Spring Break in La Jolla

AKA: A Jolly Gorge-Fest

But first: I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted on The Real Life! I love my job, but work demands a lot of my energy. Blogging is a little too similar to my job sometimes, and as my goals and responsibilities grow at work I’ve felt like the last thing I want to do is more posting. Sorry, guys! I’ve also been prioritizing my mental health and listening to my inner guidance system. When blogging stopped being fun and turned into an obligation (and a way for me to impose perfectionism onto myself) I knew I needed to take a break.

Speaking of breaks… I’m so excited to share a recap of our lovely Spring Break vacation to La Jolla! The Man booked this trip for my 31st birthday, and it was worth the wait.

We also tried to get Harper in the Christmas spirit. Cute photos ahead!

Denver Flea is “a contemporary marketplace showcasing makers and retailers who cultivate the Colorado lifestyle,” and it is legit awesome. I managed to take a handful of photos amidst the crowd. Check them out!

Hi, friends! It’s been a while. Whoops! For the past month or so, I’ve been working on another exciting Web project and thus, The Real Life has taken the back seat recently.

But I’m hoping to keep updating you all (hi, Mom!) on the fun little goings-on in our life, especially when it comes to Harper-pupdates, who is by far the most fun thing to see on this blog. 😉 Am I right?

This was such a great weekend! We had an epic Halloween-themed date night, hung out with all the people, and hit the trails not once but twice! We also managed to do some cleaning, talk finances, and meal prep for the week. Best team ever.
