San Diego...

I have been a bad blogger.. I know, but I have been running on empty since Friday, between traveling and spending the weekend with gf's, getting back into the swing of things on Monday, and running a million errands and starting the never ending pile of Christmas cards tonight, blogging has just been on the back burner. But I'm here now to share a few photos from my trip to San Diego last weekend.

I love San Diego, it holds a very special place in my heart. It's where I went to college and I could not have been luckier, what a beautiful city to call home during that time. I met some of my best friends there and the love of my life Mr. Jones there as well.

I was able to enjoy so much of this city this past weekend, first up Balboa Park!

We were lucky to wander across a Christmas Art Fair while we were there!

Beautiful gourds that had been made into ornaments.

Every color of the rainbow

I couldn't get enough of them as you can see ;)

This has to be one of the most beautiful parks I have ever seen, it's full of gardens, museums, theaters for plays and live music, a grand organ, as well as being home of the San Diego Zoo! I loved coming here when I was living in SD and lounging on the lawns or visiting the museums.

Beautiful architecture


Holiday Cheer!

We spent about an hour strolling around here and then another hour walking around the surrounding neighborhood. I took most of my weekend photos here but the weekend was full of fun activities, we visited lots of cute little vintage stores, ate amazing food at some wonderful restaurants and enjoyed a few cocktails all while laughing and catching up with these two lovelies.

Melissa, Tina and myself ;)

Yummy cocktails at the Speakeasy!

This is the second speakeasy I've been two in the last few weeks, once in LA and then again in SD. I love love love the concept, you make a reservation, so it's something to do with a small group and they specialize in custom made and inventive as well as old fashioned cocktails, they really take pride in what they do and are in NO way your typical bar...my new idea of a "grown up" night out ;)

SF girls happy to be back in San Diego!

I was terrible at taking photos but we had a blast visiting Melissa and visiting some of our old stomping grounds while also checking out some of the new shops and restaurants that have popped up since we've left. Also I must say this weekend would not have been possible had it not been for my amazing friends as they paid my ticket as an early graduation present. I love them dearly and can't wait to see Melissa up here in January!

Hope you all had a great weekend and that your work week is flying by! I know my last week of student teaching really is and it is so bittersweet! Love you all for following even when I am a lazy blogger! Promise to get back into it with another post tomorrow for WILW!

XOXO- Miss V
