Getting Away and Where To Go

[This beautiful print is by Nidhi Chanani. I love everything in Nidhi Chanani's Etsy shop!! Please check out her work here, and you can buy this print now for 15% off for the holidays! I think it would make a great present to anyone appreciative of illustration and cuddling. I'm still trying to decide which one I want for our apartment.]

Sorry. I've been delinquent, I see that my last post was on Sunday. It is finals week, and the mean scary monsters called stress and anxiety overtook my body and made me do some scary things, like eat In N' Out multiple times, leave coffee cups all over my desk, and wallow on the couch with my favorite procrastinating question--what am I doing with my life and am I fulfilled? Let me sit here and ponder that for three hours while I watch episodes of Gilmore Girls I've already seen and eat out of this bag of Craisins.

While I've been unproductive, it occurred to me that our 6 month wedding anniversary and our engage-a-versary fall on the same day--January 3rd! To get me out of my funk, I've declared that we celebrate, with possibly a weekend retreat where we don't sit on the couch and wallow because I am so done with that. 

I just don't know where to go or what to do. 

Where do you go to regain strength and find clarity? Any suggestions for a weekend getaway in Southern California?

For weekend getaways, I stick to 3 hours or less travel time. Since you're in San Diego, I'd recommend Temecula if you like wine (our fave winery is Ponte and we've found great deals to stay at the South Coast Winery). You might consider a Beach town getaway like Laguna and you could stay at the Pacific Edge Hotel http://www.jdvhotels.com/hotels/orangecounty/pacific_edge. And of course there's always Palm Springs and the Ace Hotel...

Ohmygolly. You sound just like me during finals. I can totally end up zoning out and watching tv while consuming massive amounts of dried fruits (especially Craisins). Are you all finished now? I have a little grading left, but I'm nearly there!

As for where to go, I sadly don't know this area well. Maybe north? I think it depends whether you want to relax and be pampered or relax and be camping...

@A Los Angeles Love: Great ideas, thank you so much! I have never been to Palm Springs and we are now considering going. :)

@Brandi: Dried fruits rock my world. I am NOW all finished, at the time of this post, I was procrastinating...with craisins.

@honey my heart: I would love to go to SB (we went for spring break a few years ago and it was lovely,) but unfortunately it is too far away. :(
One day!
