California Photo Diary

My mini-vacation to California with my family can best be described with all the Instagram images I took. (Instagram is a photo-sharing app for iPhones.) Above: playing “Where in the world is PSS?” with my Twitter followers.

Above: I tweeted the answer to the where’s PSS question with a picture.

Plane rides are so much more entertaining when you have family by your side (instead of stinky strangers).

Mulholland Drive.

Above 2 photos: My aunt’s place boast gorgeous foliage, views, and astounding bougainvilleas.

Peach tree in my aunt’s front yard. Oh how I wish I could grow things like this in Texas!

    Beautiful! Makes me miss LA so much. But I live in Texas now too. Not the same but I'm always grateful that I grew up here (in TX).

    Looks like you had a super fab little trip. I'm with you on the plant thing – every year I get inspired and plot grand ideas of peonies and hydrangea and peaches (oh my!) and then the first 100+ degree day hits…in May, and all those plans go out the window. Agave? Yeah, that will have to do.

    Seeing pics of California always makes me homesick. It is so hard not to live in a place with a beach within driving distance. Thanks for sharing.

    I love the Instagram tints! I hadn't heard of the app before and immediately installed and used it for a post! Thanks.

    Glad you were able to make it to sunny CA! This is my home and I love it so much. I see that you went to Santa Monica – one of my favorite places to be! 🙂
