the Flower Fields

If you live in the San Diego area, then you definitely know what I am talking about when I say that this year feels like a record breaking year in terms of wildflowers and greenery.  San Diego has absolutely exploded with color these past few weeks, and I am loving it! Remember all of the […]

Butterfly Jungle

Last Friday I had the oh-so-joyful experience of getting to preview the Butterfly Jungle at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.  The hubs and I had gone once before a few years back, and have always talked about wanting to go back.  I had remembered it being a magical experience, and truthfully, it was even […]

Rainy Day Fun

I can’t hardly believe that I am writing this post, but here I am.  It’s raining, and you know what, it’s been raining a lot in San Diego lately.  So much so, that I have been asked frequently, “what do you do in San Diego when it’s raining?” Well, a lot of the time my […]

Veuve Around the Clock

Last week we decided to head up to beautiful La Jolla on a very sunny day here in California to grab a drink and enjoy the views.  Now this was not just any day of the week, or any kind of drink trip.  This was pretty much a too good to be true situation.  If […]
