Taste The Rainbow

HaPpY First Day of May, LLMers! The sun is out and it’s another beautiful day to be alive in San Diego!! I woke up this morning both eager for the week ahead BUT tired from all this weekend’s fun. What did you do this weekend? Any of you make it to Bloom Bash? I wanted to check-out this annual art exhibition at the San Diego Museum of Art so badly, but in-between the Pauma Valley Country Club Annual Home Tour AND helping my BFF, Leslie, get ready for her housewarming party on Saturday, it just wasn’t in the cards for me this year :( two of my other besties made it out for the event, however, and it sounds like they had the most amazing time. I hope you got to check it out as well! However, if you’re like me and didn’t, fear not as there is still one way you can get your BLOOM on this spring and that’s at The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch.

For over sixty years now, Mother Nature has transformed these rolling hills of north San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world with its nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers. This yearly burst of color has become an annual MUST SEE favorite for both locals and tourists alike – ESPECIALLY for a rainbow lover like myself! I mean just look at all of those gorgeous colors. They bloom each year from early March through Mother’s Day for approximately six to eight weeks and literally announce the arrival of spring here in southern California. Talk about knowing how to make an entrance, y’all?! I better take note ;) it’s also a photoshoot waiting to happen, so we did! HAHA.

For me, visiting The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch is a lot like this Alice + Olivia gown I’m wearing = a NO-BRAINER! From it’s multi-colored detailing, delicately-stitched straps, and deep V’s located in both the front & back, this gown had me in “tiers” upon first sighting ;) and honestly, would have been my wedding dress for our elopement if it had only been in my closet back in 2015! Dang it. Yes, in my eyes, it’s that special of a dress – one of THEE most breathtaking gowns I have ever seen/worn and then I went and paired it with these Katy Perry “Stella” Sandals and, HOT DAMN, someone commit me from colorful giddiness overload!! Lol. I hope you enjoyed this very rainbow-tastic blog post AND have a wonderful first day of May! Who knows maybe you’ll even get a basket! Lol. Do people still do that?? Either way, don’t forget you still have until Sunday, May 14th [Mother’s Day] to see The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch for yourself! It’s a rainbow experience you will not soon forget!! Take your camera!!!
