My Favorite California Weekend Trip:
Oh, it’s too hard to choose!
I love heading out to Palm Springs, up to Ojai, or staying at the Madonna Inn and going wine tasting in Paso Robles!
I loved my girls’ getaway to Los Alamos!
Basically, I like returning to the same places on little weekend trips and revisiting the places that I love!
