Last weekend, the hubby and I spent the weekend with some friends up in Carmel Valley. We rented a house via vrbo.com. The photos on the website did not do this house justice. And though I usually don’t go for ersatz architecture, the house was gorgeous.  The owners also own Carmel Winery and generously threw in two cases of wine.

It would be awesome if I could retire from life with views like this (though I pray I do not become a republican)…
