california, in 12 pictures

i left my heart somewhere on the west coast last week.
i tend to do that when i travel.

but seriously,
four solid days on huntington beach?
and newport beach and balboa island?
a girl really can't complain.

so here it is, in exactly 12 photos:

1. my first rental car. 25 never looked so good.

2. sooo...batman beach towel? yesplease.

3. yes, that would be a caramel apple gelato cone.

4. artistic wanderings in a plaid shirt, because i can.

5. the gorgeous LDS temple in newport

6. my lovely traveling companions

7. toes in the water

8. devouring my PBJ on the beach

9. "it's just that my insides, want to be on my outside."

10. warm shoulders & sunset magic.

11. mormon girl water toast

12. adventurous paddle boarding excursion in the harbor

aaaand just to make it an even baker's dozen...

13. adventures with my sister's crazy-eyed autocorrect:

What fun! I rented a car for the first time when I was 25. And although I didn't take a sweet picture like yours, I did meet Taylor Swift's dad in the rental line! Love your adventurous spirit, my dear. WE. NEED. TO. MEET. IN. REAL. LIFE. :)
