I'm Back!

IMG_0587

I would love to tell you that I missed the internet this weekend, but that would be a bold-faced lie. My mom, sister and I escaped our sons and drove to Santa Barbara, where we ate, drank, lounged, shopped, explored, gossiped, strolled, and then did it all over again.

I lived in Santa Barbara for five years, which is sort of ideal for me, because we don't have to play guessing games to find the good restaurants, or the beaches with minimal tar-foot potential, but it's still warm and lovely and VACATION.

There were an unusual number of babies and weddings this weekend. Congratulations to everyone who, in some capacity or another, welcomed a new person into their family. I myself was eating brie and shopping for shoes.

I'm not sure when I would have gotten tired of all the lounging about. I'm pretty sure I could live a life of pool-side wine sipping and novel reading for quite some time without feeling moved to do something more complex than stroll peacefully on the beach.

Now it's Monday, and I'm back. How was your weekend?

  6. I'm jealous. My weekend consisted of baby sitting, dog sitting and laundry.

  7. Lots of rain and lots of laundry, so it was basically the complete opposite or your weekend, except for the wine. There's always wine, rain or shine.

    Glad you had a great time. It looks and sounds divine!

  15. I can't help but think we'd all be better off leaving the Internet behind and entirely pursuing other activities.
