Reflections

Hi everyone!!   Home from vacation at last, but now comes the annoying aftermath of dirty laundry, housekeeping and grocery runs.

Glasses and shoes in hand..it was a long hike to the sunset!


Since my new best friend Beverly from Beverly Like Hills has linked to my site after we met, I have had more page views than in the entirety of my blog's short and illustrious (NOT) history.  As a result I felt I needed to put something new up ASAP!

This picture my friends, was taken where she lives.  Well, its a few miles up the road from where she lives, but still.  It is no wonder that upon embarking upon summer vacation she thought of the beach.  I don't want to regale you with how amazing she is in real life, it really was a date with a rock star for me.  She laughed at that, but for me it is the truth.  You will all have to plan your own trips to Newport and find out for yourselves.

My family had an AMAZING trip and enjoyed our time in California immensely.  I'm looking for property right now and DH is looking into jobs at UC Irvine.  Kidding!  But seriously, it was great.  Just the right balance of relaxation and activity.  I hope you are all doing well and I promise that I will get back to outfit posting soon. 

XO,
Alyssa

    1. Thanks Annette. Not sure I have too many to post, it was mostly family shots. I didn't even have Mike take a picture of my "meeting Beverly" outfit! LOL

    1. Alice...are you out there too? Did I know that?! You can bet I will be going back there, I fell in LOVE with that section of the coast. I don't know that I would ever be able to work though, distracted by the ocean as I am. When I do, I'll give you a shout. Perhaps we can organize a west coast blogger meet up?!

    1. LOL Monica...I dont remember the La Jolla coast as it has been years since I was there. I can tell you that from the beach level, its very different from the east coast where I normally hit the beach! We don't have those amazing cliffs that make it such a remote-feeling place. I loved it.

  7. Fun that you met up with Beverly! You are looking glamorous standing in your b/w by the coastline. Plus your hair looks really great.
