More Reasons to Love Santa Barbara

CC gets her first pedicure.
To celebrate our anniversary, Ian and I decided we'd make a weekend of it in Santa Barbara -- our go-to spot for SoCal relaxation.

We love going to Santa Barbara...something you might have already gathered from how often I've posted about it on this blog.

While we have our favorite things to do (walking up and down State Street, for one), we also love discovering new things. And, of course, relaxing. (Yes, I've said that once already.)

This time, relaxing involved a mother-daughter mani-pedi session -- which was all Ian's idea! While I opted for the mani and the pedi, CC enjoyed her first pedicure, and her feet look so cute. The polka dots on top of the purple polish were genius. (Thank you, pedicure woman!)

After that, we all headed to a quaint little French restaurant, tucked into small arcade, called Petit Valentien. While it might have been difficult to keep a 5-year-old entertained while out and about, we didn't have to worry about that for long.

Our little one fell asleep shortly after the salad course, leaving us able to enjoy a lovely, romantic dinner on our own, with our little angel snoozing quietly close by.
