Once a year I get together with my best gal pals from college.
We went to a small liberal arts college in the hills of Santa Barbara called Westmont.
The year we graduated (I won't tell you the year since I have just recently realized that I am old.), we went away to a friends parents cabin in Big Bear.
And so started the tradition of meeting once a year and going away together.
This year we were blessed to be able to get away to my roommates parents vacation home in Cambria, on the Pacific Ocean in central California. What a gift this place is! They originally bought the property to build a Christian retreat center, but once they realized the cost and hoops that they would have to go through to build anything that close to the ocean they remodeled the existing home and then set out to sell it.
However, years later, no one has bought it and it has now become a retreat for their family and friends and will soon be their full time home.
We got there late Friday night and this is what I woke up to Saturday morning...
We did a little shopping in town...
We went into this local shop that has the most beautiful beachy home decor.
It was a fun weekend reconnecting with the girls who know me best.
And I also got to stop off in Solvang to visit my sis-in-law and nieces who have recently moved there (check out the super cute Inn where Angie works, The Hamlet Inn. )
Anyway, it was a beautiful weekend to get away. And now it is back to the daily grind.
Hope you all had a great weekend and were able to rest and relax (Honestly though, with little kids "rest" and "relax" just doesn't happen. Oh well.).
