welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Adventure: Leo Carrillo

How do we do family time? Camping. Our favorite way to unplug and reconnect. Leo Carrillo State Park is a short car ride away and gives us a chance to do some beach camping. Added bonus: Leo Carrillo is a dog friendly beach which makes Willie Nelson and Buju happy. Score! Leo Carrillo
