July: Vacation

Summers were made for vacationing. And so are springs and winters and...

Ok so maybe that's not so realistic, but my little family and I were fortunate enough to take a vacation to California at the beginning of the month. It was lovely; we stayed in Santa Cruz, spent a few days in San Francisco, took a day trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea, and drove to Big Sur.

I took my camera and had only one rule: to enjoy myself. Sometimes when a hobby becomes your job, it's easy to fall into a rut and forget how much you actually enjoy it! I'm so glad to have these images. Don't forget to take your own camera on your summer vacations! Here are a few highlights; I'll spare you the entire gallery. :)
