Yes, it is summer time for this girl! Pepperdine gets out of school outrageously early, but I’m not complaining. I spent my first day of summer hiking and wandering around Malibu State Park, a beautiful reserve in the Santa Monica Mountains, with my friend/sister Jessica. It was the perfect weather- sunny and warm with a cool breeze. We meandered near the creek, found a rope swing made with a log, and peeked inside an abandoned water tower. All in all, I felt extremely adventurous and cool!
