It’s not often that we are able to get away with just the two of us. We haven’t gone away together since our babymoon before Søren was born, so not too long ago we took our first quick trip away without the kids. We were only gone for one night and Nana came to visit for the night. On the way down it rained a bit but it seemed to clear up once we arrived. After checking in we grabbed a sunset dinner with friends then parted ways.

Where is your favorite place for a quick getaway?

  1. I have always wanted to stay at this hotel! It looks amazing! Quick getaways are usually to Big Sur, that is one of our special places.

  2. I haven’t ventured on the beach of Santa Cruz yet because we had Alfie with us and on the part where we went – it wasn’t dog friendly. Lameo.

  3. So gorgeous! I love the picture with the rainbow. It’s so important to have little getaways without the kiddos–my husband and I love taking short road trips to nearby places in SC, NC, and GA when we get a chance!

  4. I’d love to have a beach getaway with the one I love right now. In particular, I’d love to be on the Mackinac Island shore right now. I love that sound.

  5. I went to UCSC so Santa Cruz is another home away from home for me! I totally wanted to go back and stay at the dream inn too, but it was way too expensive during the summer months.

  6. Adorable photos of the two of you! I love that picture of the seagulls tracks crossing the footprints! Glad you had a lovely time.

  7. How nice of you to be able to get away together! Little trips like that are really important for relationships, no matter how far you go or how long/short the trip is 🙂

  8. I grew up in Monterey County and have a ton of family from Santa Cruz. I spent every summer there growing up and am actually going to visit family there soon! 🙂

  9. looks like such a great getaway with the huz. 🙂 such a pretty rainbow shot. i wonder how it’s gonna be when we have kids. i’m terrified that our lives are going to be so different.
