This past weekend John and I drove an hour north of LA up to gorgeous Ojai for a little family getaway with my sister, Allison, and her hubby. Ojai has become one of our favorite sanctuaries outside of LA. It's so close yet it feels like we're a million miles away from Los Angeles. It's a tiny quaint town, luscious and green, and you can actually see the stars at night because the city lights aren't blocking your view! Ahhh, I had not heard crickets in over a year. It was absolute heaven. Having been so starved for nature, it felt amazing to be away from civilization for a bit. We relaxed all weekend, laid out in the sun, took turns cooking meals and played loads of board games. Good quality family time at its best! Hope you all enjoy my little photo journal below!

I had not climbed a tree since I was like... 7.
John brought me a friend while I was lying out. He named his little lizard, Fred.
I wanted to bring him home. John said, "no." Weh. The lizard then promptly leapt onto my sister's stomach making her scream! Hahaha.
