California winter ☀️🌊🌴 ______________________________________________________ If you haven't been to Santa Barbara, definitely add it to your list! It's the perfect stop while doing a road trip up the California coast 🚙 This beach town has it all including the views 😍
Looking back on this very emu-sing day 🐦😂 _____________________________________________________ Who knew you could visit an emu and ostrich farm while on the way to wine tasting?! These big birds are rare in this part of the world and were amazing to see up close!
Weekends are for wine tasting 🍷 _______________________________________________________ The Santa Ynez Valley is one of my favorite spots for wine tasting. It's proximity to LA makes it an easy trip and it's filled with many family-owned vineyards! Plus, the area is a big producer of Syrah which is one of the most delicious varietals 😋
Happy Mardi Gras! 🎭 ______________________________________________________ While everywhere else it's just a Tuesday... today is Fat Tuesday, the last day of Mardi Gras! 🎉 I had a blast celebrating in New Orleans. Too many parades, beads, daiquiris and King Cake... until next year!

Floating the day away 💦 ______________________________________________ Cenotes are one of my favorite parts of visiting the Yucatán! These natural, freshwater pools are filled with the clearest, blue waters and so far I've found that no two are alike! There are 6,000 on the peninsula so I try to explore a few new ones each time I visit 💙
How each day ends in paradise 😍 ___________________________________________________ Sian Ka'an is one of the most beautiful nature preserves I've visited. The deserted and pristine beaches just south of Tulum are well worth the drive!
