Location: Malibu, California
Last month I went to visit my friends Rachel and Shawn in Los Angeles for my birthday weekend. My only stipulation on what we had to do during the weekend was to spend my actual birthday in Malibu. I had heard great things about the Malibu Farm Cafe and so we spent a blissful afternoon wandering the beach, watching the surfers, and indulging at the cafe at the end of the pier. We ended up sitting right next to the actress Ellen Page and her girlfriend- a pretty huge celebrity sighting! These kind of days are my favorite, days where I have no agenda but to be out in nature and to hang out with friends. California is one of my favorite places on the planet and the rocky coastline and the deep blue water make me so happy. Rachel has been my travel companion forever and it was simply the best to get to spend my birthday hanging out in Rachel and Shawn’s new city. I’m already counting the days until I get to go back.
