carmel by the sea

on our little san francisco trip, 
we were able to do the beautiful 17 mile drive. 
ralph and i had done it the past summer, and it was just as gorgeous! 

we spent most of our time in carmel by the sea, 
which is my favorite part of the drive.

the boys played golf at the peter hay's golf course, 
right next to pebble beach, while me and jen shopped!

the whole time, jen and i couldn't stop talking about how 
people live in this little town. such a dream.

^ ralph in his personal heaven ^

 ^ i was loving all the charming halloween decorations around the town! ^

^ father of the bride, anyone? ^

^ ralph and i had la bicyclette last summer for breakfast, and absolutely loved it.
this time we went for lunch, and was not disappointed! ^

^ the lone cypruss ^

so bright, and sunny. 
soaking it up before we head back to 50 degree weather back home!
