Southern California + Highlights

filed under:

It’s been such a busy week and it’s about to be another busy weekend of driving all around Southern California! You may remember that last weekend I was in Newport for my boyfriend’s documentary premiere at the Newport Film Festival and then I was in Ojai for a wedding and then I was in Los Angeles (yes, it’s home but still) for a graduation celebration. Well, this weekend is even crazier! I’m driving to Palm Springs today for day one of Stagecoach (Stagecoach last year). Then, tomorrow, I drive to La Jolla for a wedding (it’s at La Valencia!). On Sunday, I drive back to Palm Springs for day 3 of Stagecoach. Finally, on Monday I drive back to LA for real life. Thank goodness I have my mom with me at stagecoach and the wedding to enjoy the driving with! Last weekend’s wedding was such a blast and I’m so excited for this weekend’s nuptials. I LOVE weddings! I also have to exclaim how excited I am for my boyfriend, Edwin, because his documentary premiere was a huge success!! Today, I’m grateful for all the fun of family and friends and for all that life has to offer! Have a wonderful weekend loves.
