Last week Ryan and I flew down for a very long weekend in Southern California with his parents. His mom was retiring after 29 years as an attorney (woohoo!), so we went to support her and do a few wedding things – dress shopping and wedding rings. Plus a stop at Sprinkles for ice cream (had to), Laguna Beach for tattoos and beach gazing, and shopping at my favorite boutique in Newport Beach.
It was the perfect time to get away from the hectic-ness of the city and enjoy the sunshine. We were able to do a perfect mix of lounging, exploring, dining, celebrating and getting things done. Plus I made some key wedding decisions and felt extra inspired to paint when I got back. I’d call that a successful trip.
