Whew. We are home from a wonderful trip to California, and I'm just going to take some time to figure out how to tell you about the journey (and also to get rid of the cold that I caught on the last day). We did a lot! One of the obvious highlights was our stay at the Madonna Inn, where I drank that lemon drop martini pictured above. Our gift certificate to the inn, a wedding gift from Shannon and Chris, instigated the trip south. It didn't disappoint.
