oh babymoon…



Last weekend, we spent a few days in Santa Barbara for a little babymoon and early 5 year anniversary getaway. The weekend was amazing, relaxing, and just what we needed to spend some time together before getting ready to welcome our little lady next month. The best part was that unlike my usual vacations, I made no plans of what we'd do, where we'd eat, and every day we just decided on the spot! It was a welcome change from my usual mindset. I loved lounging by the pool at Bacara, floating in the pool {weightlessness at last!}, popping into town to stop by the Farmer's Market and La Super-Rica, getting room service when we just didn't feel like sitting at a table, eating cookies in bed, and just hanging with my husband in the peace and quiet… — Joy

  1. that looks and sounds just perfect – think I have to suggest a babymoon for my husband and me too – a good way to wait for the baby to come (next month for me too)

  2. I recognized that pool view! My husband and I (though we live in Santa Barbara already) threw all of our vacation money into a stay at the Bacara for our honeymoon- rather than traveling elsewhere. Totally worth it. We were treated like rock stars (bet you were, too!) and enjoyed such a mellow and blissful stay. Only thing to remember when staying at a place like this… keep a good stash of tip money for all the Bacara crew who jump out of the woodwork to assist you with anything and everything. So happy to know you had a lovely time.
