Over the weekend I spent some quality sister time with Gillian for her birthday. I booked us a stay at Becca B&B in Bolinas, a gorgeous little sister-run bed and breakfast in a quirky sea-side town. We couldn’t have been happier with our little home-away-from-home for the weekend. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced, the location was just perfect (a five minute walk to the beach), and the claw-foot bathtub was as beautiful in-person as it looked online.
Kate and Becca run a truly beautiful bed and breakfast in their 1890s farmhouse. Upon entering the room, Gillian and I didn’t want to touch a thing. The decorations were so beautiful and unassuming: a simply gorgeous rug, simple picture in frame, nice dresser drawers, etc. They even supplied beach towels and bathrobes. The best part of our stay, though, was our morning breakfast in bed.
After kicking off our shoes and kicking up some dust on the dance floor in the old saloon down the street, waking up to homemade breakfast and fresh coffee the next morning was truly a treat. Oh my goodness, and the breakfast presentation at Becca B&B was so impressive! Gillian and I almost let our breakfasts and coffee go cold, we took so many photos.
This weekend of relaxing, singing, dancing, and laughing with my little sister in such a beautiful setting will go down in the books as one of my favorite all-time memories. Gillian’s uniquely fulfilling company, the relaxing stay at Becca B&B, and the beautiful California weather made for the most perfect weekend I have had in a long time.
I had a quick day to unpack, do laundry, rest up a bit, and pack right back up again. I’m heading to Boston tonight on a red-eye to visit my red-headed BFF and then catching another red-eye to Nice, France for a whirlwind Europe trip with my boyfriend. Follow me along on Twitter and Instagram where I’ll be sharing my adventures.
