Before we jet off to Los Angeles for the weekend, I wanted to share a weekend we took a few weeks ago to Big Sur in the Santa Cruz mountains. My sister Jasmine arranged a little weekend getaway and rented a house up in the mountains and just a stone's throw away from the ocean. We stayed in what was called the "Dragon House," an eclectic 4 story cabin built right into the mountain. Complete with an outdoor bathroom, lily pond, lover's suite, yoga balcony, views of the ocean and hiking trails jutting out to other hidden treasures. Our friends Joe, Jer, James and their pup Jake also joined us. It was peaceful (except when Chris and I found a snake in the shower) and sunny and warm and it was nice getting away with the gang for a bit. I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful part of the world where mountains and oceans and sunny blue skies are so accessible. I think we're in for many more excursions to this part of Northern California!
