Hi, everyone! This past weekend, I drove up to Santa Cruz with my best friend Gina (who you’ll see often on my blog) to visit our other best friend, Ariel! It was my first real road trip and the drive up was surprisingly not too bad. Granted, I probably would have been miserable without Gina. She laughed at all my lame jokes, sang Taylor Swift’s “Fearless” with me on repeat like 34292981 times, listened to my weird folk music without a complaint, and didn’t become a back seat Betty when my driving became questionable. What a great friend, amiright?? After an 8 hour drive, we made it! Santa Cruz is such a cool, laid back town with some of the most interesting people. The style is so different from SoCal, but it was refreshing to see. You could definitely tell that Gina and I weren’t from there. Santa Cruz also… View Post
