This past Sunday I woke up at 7AM (I don't think I've slept in for the past several months) and took a more or less planned trip, an hour and a half down the Pacific Coast Highway with my friend Carmen. After spending a couple of hours at a meeting in Dana Point, we decided to just spend the rest of the afternoon driving around Orange County. We indulged in some amazing fish tacos and cocktails at Bear Flag, soaked up the sun at Newport Pier, and took a drive to snack at my favorite mochi ice cream spot, Mochilato.
Vitamin D is real. Being both transplants from New York City, we came to a realization yesterday that this was probably the most time we've both ever stayed outside in general. Aside from being in the office half the time, a lot of my extra time is literally spent outside. Whether it's running, hiking, or just hanging out - the winter and the weather in California is way too contagious to not enjoy or appreciate. Needless to say that I'm so over the cold, snowy winters of the east coast.
