This was one huge, crazy, long, fun weekend that was all about celebrating Matthew’s big birthday! On Friday morning I surprised Matthew by telling him to pack him bags for a mini getaway. We drove up to Cambria, stopping in Santa Barbara for lunch, Los Olivos for cupcakes and Cayucos for cookies and thrift shopping. It was so nice to get away for a few days and explore these awesome areas. To say we ate a lot this weekend would be a big understatement!
Welcome to M Loves M! My name is Mara and I created this lifestyle site in 2009 as a place to share my love of fashion, beauty, food and entertaining. I moved from Southern California to Idaho and love adventuring with my husband Matthew, our two children, and our dog Ginger. We're also pregnant with baby #3, due this autumn! I strive to create a site that’s relatable to women, while also being inspirational. I’m so glad you stopped by!
