It was a short trip but good times were definitely had. I'm already dreaming of when I can go back...
I thought I'd share a few snap shots from my trip. From boutique shopping in Montecito, to wine tasting in Santa Barbara to playing golf in LA, I think we covered it all!
We started our trip by heading up to Montecito for some shopping and a delightful lunch at the Montecito Cafe. After lunch, we went a hop, skip and a jump to Santa Barbara. In Santa Barbara, we stayed at a quaint bed and breakfast called The Upham. It was so cute and reminded me of the south! For dinner, we hit State Street (the main drag) for pre-dinner cocktails at The Marquee, followed by dinner at Carlito's.

|Our dessert at Carlito's. A trio of sorbets. Delish!|
On Sunday, we had brunch on State Street at Tupelo Junction Cafe and then took a nice stroll to the Santa Barbara Pier. That afternoon, some wine tasting was in order!
|A creative spin on pan handling!|
|We did the Urban Wine Trail, which was so cool!|
There are multiple wineries within walking distance.

Look at that view behind me! Those are mountains in the distance.
