From a very young age I loved home tours, architecture, and art. When I was in third grade my family went to Hearst Castle in San Simeon and I still remember the impact it had on my nine year old self. I am convinced it was this trip that I really fell in love with art history and pursued it as a minor in college. I must have been alive in a different era because whenever I walk into a great estate like Hearst Castle I feel like I am home.

I have been saying for years to Jesse that I want to go back home to Hearst Castle and we finally are able to go this fall! I cannot wait!! I am so excited! I am going to dress up and have a ball. Maybe I will wear my wedding dress!!

Like I mentioned before, you don't need to travel far to feel like you have really gotten away. Here are some of the places I love and some of the places that are on my list.
