valentine's day in venice

Alan and I headed to Abbott Kinney in Venice on Valentine's Day
I had been home sick for a week and a half so everything looked beautiful to me!

We browsed through some awesome shops.

It was a sparkling Sunday and around 75 degrees. Why do I live in California?


Love messages were scattered throughout Venice for us to see!

This shop had great items indoors and out...

Found an artist that made these blown glass hearts!

I fell in love with this floral shop and decided it is a career that I must do someday...

The colors displayed throughout the shop were muted and arrangements full of whimsy

It was the perfect place to share with my lovebird on Valentine's Day

The only thing my husband and ever quarrel about is who gets the worm

(or bigger piece of chocolate)!

Santa Barbara has a subtle winter
You know it's winter by the variations of light

The cool mornings and nights are refreshing winter treats

Peaceful stretches of open unpopulated shore

And the way light dances on buildings are all winter in Santa Barbara.
