I’m back from the Caribbean, and I’m missing it already! After spending a week on a catamaran in the sunshine looking out over the clearest water I’ve ever seen, San Diego’s cloudy day seems a little lackluster.

Let’s be honest though: just about any place seems lackluster in comparison to the British Virgin Islands. It’s truly a piece of paradise. It was a long week packed with activity, but it also flew by in a flash. [Read more…]

You’d think I lived with a big group of citrus loving people…but it’s all for me. 😍 [Read more…]
