3/11 Earthquake & Tsunami in Japan

Image via

I can't even begin to formulate my thoughts about this horrific tragedy. Luckily all of my family in the Tokyo area is alright. But, my heart and prayers go out to all the others affected by the earthquake and tsunami. This series of events has deeply sadden my soul and has put many things in perspective. I greatly admire and respect all of the quick responses and aid in the relief effort from all across the globe. May all those affected find the strength to overcome such dire circumstances & let us not take for granted the simple gifts we are given daily.

Here are some ways to help:
- NPR's list
- Save the Children
- Red Cross
- The New York Times

Bless you. ♥

24 hours in San Diego.

Aubrey and I decide to take a little trip down to San Diego during the President's day weekend. We stayed downtown at the beautiful boutique Hotel Solamar on Sunday night. On our way down we stopped by and filled our belly's with some good ol' brew & bbq at the famous Phil's BBQ. We wondered around the gaslamp district and danced our feet off that evening . The next day, I wanted to explore SouthPark, a quaint area in San Diego with a homemade ice cream shop and other small boutiques. Silly me, didn't take into account the holiday and we arrived to a quiet & empty SouthPark. Most of the shops and restaurants were closed due to the holiday but luckily The Daily Scoop was awaiting our arrival with open doors. They are an all natural ice cream shop, so I happily enjoyed the Pistachio (without the yucky artificial green color) which pleasantly had pieces of pineapple. Because the restaurant we wanted to eat at was closed we relied on trusty yelp to guide us to a delicious lunch. We discovered El Salvadoreno Restaurant not too far from SouthPark and devoured pupusas, tamales, plantains and washed it down with pineapple juice mixed with fresh fruit.

The drive was gorgeous. So fresh after a nights rain.

Viewpoint {There were tons of seagulls and Aubrey got pooped on}

Playing in the flowers.

This required a nap afterwards.

Closed. :(

The best part!

@ The Daily Scoop

Fresh fruit in every slurp.

We shared the combo platter so we could try a little bit of everything.
