A Weekend in Monterey

On the one weekend Mr. Howard had off from work, I had an all-day training to attend at the Yolo Basin on Saturday. As bummed as we were, we tried to plan something really special for Sunday (to make up for it). As I've mentioned in previous blogs, we've been trying to see all sorts of new places in Northern California. We've already done little trips to Chico, San Francisco, and Tahoe. So, after searching for the perfect place to spend our Saturday, we settled on Monterey. We decided to spend the whole day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and quickly bought tickets for a special Behind the Scenes Tour. As the weekend got closer, we decided to fly by the seat of our pants, throw caution to the wind, and drive up to Monterey on Saturday night, giving us a whole extra evening there.

It turned into such a romantic, fun weekend trip and we couldn't have wished for a more perfect way to spend a Saturday and Sunday!

I am so lucky to not only be afforded the ability to do and see things that make me so happy, but also to have a husband who I adore and LOVE spending time with. What a lucky girl I am!!
