as you know, this past weekend we went on a little getaway to malibu. it was a perfect little refresher, and a chance to finally go to the beach for the first time all summer. we stayed in a yurt, which was kind of a new experience (i stayed in a similar dome thingie on my high school senior retreat in ojai). i’m a little claustrophobic so we ended up sleeping on the pullout instead of the bed near the ceiling, and fyi there are roosters living on the farm. pack your sleeping pills.
it was also a really good little bonding sesh for my brother, sister in law, gideon and me. with both our weddings taking place over the span of 7 months — it was really nice for the four of us to just hang out stress free for the first time in a while. we brought a lot of rosé and a bunch of games and mostly just hung around relaxing.
the yurt (and you can have your friends stay in the other two properties)
el matador has been my favorite beach for a decade, it’s a lot more crowded than it used to be, but it’s gorgeous and still fairly secluded. (be ready for a steep walk down)
