california januaries.


 
 

January is by far my favorite time of the year here in California. Every January the orange tree behind our apartment bears its beautiful fruit, and the weather is just so. darn. perfect! I'm a northeast Ohio girl, so I think it's safe to say the novelty of these California Januaries won't be wearing off any time soon.

This past weekend was full of things like going to the same Mexican restaurant for the 10th time in a row, trimming our bangs (me) and beards (Aaron), french toast for Sunday morning breakfast, playing card games, and 9pm bedtimes. Us married folks are a real riot! We've actually had a lot going on, with Aaron traveling like a mad man for work and "real life" happening of course, but our simple weekends are my favorite.

Happy Monday! ♥

  5. Man, I've got to start living in Cali or something because I HATE January--it's rarely gotten above 0 degrees here in Logan, Utah.

    Enjoy it for the both of us!

  13. lady, these beautiful bang photos of you are not helping my itch to want to snip at mine one bit! neither are the oranges...because truth be told as much as i love ohio winters i would much rather be standing next to an orange tree. haha.

    how about i send you some snow and dry skin if you send me cute bangs and some oranges?

  19. Ah, I can't get over how incredibly simple yet beautiful your blog is. It's such a treat when you have a new post. And I have to agree as a born and bred Illinoisan, I am loving these LA winters as well.

  23. I've always loved Januaries - it feels like a fresh start. Also, the weather is so much nice than in other parts of the country!

  24. LOVE the oranges. California is the polar opposite of Newfoundland, Canada right now - as I type, snow is coming down in hoards outside of my window.
