San Diego: #TreatYoSelf Weekend Getaway

Y’all, there’s something remarkably calming and therapeutic about the ocean.  I was starting to feel a bit burned out with the daily grind of work, gym, homework, rinse and repeat, so I decided to take a solo trip to San Diego for some rejuvenation.  Even in October, the Phoenix heat can be exhausting.  In a true Parks and Rec, Tommy and Donna fashion, I had a #treatyoself weekend.

I stayed in Coronado at the iconic Hotel Del Coronado, which was absolutely stunning.  I ate some amazing food, met some really cool people, drank awesome wine, slept late, ran along the beach, and ate a life-changing breakfast burrito in Pacific Beach.  Long story short, San Diego is unbelievably gorgeous, and I can’t wait for an excuse to go back!

Living on the opposite side of the country from where I grew up means lots of uncharted territory for me to explore.  Call it wanderlust, but I love taking a trip somewhere new.  Whether it’s a short day-trip to somewhere here in Arizona, or a 5 hour drive to the California coast, it is always exciting.  More importantly, I think it’s good to do some exploring by yourself.  Here are a few of my favorite pics from my getaway (only a month late)!
