep pluggin away with my book list! It's nice to have a break from the media world, and just focus on what's around you! Sometimes I get tired of keeping up my Instagram or Facebook feed, or blogging in general. I've noticed that when I don't allow myself to take a few days off from social media, blogging becomes more enjoyable and less like a chore. I never want to make my blog a chore but rather something I look forward to doing!! And beach days are perfect break getaways. 
On a different note, the other day you might have seen on my Instagram and Facebook accounts, that I had a movie day with my friends, which was so much fun! We all decided on Gone with the Wind, which ended up being a great movie! I had seen it once in 8th grade so it's been a good four years since i've watched it, and oh my gosh it's so incredible and so much better than I remember! The ending is horrible, but I love old classic movies like this one so it made up for that! This summer my goal was to get together more with my close friends, because I feel like summer flies by so fast and you never were able to do, what you originally had in mind. I can proudly say this summer that hasn't been the case for me, and I'm so thankful for that! Spending a long day with my girls, is what summer is all about!

  1. Yay, for making memories and spending the day at the beach. And amen girl, I hear ya, if I get too caught up in social media... it really can overwhelm and end up being a major kill joy. Great to know you're finding the balance!! Happiest weekend! xoxo

    PS - Love old movies!!

  2. So glad you had a great time. I recently made it to San Diego as well, and loved being able to relax for the weekend. Love the pictures as well.

  6. Oh, you look so relaxed here on the California sandy beaches. I love San Diego, and every time we go, we come home smiling. Can you believe I've never seen Gone With The Wind? I've seen bits and pieces, but never the whole show. That Lifeguard photo is wonderful, and the first one with the rocks is cool.
