I’m not gonna lie, this week has dragged for me (even though it was a short one!). Probably because I’ve been anxiously awaiting my little trip down to San Diego which starts today! As much as we love where we live now, David and I really do miss living in San Diego. We miss the food, the variety of each neighborhood and the fact that there’s always something going on. With that in mind, we plan to eat our way through all our old favorite spots and, of course, do some shopping/ thrifting. Can’t wait! Time to finish packing…

This is a belated post. Every couple months I get an itch to travel somewhere and I’m experiencing that itch now! David and I have some ideas in mind – Australia to visit family, Scandinavia because it would be awesome, or maybe explore places right here in the US that we’ve always wanted to see like the PNW or parts of the South. For now, I’ve been looking nostalgically through photos from our last trip, which I thought I’d share now.

A couple months ago we headed north on a road trip to the Monterey Bay. We had the best time! Not only is the destination wonderful, but the drive on the 101 is so pretty. It’s the sort of trip that reminds me of all the reasons why California is such a special place to live. We stopped for lunch at Metropulos Fine Foods in Santa Barbara. OMG, go there, it was so good!  We stayed at the Spindrift Inn right in the heart of Cannery Row in Monterey.  This was the view from our room.  I miss it!


We packed a lot of fun into this little trip including hiking in Big Sur, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, watching the sunset at Pebble Beach and eating delicious food (here and here).

Best of all, we even got to do some antiquing! I really do have the best husband in the world for not only agreeing to spend part of our trip looking at old things in an old building, but actually getting into it. If you ever find yourself in Monterey, check out the Cannery Row Antique Mall.  I had my eye on a lot of things, but ultimately settled on some very cute accessories that will be great for my own house or for clients.  I got all this loot for under $50.
