Weekend trip to California...

While we still have our companion pass, we decided to take a quick trip to LA over the weekend! It was great to escape the snow for t-shirt weather, and we had a lot of fun around the city.

Day 1 we hit up Knott's Berry Farm! It was actually a really fun little theme park, and the lines were so so short, making it a great day :)

Day 2 we crammed in a lot of fun - we started with the Grammy Museum downtown, then we headed out to the old (abandoned) LA Zoo. After, we saw Moana (loved), swooned over a cupcake ATM, then headed up to the Griffith Observatory so Kip could geek out about space :)

Not pictured - the amazing Indian food, pizza, and tacos that we stuffed our faces with. Let's be honest - food is the main reason I travel :)

Life lately....

Things have certainly been busy since we got home from Europe! Between getting promoted at work, picking up a few more yoga classes, and gearing up for the holidays, things have been crazy and beautiful!

I graduated from Yoga Teacher Training - Level 2! What an amazing experience with such wonderful people.

We got to keep my little bro with us for Thanksgiving! :)

And now we're gearing up for Christmas - Kip couldn't be any more excited for this one :) :)

I'm feeling incredibly blessed and full - how beautiful life is! :)

Italy & Greece.... Best trip ever!

If you ever want to take the vacation of a lifetime, I highly recommend Italy and Greece. The food, the sights, the history, the culture, the adventures, the beauty.... there are not words to describe how truly magical this trip was!

After a long trek to Europe, we got to hike through Cinque Terre, the cutest series of costal fishing villages you'll ever see!!

We briefly stopped in Pisa...

and then headed to Florence! We did a spectacular bike tour of lovely Tuscany! (PS it's as beautiful as you'd imagine).

Our next stop was Rome. Ah, Roma. What an amazing city. The history, the nightlife, the beautiful streets that you can wander through for hours... this was one of my favorite places.

Our last Italian city was Venice. Just..... wow. The waterways, the gelato, the narrow streets.... I loved exploring this place!

We then hopped on a cruise ship to take us to Greece! Our first stop was actually Kotor, Montenegro.

Then, we got to scuba dive on the lovely, green Corfu! We did an awesome cavern dive, and even saw an octopus!

Then.... ATHENS!!!! FREAKING ATHENS!!! I was so excited about this place, and it didn't disappoint. The acropolis, the temples, the food... seriously the best.

Next up, Mykonos! We rented a buggy and drove from beach to beach, taking in the amazingly blue water and white buildings!

Our last stop was on Kefalonia, where we did a kayaking tour of the coast. I've never seen water like that, and I've been to quite a few oceans! We saw some awesome caves and squooze (that's the technical term, I think) through some really tight tunnels! What a gorgeous way to end our perfect trip.

Truly, this trip could not have been any more fun, and I'm so blessed to have had this adventure with my favorite person ever!!!
