I spent nearly three awesome weeks in my home state of California back in May. I had the opportunity to see friends, family and do so many awesome things such as go to the beach, have wonderful meals, visit the local farmers market, get my nails done with some funky 80′s style, hike in the mountains, and I even had the opportunity to visit a big cat sanctuary.
I couldn’t help but do yet another photo recap post. I know, it’s a lot of photos. But everything was worth capturing on film. Promise, last one for a while!
