04: California Edition

Childhood rooms. Solo car rides. Family. Dry air. Too many smoothies. Birks everyday. Salt water. Eucalyptus. Pale skin turned pink. Learning to be independent amidst dependency. 
Beach foliage.
Mexican dress by the poolside.
 Purple Bougainvillea.
 A little SLO home.
 The fantasy land that is Santa Barbara.
Biologists friend perks.
Adobe. Jacaranda. Bougainvillea. 
Smoothie. Birks. Old flannel that was my moms. 
One must pass through the Shire... arrive in Neverland. 

Big Sur.
Hours of bliss.
Best friend concert meet ups. 
I was not cool enough to be here. And I swear I saw James Franco. 
A great place to wake up to. 
Cappuccino and a scone. 
 Beach time with my family. 
 Goodbye for now. 


Days of birth for many. Early bloomers. Weekend getaways. Becoming water sport people. 
Somehow I turned 24.
Then 4 days later this stud turned 24 as well.
We took a weekend getaway to celebrate another year of life for the both of us. 
 It was super fancy and decadent. 
Room View
 Detour hikes on the way home
In love with this man. 
This little dude turned 3!
The blossoms were not shy.
Neither were the lilacs, although I wish they would stay around longer
Our dream of being kayak owners was finally realized.  Thank you to tax returns, birthdays being close together, wedding presents, and good deals.

03 - Quick. Warm. Changed the clocks. New hiking boots. We were home almost every weekend this month.
 Warm-ish ferry ride
 24 hour layover visitor. Good friends are resuscitators. 
 "Mike, take of picture of me by this tree."
 Tax returns and dreams finally coming true!
New hiking boots
 A little city hike to break them in
 Windy discovery day
First bonfire of the year
Pike Place at Spring
Twin Falls
My love.

02 - A peculiar second month indeed. Warm, more sun than rain, more tank tops than socks. This post will mostly be about the weather.
Valentines Day Hike
The joy is for the t-shirts
Trail treats
60 degree tank top run. Getting that bootay back in shape. 
Blossoms that came 6 weeks early
 Light that lasts after 5:00
Neighborhood walks
Whidbey adventure
 A good friend visits to see what Seattle is like in the winter. But then global warming happened.
Madrona love
 Tree climbing hooligans
A ridiculous ferry ride
Just saying hi to lopez island across the way
 Daffodil Lady
Ice Cream. Always.
