Ice cream and friends!

Over this past weekend my friends Sophia, Jordan, and Chloe all decided to hang out! We started our day at Chloe’s house and then decided to go to Tinkers which is my favorite burger joint in Santa Barbara. I got fries and a shake and my friends got chicken nuggets. The fries there are literally the best fries I’ve ever had in my life not to mention they’re curly. We ate out food and decided to get some ice cream to finish off our meal.

We headed to a local ice cream shop and everyone got ice cream besides Jordan and I since we shared my shake. We decided to go to the rose garden to eat it and hang out. I’ve said this before but the rose garden is one of my favorite places in Santa Barbara! I love it because there is so much space to run around and have picnics while also getting the prettiest views of the roses, mountains, and the mission itself! Whenever I’m feeling down I also go to the rose garden to get some time alone and just enjoy the amazing view.

We ate our ice cream and hang out for about an hour before heading back Chloe’s house before calling it a day.

This little fun adventure filled with so much food was so much fun and it was a ton of fun hanging out with friends that I have not in such a long time! Maybe next weekend you should hang out with some friends that you haven’t hung out with in a while, trust me its so much fun catching up and telling old stories!

Skiing in France!

Last week I talked about my trip to Paris, this week I’ll be talking about my second half of my trip in France where we drove twelve hours to courchevel! Courchevel is a small mountain town in the french apls. The ski resort is huge and could take an entire day to go from one side to the other. I love every run there, each one being so pretty with great snow! Our house is right off the first run so we can literally ski to the mountain and be right at the lifts at the end of the hill.

Courchevel is by far my favorite mountain view out of anywhere I’ve ever been, not to mention everywhere has panoramic views reaching all the way to Sweden!

Skiing is one of my all time favorite activities so when I get to do it for eight entire days, I was living the dream. Since it was just the beginning of the season there was little snow at the bottom of the slopes but everywhere else was so pretty and filled with snow. Since we were there for so long we got to spend some parts of the day off of the slopes just adventuring to new places in the town one of them being a local hike that was so pretty and filled with rocks on the hill sides, it was so freaking pretty and breath talking.

Overall this trip was so much fun filled with such beautiful memories and moments and I hope to go back sometime with some friends and get to explore all parts of France! I recommend Paris and the French alps to anyone who is looking for a fun trip, especially if you are looking for trip full of new culture and places!

When was the last time you took a family vacation or went on a trip? Do you know of any must go places for me to travel next? Let me know down below!

The flowers I’ve seen this week!

Hey guys! This week I decided that I was gonna change things up and write about not only the many adventures I did this week, but the flowers I saw while I was on them, or even when I was just walking around!

The first mini adventure I went on was going to the rose garden at sunset while eating some ice-cream! We decided to go in the spur of the moment since when we passed the mission and saw that the rose garden was filled with beautiful roses! My favorite rose is down below, and this picture doesn’t even give it justice! The flowers glowed with color and seeing them made my day!

The next adventure I went on was to a local park that was filled with wild flowers. The yellow flowers brightened my day. The entire park was filled with colorful flowers, it was absolutely insane. We had to truck through bushes throughout the entire park. Every flower was unique and so vibrant!

On our way home we stopped by a house that had so many pretty flowers all over the front yard. We decided to stop by and check them out, they were all so pretty and elegant.

The last flowers I saw this week was when I was just walking around school to my next class. It was so crazy to me that I had never noticed these amazing flowers until this week, I pass them at least four times a day and had never even noticed them. Now when I pass them it bring me joy!

Seeing all these different and colorful flowers brought me joy and helped me throughout this tough week. Seeing all these flowers made me realize how beautiful the world can be.

Hope you guys enjoyed this weeks blog!

Did you do anything fun this week? Did you see anything that brought you joy? If you know of any other things I could do for next weeks or some fun adventure make sure to let me know down below!

At the top of the hills!

Over this past weekend  my family and I decided to go up to San Ynez mountains in hopes of seeing miles of wild flowers since its the season. We decided to go up to Figueroa Mountain, which is about a forty five minute drive from Santa Barbara. The entire drive up was filled with views of rolling hills and mountains, it was insanely pretty. We got up to the mountain at around one o’clock. The way up the mountain was filled with whindy roads and green fields. When we got to the top of the mountain we settled down and had a little picnic where we all got to catch up and talk about everything new going on in everyone’s lives and trips everyone was going on.

We adventured around looking for wild flowers but we had no luck, all we could find were purple flowers and tiny bushes of poppies. After about two hours of being up on the mountain we decided to go even higher to see if we could find more wild flowers, but sadly it was a dead end so we finally gave up. We headed back down the mountain listening to some classic old tunes as we drove pass all the beautiful meadows.

On our way back down the mountain we passes dozens of cows and horses and decided to stop and pet some, they looked so happy being out in nature and living a natural free life.

Overall this day was super fun and it was super nice to get to catch up with all my family and see whats going on in their lives. The day was filled with such amazing views and memories, I can’t wait to go up to Figueroa Mountain again sometime soon, hopefully there will actually be some wild flowers!
