LEGACY GALLERY WALL FOR UNDER $350

LEGACY GALLERY WALL FOR UNDER $350

Fast forward 3 years, and it’s not just wedding photos I hadn’t printed, but beautiful maternity & newborn photos from Lauren J Photography too.  I was also out of excuses.  We had moved into our house, and I had plenty of blank walls to fill.  I set out to create a gallery wall to display these legacy moments in our family’s story without spending a small fortune.

A Weekend of Wine Tasting in Los Alamos

A Weekend of Wine Tasting in Los Alamos

The weekend before Valentine’s Day we took a last minute trip up to Los Alamos for some rest & relaxation, to eat delicious food, taste wine & to spend a few days living life at a slower pace.  Sleepy little Los Alamos delivered in spades!  A former stagecoach stop just an hour northwest of Santa Barbara and a few hundred feet off the 101, Los Alamos is about as unassuming as it gets.  The main street spans just 9 blocks, so you can easily park your car when you arrive and leave it untouched for the rest of the weekend.  Nevertheless, the editors at Conde Nast caught wind of this diamond in the rough and recently named it California’s next great food & wine destination. Intrigued by the promise of a yet to be discovered foodie destination, hit or miss cell reception and a weekend’s worth of wine tasting all within walking distance, we packed our bags and said a prayer for patience on the 101.
