when we went down south a couple weekends ago we were in desperate need of some family time, which is often hard to find when you’re visiting relatives.
thankfully, one night we were able to get out, just the 5 of us.
we headed to the irvine spectrum, which has changed a lot since we had last been there (its a huge outdoor mall type thing – great for people watching).
the weather was incredible and we so enjoyed being together with just our little family.
we ate at a long-time favorite, wahoo’s, and were silly trying on hats and sunglasses.
loved the display in this store of the umbrellas and light bulbs!
and this flooring – aaahh! its made of recycled leather belts – brilliant!
we finished off the night with a quick teaser of anthro.
love the book spine chandelier, beautiful latte bowls (i begged for more unnecessary latte bowls), and spiraled napkin towers hanging from the ceiling.
never disappointed there.
the next morning we were up bright foggy and early and headed to our favorite breakfast joint in our old town (*tears*).
then a stroll down the pier and some hang time at the beach.
unfortunately, sean forgot his surf board – now that would bring back memories… early mornings in san clemente, watching sean surf… ah to be young again!
just past the first point was where we lived – seriously beautiful.
what more does a boy need at the beach than a rock and some seaweed?
i am so thankful for our time to catch up, slow down, and relax!
