This month marks three years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. And while I didn’t have a party to commemorate the occasion, I did spend a few days in Santa Barbara. Yay! Getting away was such a big deal for us. Since the diagnosis we haven’t been on a vacation, a weekend getaway or so much as a sleepover–anywhere–unless you count the hospital stays.
Santa Barbara was the perfect place to dip my toes back into the travel pool; it’s beautiful, laid back and charming. For those who may not know, Santa Barbara is located between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific ocean–the best of both worlds. With its beautiful red tile roofs and perfect climate it’s been nicknamed “The American Riviera.” It’s the perfect place to pamper yourself or your relationship. Here’s a few pics. I’ll be back to share more from my trip!
This is the Santa Barbara courthouse. The architecture is beautiful.
