a look back.....January

I have missed posting so many family happenings in the last few months. It's time for me to catch up. First up our visit to see Danielle and Tom in their new home in Santa Barbara. They are loving it there after being in Washington DC for several years. They are both California kids and after dealing with a few "snowcations" they are so are glad to be back home. We couldn't wait to visit them in their new place. Some highlights from our trip.

Our first stop was in Ventura at the Seward Village. They have the most delicious fish tacos.

We were lucky to find a great deal on a VRBO for 110 dollars a night. We had a deck off our room overlooking the ocean with this gorgeous view!

After checking in we went over to see Danielle and Tom's place. They are just a couple of blocks from the beach and have a cozy little home with wood floors and lots of charm.

Love these pics of them on the mantle of their house.
After touring their home they took us to a Mexican restaurant close to their home.

The next day they took us on a tour of the local wineries and vineyards.

Wine tasting, beautiful scenery, Chocolate Merlot sauce dipped in sweets made for a perfect day!

After all the decadence of the day, they took us to eat at Jane's, a favorite place of theirs in town.
The next morning we ate at Crush Cafe a favorite breakfast spot in Santa Barbara.

We grabbed a few delicious cupcakes for the trip home and were so happy knowing we could come back for a visit anytime now that they are only a few hours away!
