Santa Barbara Magic

Spent a magical weekend in Santa Barbara celebrating our dear friends, Johnny and Lauren, tie the knot! I knew when we arrived Friday night at the Yacht club beach party we were in for a memorable weekend. Barefoot in the sand with a band singing only Jimmy Buffet set the mood for the relaxing and fun times to come. Our boutique hotel was adorable and walking 5 minutes to the beach and into the town shops wasn't too bad either - nor was the late afternoon pool dip. The wedding itself, held on a private beach, was more than I even expected with a gorgeous sunset and maybe the best dance party I've seen at the end of the night - closing out to "Forever Young" and every person there yelling/singing from the top of lungs. Just as it should be.

Summer Wine

Birthday shenanigans were off the chart this year - possibly my best bday party to date. It helps when your birthday (July 1st to be exact) falls on a Friday....short day at work, (presents!) and dinner date with my main squeeze that night....continued celebrations into Saturday - day drinking and listening to bands at Malibu Wines with my whole gang. Not to forget the 4th of July to follow, with a perfect 'rest day' on the 3rd to re-cooperate. The stars aligned that day at Malibu Wines...when a friend mentioned they had an entire lake house to themselves just 2 miles down the road, and that everyone at my 'party' was welcome! The after party ended up lasting pretty much through the 4th of July and the lake house felt like home by the time we all finally left. 

MALIBU WINES & Lake Malibou

4th of July at Lake Malibou.....(yes it's spelled that way), Free People, dinner and stuff....
