First, I’d like to encourage a moment of silence, you know, so we can all appreciate my painfully cheesy Will Ferrell moment.
Without further ado, I’d like to welcome you to Lake Arrowhead! For those of you that haven’t had a chance to visit, Lake Arrowhead is a charming town tucked 80 miles east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino National Forest.
In just an hour and a half, palm trees disappear, and the sweet smell of pine and cedar fills the winding mountain roads. For me, it’s just far enough away from the bustling heart of Los Angeles. I often visit to unplug, unwind, and breathe in the tranquil scenery.
As the weather drops into freezing temperatures, you can find me bundled up in my family’s cozy cabin alongside a warm fire accompanied by a glass of wine and some great company.
When the weather is warmer, the lake is a beautiful place to hike, go out on the boat, or have a quiet little picnic. Without one person in sight, it’s the ideal setting to roll out a comfy blanket, whip up some charcuterie and, of course, a great cocktail to pair. During my last visit, I revisited one of my all time favorite recipes, here.
In the coming weeks, I will return to my favorite southern California escape. I can’t wait to share my next adventures with you all!
