"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

I got to escape! The house! The kids! Volunteering at school! Callings! All of it! Plus I got to do it in one of the best ways possible: a 4 day getaway with two of my best friends, Kalie Chamberlain and Erin Pulley. It was a Finer Things Club on vacation!

It is incredible the things you can do when you are not planning and caring for children. It was like our time doubled! We explored Los Gatos (where we stayed, graciously hosted by Erin's in-laws the Pulleys), rode rides on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, took the 17-mile drive around Pebble Beach, stopped by Carmel, collected shells, rode a bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, ate our weight in treats from Icing On The Cake, hit up China Town, rode a Cable Car, saw Sea Lions on Pier 39, visited Ghiradelli for salted caramel hot cocoa, had the wildest taxi ride and elevator experience of all time, visited the Oakland Temple grounds, ran 5 miles through lush trails, and laughed until we cried. 

Best. Finer Things Club. Ever.
