This is the most photos you will probably ever see me share in a single post, but it is for good reason! For only the 3rd time in the seven years I’ve been blogging, I had someone else take my photos! And let me tell you…it was SUCH a treat. Christy from Christy Golder Photography reached out and asked me if I would like to collaborate since we are both in the San Diego area…and after looking at her portfolio, I jumped at the chance! We decided to meet up at a central location (Westfield UTC Mall) and snapped as many photos as possible in about an hour and a half time frame. As most of you probably know by now, I take all of my own photos for the blog with a tripod and remote. So to be able to just walk around and have someone snap pics as we strolled along was a dream come true. If you are local and in need of a photographer for family/lifestyle photos, wedding or even boudoir pics…Christy is your girl! She is so easy to talk to and I felt like I’d known her for years!

At the end of the day we stopped into Eureka for a quick “mocktail”. This was one of their fancy drinks called the ruby grapefruit something rather (minus the alcohol). We were running out of time so I made sure to come back with my mom a few weeks later and we took advantage of their “Hoppy Hour” specials. We ordered the lollipop corndogs, mac n’ cheese balls and the chicken nachos to split. And Oh My Gosh was everything DELICIOUS! You can check out the full menu here. I used to work right across the street from Westfield UTC Mall and am certain this would have been my go-to lunch spot had it been around when I worked there! P.S. The photos below were taken by me but all photos above were taken by Christy.
