Alternatively Titled: The LONGEST road trip recap post EVER!!…… Part I :)
From the great metropolis of Felicity, CA we rolled on in to San Diego, where we got to start the day grabbing breakfast with the incredible Jared Bauman. I just adore Jared!! He just launched a series of business workshops, and from what he was telling us over breakfast you do NOT want to miss this!! The first few are in Seattle, Portland, Washington DC, Dallas & Phoenix. If you’re in one of these cities, definitely hit this up!!
From there, we went to get set up for STL where we were being hosted by Jared’s business partner Garrett (they run Shoot Dot Edit together!) at his incredible lounge. How do you even begin to describe someone like Garrett?…..Nicest person on the PLANET! Yea, I’d say that would about do it! :) From the second I met Garrett, I could just tell we were going to be best friends forever. :)
Then it was time to get down to business. We had a PHENOMENAL group in San Diego. From the second they laughed at my really bad “hey, I think I saw a rain drop outside….do you think they’ll call off school” joke, a little piece of my heart was theirs forever. :)
Now here’s where it gets really interesting. Since our good pals The Youngrens couldn’t be there (since they are traipsing all over Asia right now) they had THESE bad boys made for us. Trucker hats with the J&M logo on them….y’know since we are truckin all over the country!! :) LOL!
Check out super cute Marissa Rodriguez & her hubby, who came bearing gifts. A Starbucks gift card, but of course!
From San Diego, we headed up for a back to back stop in LA. In torrential downpours no less! I thought Cali was supposed to have sun!
I am clearly hilarious. To me.
My girl Tira J hard at work.
Yea….he loves me.
And I like him just a little bit too.
A super duper GINORMOUS thank you goes to our girl Jasmine (J* for short!) for hooking us up with this killer space at Calumet. We love you Jaz!! And of course, to Calumet for being so killer in the first place!
From LA we made our way north bound to Napa valley. Where we got to drive by sights like this….
On Superbowl Sunday, Justin & I snuck off with Cooper for some much needed down time. If you ever happen to find yourself in Napa valley in early Feb, you can probably expect to see something like this:
But prolly not this. We live in CT.
The pooch was really digging some time with us all by himself! :)
As you can see it was a GORGEOUS day and we didn’t want it to end, so we spread out a blanket in this parking lot and stared up at the sky. Or imminent drool. Whichever!
LOL! Totally out of focus, but hilarious!
He’s so pretty!
I am Sasha Fierce
Work it, lemme work it
He’s so pretty!
Stay tuned for Part II of the longest road trip recap EVER: San Fran & Seattle. We are still very much on the road and will be rolling into Denver tomorrow!!
***Edit: We wanna give a big thank you to Damion & Julie Hamilton (and their two cutie pie girls) for taking us to lunch at the Rutherford Grill in Napa where they have the most amazing green pepper corn bread EVAH!! Love you guys! The food & the convo were just what we needed!
