insta cali

Mhmm, already ready to go back. 
I spent the last week just outside of San Diego visiting my sister Katie on a last-minute trip. It was perfectly relaxing: we spent the week eating (way too much) amazing fresh food, exploring the surrounding little towns and beaches, trying lots of new cocktails and beers, playing in the waves like we were 5 & 9 years old again,    dancing, watching the sun  set and sleeping in, walking in the morning sun for iced lattes and chocolate-filled croissants, and dreaming about what our futures will bring us. My sister worked the first two days, so I got to wander about alone, which was actually really nice--I read all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy (still reeling, let's be honest), laid on the beach, people-watched, and listened to a cute boy play music in a rooftop bar. I didn't touch a computer all week. All in all, exactly what I needed. 

A year from now, my life could go anywhere I want it to, and I'm seriously thinking I'll end up in California near my sister. This trip just served to convince me further. Time will tell! 

How was your week? catch me up! xo.

This looks like such an amazing time.
