For Bryce and my anniversary this year, we took the town by storm.
Literally, there was a freak storm.
But it didn’t keep us from enjoying our weekend. We packed the car, threw on some extra layers, ran to Walmart (because neither of us owned an umbrella), and headed out to Balboa Island for a beautiful day of quirky shops and beachfront views.
Neither of us had ever been there, so my parents gave me the lowdown of where to take Bryce for dinner and ice cream and what places to see.
Of course, I brought my camera.
We started by walking the shops on the island, and I took full advantage of the break in rainfall to snap a few pictures. Overcast is the best lighting for any footage.
The crazy thing is that when I asked Bryce to pose under this archway. I stepped back to get a better shot, just in time for a tree branch, leaves and all, to come twirl-flying between us. If I hadn’t moved, my day (and my head) would’ve been shot.
This guy was an incredibly good sport all day, allowing me to snap photos and position him on wet benches. (See the video for his epic sit on the blue bench.)
I’ve been really into plants lately. (The term worship may have been used yesterday. . .)
So if anyone has a little plant baby that they don’t want or can’t keep happy, I will adopt them into my little “revival clinic” near the living room coffee table. Just saying.
How cool is this succulent fountain?
Note the debris from the storm in the background.
Super fun day.
Thank you, blog family, for being a place I can share my pictures.
For all of you shouting, “you said you brought your camera, isn’t there a vlog?”
