WORDS OF THE DAY:
Over on Instagram, I’ve been sharing a few examples from recent projects. Here’s one to check out. Enjoy these? Leave a comment over there or here!
And outside of the booth…
Finally took a hike to Cowles Mountain in San Diego! I’ve seen it from my apartment over the last year and finally took a day off to tackle the highest point in the city!
I went the day after it rained and it was the perfect time for it. As a completely exposed hike, it can get pretty hot, but that day, it stayed cool and was even a little windy. Plus the clear skies gave amazing 360 degree to the ocean, some islands, Mexico, and several mountains inland! Great workout and reward for me and the pup Paz.
I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to and any other comments you have – leave a note below!
More ahead! Be well and keep in touch!
