Friday Fancies : Road Trippin'

The last road trip we took was B.C. {before children} and it still remains one of my all-time favorite vacations.
My husband and I were a year or so into our relationship and he was itching to take me to California. He had been once before and never quite got it out of his system.
We flew to Los Angeles, rented a car and drove. And then we drove some more.
All the way up highway 1 to San Francisco and then back down to San Diego. Through the desert into Las Vegas {my favorite part} and then on to Arizona. 
I remember wearing a little floral dress. And jumping out of the car to snap a pic in front of every "welcome to..." sign we encountered.

I would love to go back to that time just for a day. 
Except wearing these boots. And carrying this bag.

  14. Dearest Susan,

    Just a day would not quite cover that lovely road trip.
    Highway 1 we often drove to work, for the Campbell's Soup plant in Pescadero on the way to Santa Cruz where we stayed at the Dream Inn. Great memories too.
    Hugs to you,
    Mariette
