{ Week } In Photos

Hi readers and happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and were able to take advantage of the warm weather we've been having.

Over the weekend the Hubby and I drove up to Fort Bragg for a quiet getaway. We stayed in a quaint B&B called The Weller House Inn. Our room was bright and sunny and had a beautiful view of the front garden.

The following day we visited the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. There were over 47 acres of beautiful plants and flowers in different stages of bloom. My favorites were the Rhododendrons that came in every shade of pink, red and white.

The gardens extended out to the cliffs. It was approximately half a mile to get to the coast and the view did not disappoint. There were hills covered with grass and different types of flowers that were peppered throughout and even on the side of the cliffs.

Later that day, we drove 15 minutes south to Mendocino Village to take a walk around the headlands and to visit my favorite jam shop to restock my supplies. The water was clear and in beautiful shades of blue, which has inspired me for future redecorating plans.

After dinner, we took a short walk to Glass Beach, which was near our inn. We didn't see glass, but the coastline was spectacular. This look sums up my weekend wear: denim and a tee.

We waited for a while to watch the sunset on Glass Beach. The wind started to pick up which made it too chilly to stay, so we ended up watching the full sunset on the water-tower-turned-observation-deck at the inn.

On our drive back home, we decided to stop halfway in Healdsburg for lunch and a sweet treat. We happened upon a bakery called Moustache Baked Goods. This dainty cupcake is called The Mistress (meyer lemon cupcake with raspberry filling and raspberry buttercream icing). It was the sweet ending to a perfect weekend.
