This week I turned 24! Over the weekend my parents came into town, as did eleven other extended family members, and we had the wonderful opportunity to go boating! On Saturday my wonderful parents rented a chartered boat, and we road it from Marina Del Rey up to Santa Monica and back, which was SO FUN and for which I am so grateful.
I've been reading Mary Oliver all day and I got reminded of the awesome time Ben and I had at Cape Kiwanda. All I want to do right now is explore a new coast or forrest, but having class in an hour, I will have to reminisce. This was such an awesome experience and it really makes me miss Oregon.

Here is the second round of photos from our recent trip to Joshua Tree! These were my favorite cacti too see, but unfortunately some thirsty bees were swarming the area and we had to make a quick getaway. Still, it was my favorite trip ever.
Of the many many photos from our trip to Joshua Tree, these are the ones that make me happiest. The photos capture Ben and me exploring in our own ways- him leaping up the boulders to terrifying heights, and me staying low, watching the plants and bugs.
On my 23rd birthday my boyfriend and I drove up to Malibu to explore a new area, and ended up hiking for a few hours at Point Dume State Beach and Preserve. There's nothing better than being outside for a few hours, and the birds-eye view of so many people, sea gulls, and seals made it perfect. It was by far my favorite birthday so far.
