Happy Friday, friends! This weekend we’re taking a trip to Half Moon Bay. I’ve never been, but have seen the stunning, sweeping views of the coast, and have heard rave reviews about places like Sam’s Chowder House and Pasta Moon. We’re staying at The Ritz which looks unbelievably beautiful – and apparently, there’s a smores fire pit. One of my favorite things to do is travel to places in driving distance to experience something new. Staycations are always a good idea, and very much needed. Matt recently spent a month (as he does each year) in ‘busy season’, where he works 12 hour days and on weekends so we’re celebrating the end of that and our future pup coming to us soon this summer! I mean, I can find a million excuses or reasons to celebrate if it ends with a road trip somewhere pretty. Let’s get real.

I posted this photo on Instagram yesterday – so thank you to those who sent over recommendations, I appreciate it! I started packing and thought I would share what I usually bring along with me on an overnight or weekend trip. I try and pack lightly and plan out outfits so I don’t spend too much time trying things on. I packed 1 dress, a pair of denim, 2 tops, a basic tee, 2 pairs of shoes (heel and flat), something to sleep in, and 1 jacket that can work with all outfits. I can’t wait to snap along the way and share HMB through my eyes. What are you up to this weekend?
