All Over the Place

Mondays are always hard. They're made harder when we have photos to remind us of the good times of not too long ago and of the seeming eternity of five work days that we need to endure til the next adventure. Last Friday, we were both feeling low in spirits with a "work sucks and then you die" mindset, and so this weekend relaxation was just what the doctor ordered after a long, sucky work week. The remedy: A picnic a la Trader Joes in a park shaded by quintessential California palm trees and bougainvillea flowers. An uneventful attempt to vintage shop for halloween costumes that turned into a discovery of cool new stores with labels we love. Finding Toms for $30 at Costco of all places to add to our ever growing list of his and her things. A cliche date of a dinner and a movie with Gone Girl and chicken run burgers at Native Foods. And lastly, a spontaneous, late night visit to the beach complete with star gazing and hand holding. With no real plan, we were kind of all over the place, but in the end, it all worked out just the same. Sometimes the best things in life are unplanned.

  5. I feel your pain re: workday blues, and find the best solution is exactly what you did -- a relaxoweekend full of the random little things you love. For me, going into the weekend without a "concrete plan" is the best feeling in the world, no stress, just the opportunity for fun (and/or napping).

    Also, the matching shoes <3

  6. What you guys described is amazing! Life is all about spontaneously enjoying it and finding your own way to escape the mundane. I also love the Purity Ring t-shirt and the matching Toms. Looking forward to more of your content!
