In between finishing school and starting my new job I took a ten day trip to California (June 2013). My real reason for going was for Dave and Stacy's wedding (it is super awesome when friends marry each other!). I took advantage of my trip and had myself a little vacation. I totally think I deserved a little break (I had been working so hard!). Of course I planned the trip before Erik and I were dating. No worries, we talked every day!
I love both Dave and Stacy! I take A LOT of credit for them getting together. It was a great day!
You may recognize Stacy from my cruise pictures. That is how we became friends!
She was such a beautiful bride!
Weddings are soo fun! Look how much fun we are having. (totally posed)
We had a little time between the wedding and the reception so we headed over to Watts. Ya, Watts, Los Angeles! It was a little scary I won't lie. But seeing Watts Towers made it so worth it. If you are going to LA you should put this on your list. What a wacky place this is.
You know that Jennie Doezie is one of my favorite people. We spent lots of time at the beach and I loved it.
My last day there we went to Glen Ivy. It is pretty much one of my favorite places. (who doesn't love a day spa in So. Cal.?)
I drove back to Utah with Jennie. I don't love road trips .. but this one is ALWAYS fun with Jennie D.
It was a much needed break! It was a great way for me to decompress after a very stressful month! But I won't lie, I was excited to get home to see E. I totally missed him and I am pretty sure he missed me!
Two days later I started my new job. Not the summer breaks I am use to that's for sure!
