Austin, Texas

TEXAS! This was both Nate and I’s first time visiting the lone star state. We’ve heard (like every other 20 something year old) Austin was a cool city to explore so we planned a trip there with our good friends, Nikki and David! : )…

San Franciscooooo!

Hey blog world! Life has been full lately but we’re finally back in Orange County for at least another month and soaking up this summer weather (no more June gloom, yeeeeeeaah!) So here’s short photo blog on our weekend up north! Last month Nate and…

Malibu Camping

So…I’ve never been camping before. Not, really. You know…pitching a tent, fireside cooking, being in the middle of no where. I’ve wanted to try it out since we got married, knowing that Nate loves it so much. So, camping in Malibu seemed ideal, being that…
