Sweet Country Charm

Lately it seems that everyone living in Southern California has a Disneyland annual pass. I know this because my Instagram feed usually consist of a weekly photo of somebody wearing Minnie ears or a sunset post of the enormous Mickey Ferris wheel.  While everyone is at Disneyland I'm over at Knott's Berry Farm but I can't complain, Knott's has a sweet country charm, see for yourself! 

With old fashion games and hand made wood work. 

Oh and not to forget a wooden roller coaster!

With tons of gifts that range from sweet  berry preserves...

to hand blown glass pieces made on site. 

Thought these little horses were adorable!

One of the things I enjoy at Knott's is the authentic Denver and Rio Grande Narrow Gauge train that has been in operation since the early 1920's but has been at the park since January 1952. 

Part of the park has had some new additions and they've incorporated new rides and spruced up some of the areas of the park. 

Another area of the park is known as Fiesta Village where you will find yourself in a Mexican inspired amusement park with Mexican swings, flying hats, and Mexican food. 

 My husband and I have annual passes to Knott's but we don't go on a weekly basis, prior to this visit the last time we went was in September which was right around the time the entire park goes through a Halloween transformation. Knott's is famous for their annual Knott's Scary Farm, so naturally they have a museum in the park dedicated to the scary transformation they do every year. 

So if you find yourself  wanting some country charm make your way to Knott's Berry Farm, you will definitely be happy.

Social Media

Social Media has made such an impact in our lives in the recent years. People have Facebook to stay in touch with family & friends, LinkedIn to network, Twitter to share thoughts of 144 characters, Pineterest to share ideas, Snapchat to send quick thoughts and Instagram to share a quick photo. I tend to be a very private person and in my personal life I share certain glimpses of my life  through Instagram. So when I started this blog I figured I would create an Instagram strictly for this blog. You can follow me  here on Instagram and  also on Bloglovin.  

You might be wondering what can you expect from my Instagram feed? Most bloggers post something on a daily basis from what they eat for breakfast to what outfit they are wearing for the day. To be honest I'm usually rushing out the door and eating a banana for breakfast, which isn't really Instagram worthy. So here is a little glimpse of some pictures that made it to Instagram but not to the blog. 

Hope to see you guys on Instagram!

LA Lights

The Los Angeles Zoo has created an experience that combines lights, animals, disco balls, and more lights. It's called LA Zoo Lights. My husband and I went this past Friday and I wanted to share a glimpse of that night with you all. While real animals are not part of this event, you will see animal light displays. However on our visit an elephant and alligator did make an unexpected appearance, so you never know who might make a surprise visit.

LA Zoo Lights runs nightly through January 4th, 2015.
