A Weeklong Road Trip Up the California Coast

As promised, I have gotten the blog up from our trip last week! We had an awesome week in California together at the end of June and loved every second of it. Daniel and I flew into San Diego and road tripped up the coast to finish the week in San Jose for a wedding of two of our super close family friends. And to make it a little extra special, we splurged and got ourselves a convertible for the drive! I think that was both of our favorite parts! And I took wayyyy too many photos along the way, so I’m sorry in advance for the overload that’s coming y’all.

In each location, we made the best of it! Here’s a little summary of our itinerary for the week 🙂
