Happiest Place with my Happy People

IMG_0199IMG_0201Our friend Garrett attends the US surf open every year since it always falls on the same weekend as his birthday. Due to poor planning, Derek and I haven’t been able to join his birthday celebrations the last 5 years of our friendship with him. So, when we got invited this year, we were stoked!IMG_0293IMG_0114We went down with a group of our best friends, met up with our friend Dallin, who recently moved down there, and had one of the most unforgettable weekends together. It was filled with sunny 80 degree days, sun burnt skin and salty hair, so many laughs and inside jokes, and like always, many many dance parties.IMG_E0212IMG_0427IMG_E0406IMG_E0202We stayed in an AirBNB and out of all the places I’ve stayed away from home, this one was one of my absolute favorites. It was the perfect amount of space for 10 of us, it was decorated the same way my “dream beach house” would be, and it even had a pool to keep us all entertained! It was perfect.IMG_0422IMG_0426IMG_0425

IMG_E0424Like I’ve mentioned before, Orange county, and especially Huntington Beach is one of my all time favorite places. It’s where my family took all of our vacations growing up, it’s the first place I ever stepped foot in an ocean, and it holds a lot of my favorite memories. -Even more now.img_0414-e1534723569288.jpgIMG_0420

IMG_E0198IMG_0403IMG_0423IMG_0194Visiting my happy place with my favorite people was the best ending to this perfect summer. I love each of these people with my whole heart, all for completely different reasons, and our weekend to Huntington Beach reminded me just how lucky I am to have them. We’re like one big dysfunctional, extremely happy family, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Onto the next adventure, Wren
