Back to the beach part 2!!! Yes!

I found out from one of my friends that Kristin and Steven were making a podcast about their time on Laguna beach and I was HYPE! Loved watching Laguna on MTV when I was younger. Each episode recap brought me back to when I was in HS… getting all the feels. Glad they are doing season two! Can’t wait to listen
