Vacation Recap

This past weekend was an amazing time of family, rejuvenation and fun!  Oh, and also a really great hotel (: We were not expecting the hotel to be so nice, so we were pleasantly surprised!  


These floor to ceiling plantation shutters are the perfect way to elongate the room and really highlight the tall ceilings. The pale yellow on the walls was a great buttery color to warm up the space.


Curtains:


The bathroom was huge! I was so excited to take a bubble bath in this spa tub:


Here's the lobby:



The view:

Huntington Beach:


While we were there, we went to Disneyland:
{my grandma, my aunt, my mom and me}
There's nothing like walking down main street, smelling all the goodies and anticipating the rides.
Do you notice the colors here? Purple and yellow- complimentary! Disneyland is so smart.

So, that was our trip! Today I'm heading back to Seattle to finish out my quarter. Time with family has totally given me the energy to keep going.  

Happy Tuesday!

Love and Family,

  1. Beautiful hotel! So glad you were able to enjoy some time with family and get rejuvenated :)

    I agree about the smell/anticipation @ Disney! I live right up the road from Disney World so I totally get it!

    Purple and yellow were my school colors! To think how smart our school founders were... ;)
