A Weekend Away

I spent a long weekend in La Jolla. It was absolutely wonderful.

La Jolla

Everything was in bloom. Just as it was 15 years ago when I married Mr. D├ęcor.

La Jolla

We enjoyed walks on the beach, quaint little shops, delicious dining and fantastic ambience in general.

La Jolla is beautiful and this event stunning!

After several hectic weeks it was so nice to unwind with the seahorses.

I spent most of the weekend walking around in the Lakitia sandal with gold glitter. A sparkling good deal at Target ~ $16.99. 

Did you do anything fun?

Sounds like a perfectly relaxing weekend! I love the sandals and a good price as well. =) We are beaching it for spring break in a couple of weeks. I am definitely seeing a trip to target in my future!

I hope you are feeling refreshed and rested.
Happy Monday!

I love La Jolla...we used to go there often when we lived in Scottsdale. I miss living out West!

We just went down to the lake and rested.

How nice that you got away! Your pictures are just beautiful and I love your sandals.

We visited La Jolla once when my sons were living in San Diego. What a shopping paradise and we enjoyed the restaurants and gorgeous scenery. I'd love to go back!

I'm so glad you got away! I hope the weather was better there, than it was here. I hope you'll have some time soon to get together again, I miss you.

Hugs, N'Love,

Glad you could get away and enjoy the sand underfoot.
We had a nice, low-key weekend - spent quite a lot of time in the garden. The sunny weather helped.

How romantic and fun Laura & so rightly deserved. What a fabulous place to be married. We speak often about the day when we can live in San Diego again. It is truly irreplaceable.

I miss those warm breezes!!

Cindy said...

We went to a 90th birthday party. We've had a rough few weeks, but that was a nice break.

Looks like you had a lovely time, Laura.

Gorgeous place! never been there but looking at the photos, probably was magical! Spent my weekend in Chiacgo with old friends and family - simply fun company. :-)

Learned something new about you Laura! I honeymooned in La Jolla coming up on 23 years ago in May. Stayed in an adorable Bed & Breakfast. So glad you had time away to celebrate. Happy Anniversary!

openid said...

What a well deserved and wonderful break from your daily duties and beautiful spot to celebrate your anniversary. I've never been to La Jolla but will add it to my list of places to visit. Funny, Thomas took Friday and Monday off, so we had a long weekend together too!
Your Friend,

wow! Bliss...
Looks like a beautiful place and time; glad you were able to kick back and breathe a bit.
We had a 16th birthday this weekend...I'm still trying to get the knots out of my brain from that! :)
and it's TUESDAY already!

Maria Elena said...

Laura, you are so lucky! It sounds like the perfect weekend! Wet to La Jolla many, many years ago and it sure is a beautiful place. By the way, I am hosting a new Link party today on my blog. I am very excited and scared at the same time. LOL
Please, stop by if you get a chance. I need all the support I can get!:) Enjoy your week!


Oh my gosh! Your photos of La Jolla take my breath away - I know you loved it! Just give me some beautiful water and sand between my toes and I'm in heaven. Glad you could go and unwind. I have to admit, I really have not heard of La Jolla (I have been sheltered) :) Where is it??

How lovely that you were able to take a break and get away....and what better than La Jolla! Your photos are amazing and I felt like I was there. Enjoy your Spring Break.

What a marvelous place to spend time. You took some amazing photos that would be nice to print and have framed. Love the cute shoes. We wear sandals here in Florida just about year round. I'll look for these! Hugs!

It looks so relaxing! I only wish I had done something fun. I spent the weekend putting up beadboard in my kitchen. Fun for others maybe, but I just wanted it done. Ugh.

Somewhere out there is a long weekend with my name written all over it.
