15 Valentines Days

It’s been a tradition since Dan and I have been dating to visit Solvang every year on Valentine’s Day. This year we celebrated our 15th one together! We decided this year to take our trailer out and stay at the beautiful Flying Flags RV resort for the first time. We started our adventure enjoying the resort, then we went over to the miniature horse ranch. I loved seeing all the cute little nuggets! I keep telling Dan that one day I will have my own “cute farm,” complete with mini horses, mini goats, mini pigs, and much more. After that we enjoyed the adorable Danish Village and ended the day with a yummy dinner and dip in the hot tub. Being in love with Dan these past 15 years has been such a joy. And wow, it went by so fast! We’ve had our fair share of ups and downs, but our journey together has been such an adventure and blessing. I am forever thankful for this incredible man I get to call my husband.


Valentine’s Day in Solvang












It has been a tradition for Dan and I to spend every Valentine’s Day in Solvang since we’ve met. This year was our 12th one we’ve shared together. We had the weekend off so we spent Friday in Santa Barbara then Saturday in Solvang. We thought it would be fun to take the Vespa this year so we loaded it in the back of our truck and took it with us. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect! It was sunny and warm with bright blue skies and just the perfect amount of wind. We started the day off eating at one of our favorite spots for lunch called The Greenhouse Cafe. Then we walked around the Danish Village, went shopping, and had fun taking pictures together. We always like to get the classic photo with the big wind mill in the background 🙂 We also thought it would be fun to dress up a little rather than just dressing up for dinner. Dan is wearing some tan slacks and a white button up shirt, both from Cotton On. His watch is from Forever 21, his shoes are thrifted, and his jacket is by Louis Raphael. He also has in his jacket pocket a handkerchief that I handmade him just for Valentine’s Day. The dress I am wearing is from Forever 21, the headband is made by Embers and Arrows, and my shoes are by Vince Camuto. After we walked around for awhile we hopped on the Vespa and cruised around town for awhile, then rode out to the Chumash Reservation 5 miles down the road. When it got dark we rode back over to Solvang to eat dinner at a restaurant we go to every year called Bit O’ Denmark Restaurant. It was such a beautiful weekend with my love and I’m so grateful that we have each other to share this life with.
