Blanket, Food, Company, Sun!

Who else loves picnics? During this pandemic, I found my love for picnics! I am proud to say that I have become an expert picnicker. Picnics are so easy, fun, and cost-effective, which is why I love them so much! Give me some sunshine, and I’m in a picnic mood!

Recently, I’ve been going on picnics with my family and my friends. My brother and I have the best time going on picnics together, enjoying the food, and laughing about the most random things! We have a collection of pictures from all of our picnics that I love to look back on and cherish.

I always have my signature picnic blanket with my signature reusable Trader Joe’s bag. I like to make chicken salad wraps or sandwiches to pack. On the way to my destination, I always stop at a grocery store to pick up extra snacks and drinks!

I like to set up picnics in a scenic area, with a nice view of the ocean. I have found Palos Verdes, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, and San Pedro to be my favorite places. Part of the fun of picnics is finding new and amazing places. It’s almost like a scavenger hunt for the greenest grass with a breathtaking view.

I plan to up my picnic game by buying new picnic blankets & coming up with new picnic lunch recipes! Although COVID hit us hard, unfortunately, it has also resulted in me finding picnicking to be a true hobby of mine.
