MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: DECEMBER 3–9, 2018!

A rainy week in Los Angeles, seeing the Favourite with Kiki, shaking jelly beans with friends at home, packing our office, and spending the weekend in the snow in Big Bear Lake, California.

Enjoy!

A foggy night

Untitled
Found our accommodation through the fog

Untitled
Untitled
This cabin was way bigger than I thought, I truly thought what I booked online was one room, but it had a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a bedroom! So cute.

Untitled
Untitled
We stayed in the John Muir cabin. My mind was blown that Zach didn’t know who John Muir was…maybe he’s only a local California hero we learn about in school? Without googling, tell me who he is and where you are from. I’m so curious. But anyways, the best part about this cabin was the painted walls, I loved the pinecones…but wasn’t sure what the poop smear beneath was supposed to be.

We were without coffee but thankful for the McDonalds on the corner.

Untitled

Wow is there a better view from a McDonalds out there? (I mean, probably sure but this one is pretty good)

I brought Zach here because he does really love skiing and winter things, I’m a real novice but I conquered my fears and rented skis anyways.

Ribs at Black Diamond Tavern

Untitled
The restaurant was so friggin’ cold, I was wearing my coat the whole dinner. Also the fireplace was filled with fake candles instead of a fire…that fire could have helped potentially.

Saw on the map that the lake was pretty close to where we stayed, so we walked over to check it out. Passed SO MANY incredible snow people.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
SO. MANY. Snow. People.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
SO. The drought in California is still going on, so I guess should have been no surprise that the lake would be much smaller than it should be. Sad to see so many houses that were once probably lake front that are now like…grass front.

  1. John Muir is a big deal in the Unitarian Universalist church; he’s a founder of the Sierra Club too!

    What is a National Park or State Park that you think everybody should visit?
    – All of them before they’re destroyed by fracking!

    Mountains or beach?
    – Both, but beach, mostly.

    What does your name mean?
    – Apparently I’m a goddess of a river in Ireland.

  2. I’m always impressed with how much you pack into a week. It makes me feel tired just reading! Also I actually vaguely know who John Muir is. Impressed with myself.

    – What is a National Park or State Park that you think everybody should visit?
    The Cevennes national park in France is amazing. In the UK, its hard to choose but I think I’d go for Snowdonia. Never been to any in America but I hope to change that.

    – Mountains or beach?
    Both, can I have both? Impossible to choose.

    – What does your name mean?
    It means ‘blossoming’ or ‘to flower’ apparently!
