road trip

our trip up to paso robles was mostly just spent driving.

good thing it's probably one of the most gorgeous drives in the world.

on the way up, i kept trying to take pictures of everything, and i spent a lot of time reading a magazine. i didn't take the time to just sit and absorb all the beauty around me. i was too distracted.

so, on the way home, i decided i would just look out the window and enjoy it all. i found myself thinking about a lot of random things. those thoughts were distracting too. so i tried to make myself think about nothing except for the things surrounding me.

i sat quietly and just took it all in. it was perfect. so serene and relaxing.

here are some of the instagram pictures i took on the way up and when we stopped in santa barbara:

  1. That picture of the tunnel is amazing. These sunny California pictures make me long for the sun to come back.

  2. Love the photos!!! And now I'm going to be needing a cupcake and a nice little drive to somewhere pretty.

  3. one of the most gorgeous places in all of cali is santa barbara. i went to school there and met my husband there!

  4. original pringles... the smart roadtrippers choice :) love them!

  5. I love road trips where I get to drive through tunnels. Seriously! They remind me of living in Pittsburgh.

  6. Looks like a beautiful day! I love the pictures!

  7. I love the picture of the tunnel. did you beep your horn while driving through? i always try to do that--its so fun!

  8. Fun pictures! I like the one of you dipping chips into salsa the best. It's just a really cute arrangement of objects in the photo. :)
