Hi! It’s been a crazy April around here with winter quarter ending, spring break, and then the beginning of spring quarter. Spring quarter is my favorite quarter of the year because it means summer is near and the days are longer and brighter. I also love nothing more than warm temperatures coupled with a comfortable breeze. Don’t get me wrong – I love summer – but L.A. can sometimes be ungodly during the summer months. I have a really exciting summer ahead of me. Although I won’t be doing any big traveling this summer, I’m looking forward to immersing myself in a new job and making new friends along the way. Now, onto what’s been going on in life recently.
1. Coffee dates with my favorite guy. In my opinion, there’s nothing better than long walks around our school’s neighborhood, chatting with this guy, and an iced latte in hand. This picture was taken at one of my favorite coffee places in the L.A. area – Intellegista!
2. My best friend just finished up with school for the year and I can’t wait for her to come visit me up at school this summer! She’ll be visiting over the weekend a couple times this summer and I already see lots of brunch and shopping in our future!
3. I went home last weekend and was greeted by some really gorgeous weather. Around summertime, we also get some pretty amazing sunsets.
4. Frolicking around Santa Monica made for a blissful beginning to my weekend. Last night, a bunch of my sorority sisters and I went down to the Santa Monica Pier and had a photoshoot! It was so fun and a great bonding experience. Santa Monica at sundown is also pretty magical.
P.S. Is this not the most amazing bougainvillea you’ve ever seen?! I shot this right outside of the restaurant, Ivy At the Shore. I’m definitely adding it to my L.A. bucket list!
