This past weekend I went camping with my twin, brother-in-law + our dogs. We drove to Sequoia National Park & spent a relaxing weekend there, hanging out. It was perfect summer weather. Since I’m starting fall semester again Aug. 24th, this was my last summer trip! I can’t believe summer is basically coming to an end, and Autumn is creeping around the corner. I’m ready for Fall though, it’s my favorite season.

Here are a few pictures from our time in Sequoia National Park & Hume Lake:


We got to see the biggest tree on earth: General Sherman. It was amazing!



I had a really nice time, without cell reception. Sometimes you need to disconnect from everything and relax. I hope to go camping again soon- I want to explore more places I’ve never been to. Lola was a little bit of a handful, but then again she isn’t used to being outdoors in the woods. haha! I think she’d do fine in a cabin though. I’ll have to remember that for next time.

I hope you all have a lovely  day.



summer break reading list.

Hey everyone!

As I’ve said in a previous post, I’m not taking any summer classes… which is so exciting! That means I get to do whatever I want until I start school in August. I have a whole list of books I want to read. I’ve been collecting these books over the last couple months, but wasn’t able to read any during Spring semester because I was too busy. So NOW is the time to jump right in and spend my days reading.

  1. The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating by Carole Radziwill


I’m a HUGE fan of Carole’s work, I actually started reading this a few weeks ago. This will be the first one I want to finish.

2. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple


3. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes


Sooo excited for this one. Haven’t seen the movie YET, but I will soon! I don’t mind watching the movie first before reading the book.

4. First Comes Love by Emily Giffin


SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK! Emily Giffin is one of my favorite authors, and I have read all her other books. I pre-ordered this book, as it comes out later this June! Can’t wait to get it in the mail!

5. Paris in Love by Eloisa James



6. Threats by Amelia Gray


7. Wild by Cheryl Strayed


I’ve seen this movie & absolutely LOVED it. Amazing, so I know the book will be just as great!


If you have any good book recommendations I’d love to know! I hope you all have a great day.
