Newport Beach and San Diego Photo Diary

Hi everyone! I'm back! Sorry for the lack of posts the last couple of weeks. I wound up getting pneumonia and getting really sick while I was still in Arizona, and spent the last couple of weeks resting and coughing. And there's a funny thing about outfit photos- you have to get dressed in something other than yoga pants to take them, which hasn't exactly happened for the last couple of weeks.  I'm still in Arizona until my doctors clear me to fly home to Virginia, and I'm still feeling really sick, so it looks like I may be here a while longer, but I wanted to pop in and share some of my photos from Newport Beach (and a brief day trip to San Diego to ice skate on the beach), where I spent Christmas with Brett and my family this year. Newport is one of my favorite places ever, and I can't wait to spend the summer there again this summer.
