Daily Inspirations and Adventures

California – January 2012

with one comment

Warm weather . . . friendly people who are constantly outside doing some sort of activity . . . enjoying every single moment of sunshine the day has to offer . . . yummy food . . . beautiful beaches . . . my best friend . . . Encinitas is all that and more and I could not have had a better time this past weekend.  I miss Kim (and wearing flip-flops) dearly . . . but the good news is that it looks like I’ll be going back to LA for work in April, which means I have another weekend in paradise to look forward to.  🙂

First off, Kim and Matt’s AAAAdorable new house.  It’s in a little gated community not far from the beach (and the highway, which is important for Kim’s commute to work).  Their good friends live DIRECTLY across the street (and they happen to be expecting too which is great).


LOVE the color of their front door.

They have two adorable kitties . . . Loki

and Jackson.

This is the main street of Encinitas . . .

Birds of Paradise grows like weeds here.  So awesome.

The town beach.

Look at this cactus garden!  It took over this person’s entire front yard (which happened to be RIGHT at the entrance to the town beach (above)).  Amazing. Can you grow those fun goose neck plants in your cactus garden?

Here are more pictures from our long walk on the beach.

Only in California . . .

I’m so very lucky to have the opportunity to see Kim and Matt (and soon, their little one) on a pretty regular basis . . . I will never take a second with them (or the sunshine) for granted.

For two girls growing up amongst cow farms in Barto, PA, we’ve done pretty good for ourselves.  🙂
