Last summer, to celebrate our first wedding anniversary among many other wonderful things to come, we made the roughly 2-hour drive down to Paso Robles, California. Unfortunately for us, Route 1 along the coast south of Big Sur still wasn't reopened - but the good news for you, should you make a similar trek, is that … Continue reading an anniversary & an engagement : paso robles [ 38 ]
So, we have a tiny little airport in Monterey that has regular or semi-regular flights to San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver, and soon-to-be DFW. We were looking for a short getaway for Memorial Day weekend, and the MRY-LAS options have a Friday flight and a Monday flight. SCORE! So that … Continue reading vegas, again: hoover dam & a weekend getaway

It's one of her favorite places to visit, and I'd never been before, so it seemed like the perfect destination for a girls' weekend. We went during Presidents' Day weekend, from Thursday until … Continue reading VEGAS BABY #slaycation2018 – girls weekend in Las Vegas
