Happy Little Things

We spent this past weekend in LA + Santa Barbara.  LA for a night, and Santa Barbara (rather accidentally, for two nights – Stefan got very bad food poisoning, so we moved our flight from Sunday to Monday.)  This is in my opinion, the definition of the perfect weekend.  S’s mother lives in Santa Barbara for part of the year, and to me, nothing is better than her back yard.  It’s like a little miniature jungle back there – with sweeping views of the mountains.  Any ounce of stress immediately melts away when you get there.  We also managed to pay visit to the San Ysidro Ranch – one of my all time favorite places in the world.  (And their chocolate souffle?  Exquisite.)
