Happy May! It’s my favorite season here in SoCal. Just warm enough to venture outside and explore, but just cool enough to not worry about possible dehydration on your adventures ( a far cry from some summer’s here!) The waves are warm and welcoming. Day moon is always beckoning. The beautiful blooming flowers, summer succulents and spring breeze is enough to get me up earlier and in bed just a little bit later. I’ve been editing my book by the beach daily, tea in hand, exploring my own quaint little beach town, switching between grainy film and crisp digital. Faint captures. Sleepy silhouettes. Everyone has a surfboard, a story and a smile. I’d marry every palm tree. A colorful, dreamy landscape waits to greet me around every corner. It feels beautiful, fresh, new. It feels like home.

April is in full swing. Dreamy days, beautiful blue skies, arabian sand. Perfect for handstands and morning runs. Raelie and I happily saw a rattlesnake on our hike. He was not happy to see us. Yoga every damn day. Raw food on the table. Smoothies in the morning. Freckles peeking out everywhere. A hint of color on every corner.
It all started on instagram. My friend Genevieve was in town. She’s a stylist from LA who I met on my first international commercial. And she’s a big hippie at heart.
I always get excited when I see an LA local around San Diego because 1. LET’S HANG OUT and 2. IF WE DON’T HANG OUT I’M GOING TO STALK WHERE YOU GO IF IT’S BEAUTIFUL AND GO THERE TOO.
In the case of Gen, it was scenario #2.
Since she was only in town briefly, homegirl was gone by the time I hit her up. But the photo of her in a huge field of flowers while she was here stayed seared in my brain.
Where is this magnificent flower place? I asked myself over and over again. Finally, I headed to the google machine. I barely got passed “ San Diego fl” before The Flower Fields showed up and my heart sang arias.
A fifteen minute drive and $25 season pass later, I was in heaven. This place is beyond (beyond beyond!) beautiful. For a flower child like me, it’s a dream come true to wander around a preserve so gorgeous, thoughtful and wonderful. From the extraordinary colors to the wide variety of wildlife, I was totally enthralled. Fifty acres of Tecolote Giant Ranunculus to gawk at and fall in love with.
If you have a flower field by your house that you had no idea about, do some research and then GO TO IT. NOW. Don’t wait another moment! Normally they are only open in the Spring for a few weeks.
I loved this amazing way to explore my own home town.
Who knew there were such beautiful things right in our own backyards?
