I love Earth Day! 


I went to California for the first time in December of 2011 and I fell head over heels in love. Honestly if the cost of living wasn’t so ridiculously expensive, I would pack up my home and move there permanently. Yes…it was that serious! At least I can enjoy all the memories I had there and visit over and over again. My hubby and I actually made this trip to Catalina Island on Earth Day 2012. We wanted to venture somewhere outdoors so that we could bask in the glory of nature and a visit to Catalina Island fit the bill. I won’t bore you with a million details. I will let the photos tell the story! Just click on a photo to start the gallery.

Isn’t Catalina Island simply gorgeous! Going through these pictures made me feel like I was in the moment all over again. I will have to find something awesome to do for Earth Day this year. I am not sure if I will be able to top this adventure though. If you are ever in beautiful California, make sure you take a day trip to Catalina Island.  I can assure you that you will be glad you did 🙂

Stay inspired

It really is not that expensive you just went to one of the most expensive places lol….It’s so worth it to live here I live in a beautiful mountain town and it’s great. I’m from the SC so I can appreciate city/mountain living:) Places like Catalina is where you go to get away for a while

    You are probably right! My hubby was living in Orange County for a while and even TJ Maxx was expensive. Maybe I need to investigate a little further. I hear the Pacific Ocean calling my name! Thanks for reading 🙂
