Updates, News, & Happy Thanksgiving!

 Hi Ocean Dreamers,
Are you excited for Thanksgiving?
I am!
Yep, this is the same picture I posted last year.
Ha ha, hope you don't mind...

Tomorrow I am headed to my cabin
in Idaho to freeze my but off (the low is
a negative twenty degrees) and spend time
with my family. This year we are going to
a Thanksgiving buffet at a restaurant
as opposed to preparing a meal...
I don't mind that at all! 
I've been turkey fasting so I can eat a
all of the turkey I can handle! Ha ha.

Some of you may have figured out
via my twitter that I have been in 
Utah for some time, hanging out with my family.

As a little girl and in High School, 
I always dreamed of moving to California.
I knew that the ocean was in my blood.
My wishes came true, and for the past 7
years I lived and truly loved living near the beach.
Recently, however, some changes have come up in
my life that have led me back to Utah, 
where my family is. 
Even though I miss California sincerely,
I know I will be back there soon. 
My BK, friends, and my ocean dreams are there...
therefore my heart is there too.
And honestly, my heart is breaking. 
 Ha ha, thought I would lighten the mood
with this silly/sad picture.
Three years ago my hair was THIS short!!
I like it long now. :)

I hope you will continue to follow along
with my journey in Utah for the time being.
Despite the changes I have realized one thing:
My dreams can come true wherever I live.
And YES I'm keeping my blog name.
I only need to make my ocean dreams become a reality.
Part of that reality is sharing my passion for
love, family, fashion, and the list goes on...
with you.

More exciting news?
I'm now a regular
Featured Blogger at 
the new site called

blog post HERE.

out and perhaps even joined the site!
It's fun, kinda like FB but with
a shopping twist! 

Okay, so my text is doing strange things
right now  and won't let me change

Anyway, I hope you all have an amazing
I am thankful for so many things.
I'm thankful for my BK and friends 
in CA and my family here in UT.

I know so many more of my 
ocean dreams will come true!
I hope all of yours do too.
