I’m happy to say my Valentine’s weekend was all that I expected. Sweet little hotel rooms (above). Long lazy naps. Pink satin and pearls. The best carne asada E.V.E.R. Winter showers. New shoes. And lots of love (and chocolate).
Santa Barbara really is fantastic. I think I could live there - in a cozy nook right off the beach and not too far from State Street with all its ice cream shops and movie theatres, perfect for hand holding and late night strolling.
Even the rain couldn't keep us indoors. Umbrellas in hand, we walked to Andersen's for a breakfast straight out of a dream and happened to stumble upon our VERY favorite new salsa: California Pepper Sauce, made right there in Santa Barbara.
I advise you to log on and order some for yourself the first chance you get. Or, if you aren't a fan of peppery things, I advise you to order some for me. Either one will work.
