a day at the market

going to the market is one of my favorite morning activities in the summer. and with summer fast approaching I decided to go and enjoy a sunny morning at the Vista Farmer’s Market. I love looking at the beautiful flowers, handmade items, and fresh fruit and veggies. with a coffee in hand, my boyfriend and I walked around admiring all the yummy things and we got some fresh blueberries and strawberries to snack on. it was such a beautiful day and I can’t wait for the relaxing and adventurous days of summer to come.

grad night

the number of blog posts I have done about Disneyland is almost embarrassing… but here is another one because why not. this time I went with my whole senior class for grad night. we piled in a school bus and drove up to the happiest place on earth. the day was super fun and the weather was almost perfect until suddenly we were waiting in line for Screamin’ when it started drizzling, then raining, then pouring hail!! yes it started hailing! luckily I got my rain poncho on just in time and my boyfriend and I ran to find dry covering but still got soaking wet. we hid in a little shop for a bit to dry off and then went back to get in line because we were able to stay in the park until 2am. we went on a ton of rides and the rain didn’t really help, but I still had a fun time and made the most of it. and I can’t believe I graduate in 2 weeks!!

copa vida

everyone has those places that bring back great memories or feelings. feelings of summer vacation, or Christmas traditions, or a specific day that had a lot of meaning. the small coffee shop Copa Vida in Carlsbad reminds me specifically of summer vacation, do-nothing days, and sunny afternoons. this coffee shop has many other locations, but this specific one is closest to my home and is found in a little tiny business area. last summer I came here so many times with family and friends and it just has that small feel and not many people know about it. with summer close approaching, I needed to go back and get my fix of coffee and that summer feel. I took my boyfriend, two sister, and cousin to go and it was such a fun time of hanging out. it makes me even more excited for this summer and all the fun things that are to come.

big bear trip

zip lining

on the first full day of my trip to big bear with jacob and his family, we went zip lining. some were 100 feet high and 800 feet long which was so crazy! we flew through the trees so fast and it was such a rush but such a fun memory.

farmer’s market

on the second day we went to the first farmer’s market of the season! the ski slopes were closed for the first week of the year and there was barely any snow left on the ground. the market was full of different kinds of vendors like fruit, veggies, kettle corn, soaps, jewelry and so much more. we go toms little sprinkle sugar cookies, walked around, and had such a fun time looking at all the goodies and taking pictures!

hiking

on the last day of the trip, we went to castle rock to make the journey up to the top to see the most gorgeous view! there was some snow on the ground as we made our way up, along with pretty streams and trees. it was about a 2 mile hike that was not too hard even for me who doesn’t get out to hike much and definitely worth it for the sights we got to see.
