central coast

over the holiday Jordan and I decided while we were in California we were going to take a weekend trip up the coast to Santa Barbara. The drives is INSANELY beautiful. One of my besties {Alyssa} grew up there and so she and her husband Brady {see below} met us downtown after our drive up. 
We strolled down main street picked up a starbucks 
{which always reminds me of London when Im with Lyss because we order hazelnut hot coco}
then headed to the pier 
presh.
i guess the needy can't be bothered to actually sit in one place so they just set up shop and ask you to leave some $.  There are little camps lining the pier.
i love the sea
my husband ladies and gentleman.
 always makes it easy to get a good picture, this one comes complete with helmet hair a la road-trip
sisters pretty much.
surprisingly a lot of people ask us if we are sisters
oh hey giant pelican 
scary whale
nice whale
I miss LONDON
not quiet as good as shake shack but still dang good. also its close the beach so the habit wins.
we asked about 4 different people to take our picure, every single one came out like this
finally I propped the camera up and set up the trusty self timer.
{note brady trying to hold jordan's hand here... they love each other}
finally a decent one
in all his glory
We stayed in the most adorable Inn & Spa. It was in little really neat danish (swedish... something like that) town called Solvang. You sorta feel like you are in a foreign country for a minute when you get there. 
this place had the best chocolate
in my pjs hangin by a giant shoe. a good one I think.

can't wait to take another trip.

I love Santa Barbara. Ryan and I drove up the PCH from Santa Monica to San Francisco while we lived there. The drive is truly breath taking! Gorgeous gorgeous photos! I especially am loving the last one of you and the shoe. :)

You and Lyss do look a LOT alike in that picture! Nonetheless, I've always thought the both of you to be absolutely stunning! Miss you.
