This morning, Jeff and I woke up in gorgeous Point Reyes Station, California, where we'll be spending a long weekend with my family. I grew up in Marin County, the sprawling Northern suburbs of San Francisco, in a small town close to the city with plenty going on. Point Reyes is another world, despite being only 45 minutes from my hometown. With a population of a few hundred, this coastal hamlet is known for fresh and organic foods, amazing hiking trails, and some of the most beautiful and breathtaking ocean I've ever seen. I grew up coming here to visit the sea lions, play in the waves, and explore, learning about the native plants and animals.
My dad and step mom have come in from New York City, and my step siblings, their significant others, and my niece and nephew are here from their nearby homes for a staycation. Jeff and I have a few wedding things planned (our tastings mostly, which I'm already hungry for!), but will otherwise be picking up the slow pace of the locals and relaxing for a few days before the busy spring sets in.
Have a lovely weekend!
