I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! We stayed home in Houston and spent our days at the pool and then had friends over for hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill while the kids played. It was a perfect low-key weekend, just what I needed to get everything ready to leave for California yesterday!
There is so much prep that goes into leave your kids behind for a few days. I was typing up schedules, stocking the kitchen, making sure they had some fun surprises on store so they won’t miss us for a minute. I have to admit, I think it was me who was more upset saying goodbye than they were. But this is our first trip just the two of us since we had Knox over two years ago. (We have been back to NYC together for a friend’s wedding and Charleston with other couples, but this is the first trip with no agenda and just some quality time together.)
We are in LA today for some quick morning meetings before hitting the road to head to Santa Barbara. Neither one of us have ever been to SB so we are so excited to explore, relax and eat! Let me know if you have any recommendations in the comments below!
