In the beginning of October, London and I enjoyed a trip I originally planned for someone else.  At first it made me nervous that I’d feel a longing-ness for something that was no more, but quite the opposite actually happened.  It re-confirmed my present state of single-ness.  The ability to journey and adventure freely, without any worry for another human being.  On a Friday, after work, we headed out to Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown to see TOPS and the Allah-Las, and meet up with a couple of friends who already planned to be out there.  We spent the night camping in the back next to the horse corrals (this is a real thing). Then the next morning we headed to Joshua Tree. We grabbed some brunch from The Natural Sisters Cafe and then entered the National Park.  It was hot and already mid-day, so we opted to explore around points of interest such as Skull Rock, and the Barker Dam (which was all dried up).

The following week I went to the Colbie Caillat acoustic tour concert with my mom as this year’s birthday gift.  My former co-worker grew up with her so we also enjoyed a special meet-and-greet before the show.

And if that wasn’t enough, the next night I went down to the House of Blues with a couple girls to see Dan Humphrey’s band, MOTHXR (and basically indulge in my recent Gossip Girl obsession).

In other news, the weather is warm as ever, making beach days still a possibility.  I haven’t been reading as much lately, but I have Find Her and All Is Not Forgotten in the queue.  I’ve also been hitting bootcamp at YogaSix, Pilates at Core40 and barre at The Bar Method pretty consistently.  Trying to cook more, so expect some easy and healthy recipe posts to come!
