Sponsor Highlight: Joelle of Something Charming

Happy Monday morning to ya! Did ya have a good weekend?! Brandon and I sure did. We dusted the cobwebs off the our fishing boat and put her in the water for the first time this year. We got a little sun and had a great time with family and friends. 

Today I have a special guest here today, Joelle from Something Charming. Her blog was one of the first blogs I started following when I got into blogging. She's the kind of person that you want as a friend in real life. I hope you'll visit her blog and make a new friend today.

Hello friends of Alisha! My name is Joelle, and I blog over at Something Charming. Alisha has so graciously asked me to post for her today, and I am so happy to do so! We’ve been blog “friends” for a while now, and I’ve really come to admire her and her sweet blog.

Love is always a topic here {and always a topic that I like to write about}. So, I thought that I’d share a few of my favorite dates that my husband of two years and I like to go on together.

Robert and I are lucky enough to live less than an hour from California’s Central Coast, and one of the most wonderful wine regions in the country. We’ve been known to pack a picnic, drive up the coast, and share a few tastings at our favorite wineries.


We live in a small/medium sized beach town about halfway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. Ventura’s downtown is quaint and sweet, but there’s also a lot to do. We like to bring our dog with us, since most of the shops are dog friendly, and get lunch at our favorite brewery.


Every other year or so we always end up getting Disneyland passes. We both grew up in Orange County, and grew up at the happiest place on earth. It’s always fun to be a kid again, and spend the entire day running around and riding our favorites.

Thanks Alisha for having me today, and letting me share my favorite dates! It’s been fun!
xoxo, Joelle

    My husband and I just moved to the South Bay area of LA a few months ago. We came from Missouri so we're LOVING the beach and all the wonderful spots around here. We want to head up toward Santa Barbara sometime soon, and judging from these beautiful photos we definitely need to stop in Ventura, too!
