My reading world has been pretty chill lately. I’ve had a streak of mediocre books, so I’m hoping I can break that spell soon and get back into things. That said, May’s reads and reviews includes some of the better books as of late. You know the drill – here…

How to Spend Two Nights on Catalina Island

The only word that comes to mind when I think of Catalina Island is enchanting. This place is the best-kept gem of California – we felt a world away and couldn’t believe we only were 26 miles off the coast! We put a lot of time into planning how to…
