Travel // Newport Beach & Balboa Island

Last week the mister and I headed out for a couple of days on an anniversary adventure! We decided during our first married year that instead of exchanging gifts on anniversaries, we’d take trips. So we’ve been alternating big trips and small trips each year, and because last year was our big Paris extravaganza this […]

Travel // The Getty Villa

A week or two ago, Mr. Lovely and I took a drive through the canyons and over to the Getty Villa. I’ve been to the museum a few times, but never to the villa, and it was so worth the trip! I actually was so taken with the place I forgot to ever take out […]

Beachy Bikey

The husb and I spent a couple days recently in Manhattan Beach with my sister and her family. They rented this pretty boss beach house for their family vacay and we obviously went and crashed it. One day while the kiddos were napping Mr. Lovely and I snuck out with our bikes to ride the […]

(Although we fully admit to having Starbucks breakfast sandwiches on multiple occasions.) If you’re traveling to […]

Travel Oahu // Things to Do

Travel Oahu // Planes, Hotels, and Cars

Oh man. The week after a vacation is tough, isn’t it? While we’re diligently working to get our brains out of beach mode and back into work mode, I wanted to share some more of our Hawaii trip! I always look to blogs for the ins and outs of a place when I’m traveling, so […]

Happy Friday + Pieces of Hawaii

We have one more day on Oahu and we’re gonna make the most of it! Mr. Lovely and I have been having a pretty swell time, running around the island hiking and beaching and exploring. Thought I’d share a few early snaps from our phones, while we are soaking up our remaining time here. Catch […]
