Weekender: California Dreaming

It’s hard to believe how quickly time flies. I know, I know – how cliche. But I’m serious. Post-grad life is flying. Almost literally, too. I’ve been on more flights than I can count – to NYC and back again, California, Texas, Florida…the list goes on. I’ve started my first full time job (nearing my official one-year anniversary!), and work alongside some amazing people who I’m lucky enough to call my friends. Of course there are things I miss about college, but I’m overwhelmed by a sense of gratitude, hope and excitement.

If there’s anything I’m dreaming of this lazy Saturday afternoon, it’s my post-grad vacation to California with my mom. The trip was perfect – a celebration not just of my graduation from Notre Dame, but of a lifetime of support from my family, a history of special times in SoCal with my best friend (think Rory & Lorelei) and of course, a toast to all that’s to come.

Here are just a few snapshots from my trip, taken exactly one year ago. Time flies, yes, but thank goodness for our memories. 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sunday Musings

There’s something about autumn I just can’t resist. The crisp air, breathtaking colors, fall fashions, flavors, and football – you name it – I love it all. Here are just a few images that capture my journey across the bridge that links summer fun to winter white. Rest assured there will be more to come.
Enjoy what’s left of your weekend!
