Hey ya’ll! Meet West Coast Mama-To-Be, Laura! I was so excited when she announced that she and her handsome hubby are expecting a sweet baby girl just a few weeks after baby Gray is scheduled to arrive! Ya’ll have got to check out her blog Happily Ever Parker and check out the pics of her first love, Finn…he’s famous! 
Hello Newlywed Northerners! I am Laura and I blog over at Happily Ever Parker! It’s been awesome having a blog buddy in Stephanie because we are just a month a part in our pregnancies. So when she asked me to guest post while she is gallivanting in Greece I was more than happy to oblige. Now I sure do wish I was babymooning in Greece – or anywhere for that matter! We will more than likely be staying local as we are hoping to buy a house this year. So here are some awesome places in my beautiful state of California we can get to by car!
San Francisco – a gorgeous place that I am lucky enough to call my work home. And for that reason this location is off the menu!
Mendocino – a tried and true favorite of ours. I never mind the drive up the coast and its beauty is never lacking!
Monterey – another one of our absolute favorite places. We have shared many a special moment here, getting engaged is one of them!
Lake Tahoe – we love visiting friends here and it’s an awesome location come winter or summer!
So many amazing places you can go and that is just naming a small handful of locations in Northern California! Notice my theme is water – I am always a happy girl when around it!
I am hoping we can make it to a location that we have yet to go to. Shamefully as a California resident I have never been to Yosemite! However we always travel with our pup, Finn, and not a lot of places in Yosemite allow dogs.
Either way since I can’t be in Greece crashing Stephanie’s babymoon I won’t be too picky. And if I really had my choice?
It would be Maui!
Thanks for having me Steph and have a wonderful time!!
