california, part 1: crystal cove.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Crystal Cove State Park is one of my most favorite places and somewhere that we always try to squeeze in a trip to when we’re back in California. It’s reminiscent of family vacations and high school beach trips with my best girls, and for those reasons and more, has just always felt like home. We majorly lucked out with 80 degree weather and SUN (basically unheard of on the coast in June). We picnicked right on the beach, taught Kevin how to boogie board (sadly no photo evidence), took Kevin for his first Ruby’s Shake Shack experience, and generally got extremely sunburnt. Days like this one make me a little bummed that we live so far away from the ocean, but I’m so grateful for places like Crystal Cove where I can get my beach fix every year :)

california, pt. 1: newport beach.

newport beach is one of my very favorite places in the world. it’s the one place that i always want to go every time i come home. last thursday we took a family trip to newport, and even though it was kinda a bummer to have a cloudy beach day, the overcast-ness is pretty beautiful in its own way and hey, it was still the beach. highlights of the day included the best shrimp + scallops and salmon at the crab cooker, a sprinkles cupcake courtesy of my bff ruth, and actually getting some decent photos of us for the first time in a long time. i love you, newport.
