{wanderlust // where is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been}

You guys, I stumbled on a Cup of Joe blog post titled: What’s The Most Beautiful Place You’ve Ever Seen?

I don’t want to admit how much time of my day I spent reading the comments on this post. It’s hands down one of the most dreamy threads I’ve ever been stuck on. Day dreaming. Wanderlust. All the new places I MUST go and MUST see. They way people describe these destinations is unreal.

If you have a lot of time to kill – Read it here: Comment Section

It got me thinking…..

Where is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been?

It’s a toss up. Other than Mexico, I have never left the country. Sad, right? But I have seen some places right here in the US that blew my damn mind.

{weekend notes}

monday (2)


Good Morning to you!  I hope everyone of you had a nice relaxing weekend doing something you love.  We enjoyed Big Sur, Carmel + Monterey to the fullest.  Keep reading for a picture overload and highlights to our little weekend away.

“Big Sur” is derived from the Spanish language “el sur grande.”  Meaning “the big south.” Big Sur’s Cone Peak is the highest coastal mountain in the contiguous 48 states.  That’s impressive.  I didn’t realize how spread out Big Sur is either.  Luckily I printed out some directions before we left.  When they say “off the grid” it’s no joke.  I had NO service once we headed out of Carmel.  I mean absolutely nothing.  From Bixby Bridge to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is about an hour drive.  So planning out your stops is imperative.

We hit the road early Saturday morning pumped for a road-trip just the two of us.  Here’s a few of the many highlights.

Hwy 1 has got to be one of the most gorgeous drives.  Every turnout I wanted to stop and snap another picture.  We weren’t the only ones either.  Every stop, there must have been 20 other peeps with the same idea.  I downloaded 280 pictures from this weekend – yikes.  And that doesn’t include Iphone pics.

Garrapata State Beach was our first stop.  Coastal hiking trails that lead to a two miles beach front.  The first stop is always the best, especially after a 3 hour drive.
