Snippet of Life: Glamping for Zan’s Birthday

Zan and I went “glamping” this weekend… Yes, camping, but “glamorous” camping, it’s glamping! ; ) We went up to El Capitan Canyon to celebrate Zan’s birthday weekend. The campground is located across from the beach, north of Santa Barbara and it’s incredibly beautiful! We stayed in an adorable little cabin that sat next to a creek. There was a cozy, private area with a fire pit, where we cooked, played guitar and relaxed. Since it was Zan’s second time camping I wanted to make it special, so I made him endless Moscow Mules (best camping drink ever, I’ll post the recipe later), nutella-banana s’mores, a campfire dinner and a special breakfast of bacon and pancakes with caramelized bananas, which I cooked over the awesome fire he made. We’re happy we got a little camping experience in before baby boy is here so we don’t look like fools when we take him in the future, ha! We’re true glampers now ; )


Happy birthday to the husband I’ve always dreamed of : )

    Looks like an amazing trip! We really wanted to go on a Glamping trip this summer, but it was really tough to get anywhere good from coastal Carolina. Pictures are great!
