Hello from one of my favorite places, Del Mar! Edwin and I snuck down here for the weekend to get out of Los Angeles and to enjoy some quality time on the beach. On Friday night, my brother popped in due to his spring break plane being rerouted so we made margaritas and fish tacos while playing lots of gin rummy. On Saturday morning, my brother headed out and Edwin and I got smoothies then hiked Torrey Pines. By the time we got back to the house, the sun had come out and it was the perfect temperature for sunbathing and beach walking with my girlfriend who lives in San Diego and came over. We made salmon and tuna poke bowls for dinner and enjoyed the most beautiful sunset! Today our plan is pretty much the same… make yummy meals at home and soak up as much beach time as we can before heading back up to Los Angeles. Keep reading my weekend reads for some fun recipes, travel guides, and some great sales! xx
