experience: santa monica

As summer draws to a close in the next few weeks and the school bell is ringing today, I’m getting back into the swing of things after a wonderful few months of having my girls off school. The summer was busy. We didn’t experience too many lazy days and I’m not one to get excited about ‘back to school’. Truthfully I could use a few more weeks. But alas it has come to an end which means it’s time for me to hit the books (or laptop) as well.

I’ve got several posts, updates and exciting things going on so I hope you’ll visit often as I share sneak peeks, before & afters, inspirations and many more.

To get the ball rolling I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite photos from our family vacation to Santa Monica. I love California so much! What summer fun did you get up to?

A quick visit to the beach as the sun sets. Lifeguard post on Santa Monica beach.
The colourful Santa Monica Pier. Closeup of the ferris wheel on the Pier.

Beach view from the top of the ferris wheel (at dusk). Beach houses. Pacific Coast Highway A bike ride along the beach. Couldn’t resist… A visit to wine country.

A game of table tennis outside Jack Spade. One of my favourite restaurants for the decor, food and view ~ Asia de Cuba in the Mondrian Hotel Los Angeles CA.
