a week in the life.



Some photos from my week....

I did a guest post for Naomi at Rockstar Diaries! I shared a recipe for Raspberry Ice Cream Pie (aka "pink stuff"). Check it out HERE. :)

I took a quick photo before leaving our hotel in San Diego on Wednesday morning. Loved the natural light in the room.

Oatmeal with fresh peaches (and honey & cinnamon) for breakfast...I've been missing fresh peaches like crazy, and am so happy they are back.

A self-portrait before we went here on Tuesday night.

**We are leaving on Sunday morning to fly down to Texas for a week-long family reunion! It is for my immediate family, and I come from a family of 10 so it should be a party. :) Plus, this will be the first time in a long time that I will actually get to be with my dad on Father's Day. Hooray! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. :)
