{summer essentials: places to go}

It’s finals weeks for husband, which means that summer officially starts for him {and unofficially starts for me} next week. I have a list of lots of these to do, and on that list are a few mini-vacations for us.

Places to See

1. Los Olivos is one of our very favorite places to go. We went on our honeymoon, and we went on our first anniversary last year, so it’s only natural that we’ll go again next month. That picture above is from one of our very favorite wineries, and I’m excited to go tasting soon! My best friend and I are actually going on Saturday to pick up a wine shipment for a different winery that we’re members of, but I might need to sneak into town to buy a few more bottles.

2. We visited the Getty Villa last year, but I’d really love to go back, especially when it’s beautiful outside. It’s such an amazing museum, and the location, right on the beach, just can’t be beat!

3. What would summer be without a trip to Disneyland? Well, that’s my thought process anyway. I live in Southern California, and basically grew up at the happiest place on earth. I think I’ll be able to make it happen within the next few months!

4. Believe it or not, that picture was taken only a few minutes from my apartment. But what might be even more unbelievable is that husband and I rarely go to the beach. So, this summer, I’d really like to spend an entire day there, in a bathing suit. That’s pretty much unheard of coming from me…

What do you want to see

I would love to go to any of those four! We just got back from a five-day vacation in Manhattan, which was just amazing. We're heading to the Outer Banks and Decatur, GA in August, which I am also looking forward to!
