Oh hey there! Yes I am still here, alive and well. I’ve been on the road friends, and today I am here to report to you all the happenings that took place. Things are starting to settle down a bit so I can finally give you all an update. Hip Hip Hooray! I am aware all my cool points went out the window with that phrase.
Two weeks ago a whirlwind of events took place. In one week I moved out of my apartment in Monterey, California, left my precious job, and traveled across the world with my family. We traveled across the earth in a Mustang with four adults and a dog. Yes, a dog! How we all fit in that car is still a miracle.
Oh and did I mention our tire blew out on the highway, and we were stuck until the tow trunk arrived? What’s a road trip without a flat right?!
Despite all the chaos we had an amazing time traveling the world. We visited Hoover Dam, The Grand Canyon, and Groom, Texas. I feel incredibly blessed that I was able to travel with my family and create wonderful memories.
I’m exhausted but it was all worth it. Check out some photos I snapped along the way.
Saying Goodbye to Monterey
This was incredibly hard for me because I truly loved living in Monterey. I believe Monterey was made just for me. If you haven’t seen my Happy One Anniversary Monterey post go check it out. In that post you’ll see how beautiful the city is, plus a lot of my videos and outfit posts feature gorgeous views of Monterey.
During our last week in Monterey Erik surprised me on our date night and brought me to Message Mountain. It’s a huge sand dune in Sand City where people write messages using ice plant. You climb to the top and write your message for people to see as they travel along that road.
I always read the messages during trips and thought it’d be so cool to do. So I climbed up there and wrote my message for the world to see. I simply said “Bye Cali”. I left my mark on “The Big Dune” for all to see. Until next time Monterey…
The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon was freaking AMAZING! Amazing isn’t even the right word. I have no words to describe it. If you ever have the opportunity to go to the Grand Canyon drop everything and just go. I have pictures, but they don’t even show half of its glory. Breathtaking!
Interstate 40 at Groom, Texas
This stop in Carson County, Texas was unplanned. We were coasting along the road, and saw this humungous cross. I shouted, “Woah! What is that giant cross?” The cross can be seen from 20 miles away. We pulled over and discovered the life-size version of the Stations of the Cross. It was beautiful! Thank you to the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ Ministries for displaying such beautiful art.
Thanks for stopping by, check out my last road trip to Yosemite National Park here.
