Daphne and I needed a quick girls getaway for the weekend, so we headed up the coast to Santa Barbara! We stopped at Summerland on the way in hopes of finding Jesse McCartney, but were unsuccessful. Maybe next time! We stayed at a cute Air B n’ B right off of State Street, and headed to the Christmas parade for the night. The parade had more than 90 floats! After the Christmas parade, we grabbed dinner. It was absolutely freezing, and truly felt like Christmas time. We spent the next day riding a tandem bike (certainly harder than you’d think, by the way…), losing phones, recovering phones, and losing phones again. We managed to fit in a quick visit to Mission Santa Barbara, which was gorgeous. We headed to the pier for the most expensive ice cream I’ve ever had (you live and you learn!) and soaked up the sunshine. Sometimes all you need is a quick trip with your best friend to make everything right again!
