it’s become a special tradition for reis and me to spend our anniversary in santa barbara and this year we added ojai into the mix! we stayed at ojai rancho inn for a night and looveed it. free bikes, cute (and cheap) rooms, yes please. we stopped into shop summer camp on our way out and talked to the sweet owner rachel for a good 45 minutes and learned all about how their adorable shop came to be. we headed up to santa barbara and spent the afternoon wandering around the courthouse sunken gardens and eating real good food at our old fave eateries (that town has the best mexican food). in the several years we lived there, neither of us had ever been up to the bell tower at the courthouse so we made our way up there and it was beautiful! highly recommend seeing the city from that view. oh santa barbara, we love you!
and what. i still can’t believe we’ve been married two years!! best two years ever. time FLIES.
