i'm in love with mendocino


...MENDOCINO...
it's not hard to see how
i fell in love. this town is a dream.
a tiny, charming, pretty dream on the edge
of the ocean. how has it been kept a secret?


after we wandered around the town
with heart eyes the entire time, we
drove a few minutes down the coastal
road to little river inn restaurant. i already
thought i had maxed out on darling places
for the day, but no -- this place just added
to stealing my heart. we are for sure 
coming back to stay here, but this time
we enjoyed a sunset dinner looking out
over the ocean at the greatest little inn
restaurant to end our weekend getaway.
it was a dream!
pesto crusted salmon & bacon guacamole burger for chase and i
calimari caesar for mckelle, and the steak diane for david.
we had the best weekend with these cuties 
and we're so glad they joined us. also..
EVERYONE thinks chase + david are twins,
do you see it? we think they are identical 
from behind because of their twinner hair!
^ wait, cannot forget the warm olallieberry cobbler.
hopefully you remember me talking about olallieberry
lots in the past, it's a bay area special hybrid fruit and
we're a little bit obsessed with it. {see proof here
and here and here}. it was the best ever, and the
bread pudding was a must because chase LOVES it.
wow i love places like this, food like this,
weekends like this, & friends like this!

here's to a great place to spend a golden summer night.
xo

riding the skunk train, some good eats, and
horseback riding on the beach. quite the weekend!
