California Love

My husband (oooo still feels weird) and I recently made a trip out to San Diego to watch an old friend get married! While I love me some Baltimore, I love traveling and a good adventure. We decided to make a long weekend out of it. Here are some photos from our trip.

Mimosa sampler at Zanzibar in the Gaslamp Quarter, twist my arm. Peach, raspberry, guava, passion fruit and more!Image

And then this drives by?? Life is complete.

We were able to wander Balboa park between the ceremony and reception. Image

Lily pads!

More turtles! Not quite as large.

The cocktail hour was held under this beautiful pergola in the garden, complete with koi fish!Image

Perfect flowers at the wedding. Image

Congrats to Thad & Laura! Here is their first dance.Image

Once we arrived in Mission Bay, we took the rental bikes and headed to Pacific BeachImage

From there we biked to Mission Beach, stopping at the Mission for breakfast. Here is everything I would ever want in a meal. Heaven. Image

After Breakfast, there was a much needed walk on the boardwalk.Image

Love me a good succulent. 

So many awesome piers in San Diego.Image

We also took a little trip north to The Stone Brewery in Escondido. I wish I had some pictures to share but I was so in awe with how gorgeous it was that I was fully enjoying it (and all the delicious brews!). A must visit if you are visiting and have access to a car!

Next up on the travel list: Italy!
