Happy December, party people! First off, a sincerest thank you to my sister, Shannon, for thinking up this blog post title. Second, today is the fourth anniversary (or "blog-iversary," as some say...) of LunaVida. It blows my mind that I began writing this blog in 2012. Doesn't that seem so long ago? Realizing that actually makes me really proud that I stuck with it, though. LunaVida is definitely a labor of love - it seriously can take a lot of time. But I love it. I also love that you keep coming back to check in and if you ever have any suggestions or recommendations, I would love to hear them. It's no fun to write this if you aren't enjoying reading it, so please let me know what you do and don't like. And, most importantly, whether you have been a loyal reader since the beginning (I'm talking to you, family members) or just happened upon my blog today, thank you for following along with LunaVida!

How has your December been so far? Last week, I decided to book a last minute flight to come out to Ohio, and meet my new niece, Nora. I've been here for the past few days, spending some "Q.T." with my family and enjoying the Cincinnati life. I am about to head home to San Diego for a couple days, but then on Friday I head back east again, but this time to Savannah, Georgia. I'm maid of honor in my best friend Chelsea's wedding and it's bachelorette party time, baby! I cannot wait to celebrate her upcoming marriage!! (What a month it's already been - and it's not even Christmas yet!)
Hi there! How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Matt and I have had such a nice and relaxing past few days. Plus, it's been raining, which is such a cozy luxury in Southern California. It even straight up stormed today while we were taking a walk on the beach in Del Mar. I don't know about you, but I love getting caught in the rain (yes, exactly like the catchy song says). There's something so freeing and energizing about it, ya know?

Today's outfit post is actually from a few months ago, back at the end of summer, when we were still living in Phoenix. You know what gives it away? Well, my old street, for one. And then the fact that I am still wearing open-toed shoes. Most days in San Diego, I could still wear these, but this weekend this would not fly. Either way, though, I think this outfit would also be super cute with knee high or ankle boots. So if your climate is chillier, but you still want to wear an outfit similar to this, try adding some boots to winter-ize it!

Hello, and sorry for the lack in posts! After the election, though, I needed to take a little break... but I'm back! And I have a few tidbits of goodness to share. First, just in case ya don't know, Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Even though Thanksgiving has never been a hugely celebrated day for Matt and me (we are vegetarians, after all), I still get excited for it due to the fact that it officially kicks off the holiday season!! Second, San Diego has been so overcast and chilly (then again "chilly" for me means somewhere in the 60s...), which gives me allllllll the cozy feelings. Lastly, I have an amazing giveaway in store for you today - you can win a gift from The Enclosed at the end of this post!

Happiest of Fridays to you! After having spent the past few weeks in SoCal with me, my sister and niece left San Diego today for their journey back home. Having them leave is always a bummer for two reasons; one being the fact that I love having them around, of course, and the other being my sister takes the best blog photos. Seriously! She'll not only put up with taking them... but she actually enjoys it!! Now to find a way to keep her around in Cali with us forever... ;)

Is there anything better than having family in town? Yep, there is: when you just moved to a new city and you get to explore your new surroundings together! My sister, niece, and I have explored around downtown San Diego (we even checked out The Cat Cafe!), Balboa Park, the Del Mar dog beach, Los Angeles, and some of the very best that Southern California has to offer. Now to take Matt to my new found favorite places and continue our own adventures in our new home!
Happy almost Hallo-weekend! My sister, niece, and I are headed up to L.A. for the next few days to meet up with my mom and stepdad, who are flying in from Ohio. Both my mom and sister have late October birthdays, so we will be galavanting around Los Angeles, celebrating them! Any must sees or recommendations for L.A. would be greatly appreciated :)
I love that some of my summer favorites, such as this cold shoulder shirt, can work so well for fall. In burgundy and worn with a plaid blanket scarf, you just can't go wrong with mixing summer and autumn pieces like this, eh?!
