The last couple of weeks have been incredibly rainy in southern California…uncommonly rainy. Like, it’s the most rain I’ve seen in the entire time I’ve lived in this state. In fact, I read that it rained so much that San Diego County is officially no longer in a drought. Now that has all passed though and the sunshine is back! And to celebrate the return of our warm weather I decided that I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a hike in Laguna Beach. My boyfriend LOVES to hike. We don’t go hiking very often, mostly because of my great fear of rattle snakes, but since it’s not considered “rattle snake season” right now it sounded like a great idea! If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught a little bit of our hike on my “Insta-Stories” as well as the pre-hike breakfast I made us! And if you don’t follow me, maybe you should start! 🙂 Click here!
As soon as we stepped on the trail, we could tell we were in for some amazing views
We also got to see snowy mountain views!
That piece of land in the distance is Catalina Island
We were even greeted by this little guy!
Joel is quite often sneaky with his picture taking and captures me when I’m unaware
So I decided to do the same! When I saw him in this stance I had to steal a shot. He’s OBSESSED with these Cloudline hiking socks, so much so that he exclusively wears them everyday…not just while hiking.
I’m really hoping someone proposed here recently, because, well, it’s pretty adorable if they did!
When I told Joel that my idea for the day was to go hiking, he was pretty stoked. He’s not big on surprises, but I love them, so it made me feel good to be able to spring this one on him. Just a little act of affection for my guy. And a pretty sweet way to spend a beautiful Sunday morning if you ask me!
