House Hunt

July 1, 2012
Friends, so much has been going on. So. much. 

First, we decided to take a trip down to Santa Barbara to look for houses. 

 We drove down with this little cutie. (And stopped at In-N-Out, naturally.)

And this cutie too. Plus the amazingly rad Anna. It took 9 hours, but really, the kids were great!

 We hung out with this clan. And the bucket bike. And celebrated a Master.

And cuddled.

Because he's a cutie-pa-tootie, according to big brother Landon.

 "Aunt Jessica, I want to take a picture of YOU!"

We fell in love even more with our new we just stood over Butterfly Beach and just stared out at the sea.

Which leads me to our major success - we found a house!

It's small and perfect and just what we wanted. 

How did this happen?

I'm not even sure.

These are just a couple pics I grabbed from the Craigslist ad, because when we were there I was too giddy to take pictures. It wasn't until we were in the car, with the keys, that I thought oh geez, I didn't take a single picture. So these will have to do for now. We're really lucky - we found a great place up on the lower Riviera that allows Numi and has - I can't believe it - sweeping ocean views. We are so thankful to have found this place!

So that's the update. We move down there on the 10th. It's so soon.



  1. I am so dazed but so excited! Just to look at the ocean with my wife... that's worth doing!

  2. your house looks beautiful! i would love to live near the ocean

  3. I am in LOVE with the house and the Central Coast too. So happy for you! Where is the house? In SB proper?

  4. Julia - thanks! We lived by the ocean for all of college and completely took it for granted. Second time around we are so, so thankful to be back seaside!

    Robin - Thanks Robin! It's in SB proper, about 5 minutes east of downtown in the lower riviera. We are so excited!

  5. It looks so beautiful! I can't wait to see more photos. Congrats Jess!!
