The worst part about coming home from a great trip is realizing how few photos we actually took. Of course, most of the time I was too busy having fun to worry about it but I wish I had at least taken some with friends and family. I cannot believe how many great memories we have from this trip: beautiful walks along the beach, delicious dinners, relaxing afternoons, late night conversations, impromptu reunions, spending time with family, and a mini getaway to Santa Barbara for wine tasting, pool lounging, star gazing, and driving along "the 1" to the perfect soundtrack. As hard as it was to leave, I am happy to be back to our furry boys and busy with work, but we can't wait to visit again soon!

  1. Hailey! Your pics are gorgeous! And you managed to hit up all my fave places: the beach, SB, and my current hood--Pasadena :) Hope you're doing well.

    1. Hi Tiffany!! Thank you, you're so sweet! Oh my gosh, I love love LOVED Pasadena! I hadn't spent much time there while living in CA but it was fun to drive around there as a tourist for a day. Where are you living out there, what are you up to? I am head over heels for Old Town and Bungalow Heaven but I'd love to know more about fun little spots/areas around there! :)
