This week’s open road adventure took me to a secluded beach in Laguna. There is nothing better than a little fall weather to provide crisp air, warm sun, and gorgeous, empty beaches.

My life sometimes feels like one, big, long, ridiculously wonderful adventure—but there are times I feel almost guilty about it. Why is that I find myself sleeping under the stars by a campfire every weekend? How is it that I spend my weeknights running through a forest or rock climbing at sunset?
