Hello! My name is Jeana and this is my blog, Surf and Sunshine.

An “OG” site with beginnings way back in 2011, my site embraces the laid-back nature of Southern California and is designed for the average person and family.

I share a wide variety of topics including gardening, recipes, family life, health, beauty and of course, travel.

It’s nice to meet you, and I hope you’ll enjoy and find useful some of my musings from the land of palm trees and sunshine. Welcome!
