In just under a year of marriage, we’ve officially made it to spring – and with the flowers out and the sun shining, it’s the perfect time to venture outside. As we started 2018 with the purchase of our first home, we’re dealing with our fair share of challenges, but the changing weather is a great reason to let go of the stress and worry that comes with responsibility. Since Southern California has so many great hiking options, we’re taking advantage and taking time to get outside and gain some perspective. Some of our favorite hikes include Runyon Canyon, Escondido Falls, Potato Chip Rock, Murphy Ranch, Crystal Cove and Top of the World. Prepped with our new Timberland gear, we ventured out.
