On the Road: Anza Borrego

Currently listening to: 

Over the weekend, a group of friends and I went to Anza Borrego Desert State Park in San Diego County. This semi-high maintenance lady learned to rough it. I slept on the desert floor, in a tent, with no electricity. I went hiking for the first time in who knows how long. I visited an abandoned house on top of a mountain. I climbed rocks and got dirty. It was a new experience and I'm glad I did it. It definitely made me even more thankful for my comfy bed back home. It was such a beautiful trip and I enjoyed every bit of it. Big shout out to Christian for planning the extravaganza. I would definitely go back again (maybe with an air mattress next time). 

*Photos by me (with the exceptions of the one's I'm in). Other photo credit to Alyssa, Elizabeth, Rachel, and Michael.

I cannot believe that I have had this blog an entire three hundred and sixty-five days. I can't. This is probably the most committed I've been to something in my entire life (sad I know). I tend to start a bunch of projects with the intention of finishing them, but I never do. I'm quite proud of myself for keeping up with this site and for not letting it sit in cyber space for (extremely) long periods of time. Thank you to everyone who has supported this blog, read this blog, and followed this blog. You guys are wonderful. I have made some new friends and have gotten to share my old friends through this site. I'm squealing. I'm so thankful for you guys. Thank you so so much! -xoxo

Pinteresting // February

Currently listening to:

I have not been able to stop pinning these last few days. I forgot how much I love Pinterest. Well, these are some recent images I've found interesting/inspiring. I hope you've found them to be aesthetically pleasing. If you have a Pinterest, make sure you follow me!

Also, Happy Valentine's Day to all of my pretty readers! You guys are amazing and I hope you feel loved today (whether it be by a person or your morning cup of coffee). You are all lovely. PS. My blog will turn 1 on Sunday! I can't believe I've had SWCC for so long! Complete craziness? I think so. -xoxoxo
