It’s hard to believe, but before this weekend I had never ventured over to Catalina Island (an island that is about an hour boat ride away from the coast of Southern California).  One of my best friends celebrated her birthday with a weekend getaway there and we had such a fun time being goofballs all weekend long. 
The island is so much smaller than I expected, and it definitely feels like you’re on a tropical island somewhere.  I loved the colorful houses stacked up on top of each other and how no matter where you were, you were sure to have an endless view of the ocean. 
Have you been to Catalina?  What was your favorite part?

    K & I haven't been to Catalina since we were 10! & it's definitely on our list of weekend excursions!

    The photo of you on the palm tree in that hat is hilarious! & that drink looks to die for!

    I absolutely love Catalina – I was there a couple months ago during summer. It's such a wonderful getaway spot. I hope you're doing well! 🙂

    These pictures are fantastic!!! I love the one of you climbing the tree but not as much as the one of the guy photobombimg you while climbing the tree. I find photobombing annoying but in this case….really funny. Nut really, you should frame the one of you climbing the tree!
