Holiday season in San Diego definitely revved up this past weekend and it was filled with: tree decorating, holiday parades, wildfires, flea markets, tacos, 70 degree weather…the usual here.
On a real note, the fires that have been spreading throughout California are super scary and my heart hurts for those affected. I remember leaving school early in highschool, the air filled with smoke and ash, wearing a mask on my face, and hearing from my classmates how they were either evacuating their homes or the fire had already gotten to their house. So scary at the time because I knew so many people who were personally impacted by them. We need rain so so badly right now, not these santa ana’s. Very grateful to live near the water and out of the hot zone for fires.
Anyways, this weekend was very chill. Friday there was a photo shoot at our house for a lawnmower/gardening company. Always pretty fun watching how much work and how many people go into making a commercial for a 15 second ad. I went to the gym and stayed in that night. Saturday my mom and I went to the San Diego Makers Arcade which is a huge market on the Broadway Pier downtown, filled with local makers and food vendors right alongside the water. We shopped around while live Christmas music being sung and cocktails were in hand. I bought a really pretty macrame/plant wall hanging I’ll be putting up in my bathroom and showing you guys soon! Such a fun market, one of the best I’ve been to in SD I think. I was planning on going out that night but ended up falling asleep before 11pm haha. Being a grandma is so nice sometimes. Sunday was the Parade of Lights, which is when everyone dresses their boats in lights (as you would a house) and they cruise along harbor while onlookers are posted up on land with blankets and their families. We rode bikes down and poured some drinks and did the whole shebang. This is one of the best traditions we have in my family for sure.
This week I’m planning out details for Tahiti, eating very clean (bcuz #bikinis), gym errday, throwing a little holiday party next sunday, and finalizing xmas gifts for the fam. Still on that vegan game if any of you are wondering. With the occasional hiccup here and there, but still!
