Lucky Llama Coffee // Carpenteria, CA

From the beginning of our relationship, we've enjoyed long drives. There is something about the open road that sparks conversation in a super peaceful environment. Even in LA traffic. This is why we headed a few hours north even though we only had half a day for our adventure.

A Holiday Toddler Gift Guide (Prime & Under $35)

I search "________ gift guide" a gazillion times each holiday season and get so excited when I come across a beautifully put together compilation of gift ideas for the kind of people I'm shopping for. However, I do not need help when it comes to toddlers. I feel like I have that one in the bag.

Our Newlywed Road Trip Circa 2015

Back in 2015, Josh and I decided to take a road trip to the Grand Canyon over Easter break. That was the extent of our planning...we would make it to the Grand Canyon and play everything else by ear, even where we were staying. The morning of, we decided to hit Joshua Tree first. With coffee in hand, we hit the road and let a bit more of our plan form. We would hit as many national parks as possible along the way. I think it's important to note we were 4 months married and a total of 8 months together and decided to hit 4 national parks + a must-see location in a mere 5 days. Needless to say, we learned a lot about each other + our limits.

A Summer Picnic

I recently came across these photos from our church summer picnic and had to share. I had recently found out I was pregnant and definitely was feeling that first-trimester grossness. These photos are so precious though. We're laughing and smiling and sweating. I do remember it being such a fun day even though we were all melting away. It was a good oldfashioned outdoor picnic with potato sack races, tug of war, and relays. Scroll to partake in some summertime reminiscing.
