Leah and I have been best friends since we were horse-crazy teenagers, and though our lives have taken us in different directions, hers to California and mine back in Seattle, we've managed to stay in touch and even grown closer through the years (and I can also proudly say that neither of us has lost the horse-craziness!). I've been able to make it down to her neck of the woods at least once a year, and I have a huge appreciation for what keeps her down in SoCal. It's absolutely gorgeous there! We finished out my most recent trip with a last sunset beach excursion. The light was so warm and perfect, I couldn't help turning it into a Leah photo shoot. Check out this gorgeous girl and her gorgeous home!
