Feeling refreshed after a weekend soaking in the sun (with sunscreen on of course!). Since Blake and I haven’t been able to fly anywhere together for vacation or any small trips, we have been taking full advantage of weekend trips. We visited The US Grant last weekend in San Diego. I didn’t realize is was part of the Starwood family of hotels (and dog friendly!). Blake is an SPG member so we always love to stay at SPG hotels to rack up those loyalty points. We LOVE going to San Diego for the weekend since Blake used to live down there.
These set of photos are from a trip we took to Santa Barbara about 2 months ago. We stayed at the Kimpton Goodland and had a great weekend. Of course Lola came with us since they are also dog friendly. Trust me when I say I am always on the lookout for great California hotels that are openly dog friendly. Who doesn’t love traveling with their fur fam?? This particular day, my beloved photographer and friend, Felicia showed us around her stomping grounds in Santa Barbara. She took us to the Funk Zone for some wine tasting and we had literally the best day ever. Since alot of the tasting rooms are also dog friendly, we brought Lola along for a day of rosé in the sunshine. Lola looks “thrilled” in the family photo we took but I promise you she had a fun day. It’s usually a bit chillier up north so I was overdressed but happy I brought along a jacket for the evening. We spent most of our day glued to a seat outside at Muni Winemakers. If you haven’t tried it, their Bright Pink Rosé is sublime. While I am in IVF treatment, I have to say the two things I miss are coffee and wine. For me, it’s not about getting drunk, or needing that caffeine to fuel my day. It’s about the ritual of taking the time to sit and sip and enjoy. Whether that is coffee or wine, I love how our day brought so many people together. Eating, sipping and enjoying are on the top of my list on how I like to spend my free time. Don’t underestimate the little things. They make life so full. I am having my uterine lining biopsy done today so I will try to update you on how it went on instagram stories. I am still working on my full post of IVF round 2 so bear with me! Also, stay tuned tomorrow for a post very close to my heart. Have a great week my friends.
