Bidding Farewell to Summer


This summer has been a wonderful one.  Full of so many adventures.  Looking through pictures, I can’t believe how much we packed into it.

In some ways, summer feels long over, given the fact that one of my kids has been back at school for weeks.  But I’m excited to have one more glorious summer weekend.  We’ll be traveling to Santa Barbara for the first time ever.  Have you been?  What would you recommend doing?  Eating?  Etc. . . .

I’m looking forward to getting to know a new part of California and just having a relaxing time before we get shot out of the cannon that is September.  I hope you have a beautiful weekend!  What are you up to?


  • Happy last hurrah of summer, Ali! I adore Santa Barbara. It’s so picturesque and lovely, though I unfortunately haven’t been in years. I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. I’ll be staying close to home over this long weekend and hopefully oodles of sleeping in and reading will be taking place.

    • Ooh, enjoy your divine-sounding weekend, Vanessa! I’m so excited to explore Santa Barbara! I’m already loving it. . . .
