our valentines day.












we spent our love day in santa barbara, california with close friends. we arrived late the night before, and woke up when the sun wafted in through the balcony door. (i forgot what an amazing phenomenon it is to be woken up by the sun. talk about the perfect start to my day!) we made crepes for breakfast and ate them out by the pool - then took a sailboat ride together, and found a little fishing boat that had literally been overtaken by seals - kinda gross, but mostly entertaining. we explored downtown for a few hours, lazily wandering in and out of shops and stopping to soak in the sun-filled streets. santa barbara is seriously dreamy, it feels like you are walking the streets of a beach town out of a disney movie.

we hauled some blankets and a picnic basket out to the bluffs and watched the sunset in between catch-phrase rounds. that sunset, those cliffs, it was almost too good to be true. the rest of our night was spent devouring mexican food and laughing in the hot tub. would perfection be too strong a word? the day was absolute magic from start to finish. however - creamy sunset and delicious nachos aside, i was mostly grateful to be with my sweet boy. having him by my side makes every adventure about 8,000 times greater.

  10. Wow that looks like a blast! I have been craving the ocean so bad lately, which is unusual for me cuz I'm not much of a beach person, but i don't think anything sounds better than that right now! Love the pics, you guys are cute. The two black and white ones are my fav. So classy.
