Monterey 2012

For Christmas we headed to California to enjoy the holiday with my family. After all the gifts were opened we — my parents, two brothers Tyler and Austin, and me and Nathaniel — loaded up the car and headed to Monterey. The day after Christmas my cousin Kourtney, and her husband, Alden, met up with us and we headed to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The aquarium was awe-inspiring — despite the crowds!

After the aquarium we took a short break before Tyler, Nathaniel, Alden, Kourtney and I explored the gorgeous 17-mile drive. The weather was on and off storming, so the ocean was choppy and the clouds in the sky were dark and gloomy but still aglow with the most beautiful light. We ran onto the sand, wondered at the magnitude of the ocean and felt the salty air whip through our hair. The only way I can describe it: Blissful.

The photo speaks for itself, no?

Me and Kourt.

With my love.


The day ended up being one of those accidentally peaceful, blissful memories that will linger in my mind forever in all its windy, salty, California-glory.
