Week eleven was too good to me.
I had a some real struggles at work…but I can’t get too bent out of shape about it when I remember I had fresh baked macarons on two separate occasions. But seriously, this week was filled with joyful time spent with good friends and my (too good to me) husband. Lavender Tea Lounge with two beach babes.
My beautiful friend Luanna enjoying the view from Ellie’s in San Clemente. God is so good in bringing this awesome woman into my life.
Four macarons gone in less than four minutes.
Palms, sun, and the ocean brings much joy to my soul.
Sparkles, freckles, & iced coffee.
LA Farmers Market tradition.
Bret and I went to LA for an overnighter to celebrate our 3-year Wedding Anniversary. Bouchon Bakery for macarons and iced tea had to happen.
Our hotel was super fun and modern. I really liked these white deer.
The Sportsmen Lodge is known for being the “Old Hollywood” spot back in the day. And we, no joke, ran into Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) in the elevator! Creepy.
Fonuts. All baked or steamed. All delicious.
What a cutie! Eating a strawberry buttermilk fonut.
We visited Olvera Street and picked up a leather Mexican purse.
I forgot my make-up bag at home during our get-away…but it humbled me and directed my thoughts toward Christ. It was really good.
I like his legs. Like, alot.
Abbot Kinney Blvd.
I have to recreate this at home: Blueberry Mint Lemonade.
Amazing cactus wall.
More cactus walls next to white wash.
Abbot’s Alleyways. Ferris Wheels make me so happy. A great way to end our great get-away. I am more in love with Bret today than I could have ever imagined.
What are your favorite spots in Los Angeles?
Blessings in the week to come, friends!
