“Lighthouses are not just stone, brick, metal, and glass. There’s a human story at every lighthouse…” 
ELINOR DEWIRE

Is it just me or is there something inexplicably charming about old lighthouses? Living in Newport, RI for a brief time cultivated an irrevocable craving in me to know and explore the stories behind the beautiful old archicture in the cities we live, so I was a little giddy when we decided to spend a bright Saturday morning exploring the old lighthouse on the bluffs of Point Loma.

From Ship Life to Island Living | Our First Month on Coronado

Drinkable warm sunshine, playful breezes, tiny unique shops all in a row. A little 1940’s house surrounded by citrus trees and windows with white trim. Brownies waiting on the porch on move-in day, gifts of tangy lemons and sweet, juicy oranges from neighboring trees. The sound of taps at sunset; glittering seas in every direction. This is the little world I’ve been lost in for the last month or so, our new chapter for the next three years: life on Coronado island.

Birch Aquarium | What to Do in San Diego

My first son Kai has always been absolutely obsessed with the ocean and all its creatures. That’s why for his first birthday when LTJG Husband was deployed, I took him to Birch Aquarium in La Jolla instead of throwing a party and even at 12 months old, he loved every minute of it. Last weekend, we got a chance to go back, and since this time around we had ‘Daddy’ with us, Kai loved it even more.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Birch Aquarium yet, here’s a few reasons why you should!

Day Dates Are Underrated

LTJG Husband has a huge inspection on ship coming up and he spent the week working overtime to prepare, which meant sleeping on ship twice this week since he also had duty on Saturday. By the end of the week, we were both wiped out and really needed a little Sunday funday action. Nana offered to watch the boys for an hour or two so we could slip away and get some much needed time together (I think we’ve had about 45 minutes together without the boys since he got back this month). We agreed immediately: We needed brunch, and we needed the beach. We headed to Leucadia for some brunch at Le Papagayo and to get our tired bums in the sand at Beacons beach.
