Frivolous Friday: Shwarma, Getting Real at the DMV and Spring ‘Snow”

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

Hung out in South Park this week!  We were there mainly for lunch (more on that in a bit) but arrived early so we could walk around and see the sights…because when you can do your morning walk in an amazing place, why not?

And the art was fantastic!   (Who can resist an explosion of PURPLE?  Certainly not me!)

Art is clearly celebrated in this unique neighborhood – between all the beautiful wall murals and the historic homes we really enjoyed our stroll!

Then it was time for the REAL reason we were in South Park:  LUNCH!  Here’s the scoop – I saw a piece on the NATIONAL news (link HERE) saying that Yelp’s top restaurant in the country was a shawarma food truck-parked in SAN DIEGO!

Gasp! The number one restaurant was nearby????  Well I think you can guess what happened next.  I grabbed my friend who’s always up for adventure

and we set a date!  We went on a weekday when it opened and the line wasn’t too long (sounds like the wait is longer on the weekends) I had the Chicken Shwarma Platter – with homemade hummus (so light and fluffy!), Pita, Tabbouleh Salad and super tender chicken shwarma.

Seriously yummy – and so much food I saved half for lunch the next day.   So if you are feeling adventurous, I definitely recommend it!

Yep, this happened #2:

Felt OH SO LUCKY to get my Real ID from the DMV in just under 23 minutes!  Woot and SCORE!

(I made an early morning appointment 3 months in advance – so that’s my advice if you want to score too!)

Yep, this happened #3:

Have you been enjoying all the trees filled with blossoms?  I just love this time of year!

They dazzled us at night at Balboa Park….

And made me smile one morning while out walking….this is an “Everlasting Pear” tree, by the way.

And yes I laid down to photograph all the magnificence!

Even their petal drop makes me smile – because it’s the best kind of ‘snow’ you can get!


What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!

And do you know what else I’m blessed by?     Capturing amazing moments for you to treasure for a lifetime!
