Birthday Trip to California

Sara Michelle B.Comment

On May 4th I turned 35!!! My sister recently moved to southern California, so we decided the perfect way to celebrate my birthday would be to fly out there with the boys and spend a week in the surf, sand, and sun! (And do some shopping, of course!) It was WONDERFUL! The trip exceeded my expectations in every single way. We had amazing weather, the boys were great, the beaches were beautiful, we got in some awesome family time, Disney was a blast, and it was just all round the best trip ever. I didn't want it to end! In fact I find myself questioning why I live in Ohio and not California ;) 

I'll post more pictures of my favorite shops throughout the week, but here are some of my favorite pictures from the week!

I'm already dreaming of my next trip back, as well as how I can incorporate more California style into my midwest home!
