Santa Barbara

I grew up in Ventura County, so Santa Barbara has always been a hop, skip and a jump away. My sister has been living there for a few years now, and whenever I visit, it boggles my mind why I don’t go there more often. This was my last trip there.

Just like the perfect host she is, she took me to one of her favorite spots for breakfast/lunch before she had to go to work.

I love walking on State St, especially on such a beautiful day.
