    Whale Watching in Orange County

    Whale watching is an incredible way to see beautiful whales (of all kinds!) in their natural habitat! We are given the opportunity to go to them and leave them undisturbed, in their natural home (the wide open ocean). As my husband and I have gotten older, we’ve researched the treatment of these animals (and others) more and more, and we have made the decision to never participate in animal tourism that hurts animals. We are thankful for opportunities like these, which allow us to enjoy these beautiful creatures without supporting mistreatment of them. My husband and I have had several amazing whale watching experiences over the years in both Orange…

    Our Outdoor, Fall Wedding in Sonoma County, California

    I walked down the aisle and said “I do” to my best friend 4 years ago. They have been the most amazing years full of love and adventure. Our day was perfect because we committed to love one another before God, our family, and our closest friends. I have been so blessed to have my amazing husband by my side ever since, and I can honestly say that I love him even more today than I did back then. Our day was captured by the very talented Emily Blake Photo. We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. We only recommend products and services that…

    5 Places to Kayak in Sonoma County

    Any kayaking fans out there? My husband and I have been kayaking together since our 4th date. At the time, we lived in Southern CA and would rent kayaks by the hour in Long Beach. Over the years, we have sought out kayaking (or other boating) adventures every time we traveled. We have kayaked with alligators in the Pearl River in Mississippi and in the Pacific Ocean under Coronado Bridge in San Diego. We’ve rowed in a beautiful Victorian-style wooden boat in the Avon River (in Bath, England) and paddled our way through the Wailua River (in Kauai). I could go on, but I think you get the point…my husband…
