Why I love Santa Barbara

I had a great time in SB this Memorial Day weekend, and was reminded again why I love living in Santa Barbara. So it's true that Santa Barbara has the most overpriced housing in all the US...but it comes down to it I think it's worth it. Below are a few of the reasons that I think Santa Barbara is an awesome place to live.

1. There are more restaurants per person in Santa Barbara than any other city in the gool 'ole US of A, and I love to good food (I have no idea if this is really true, but I hear it all time).


2. There are ocean views on one side and moutain views on the other, and I love to live in a place with great views.


3. When it is cold it's 60 degrees,and when it is hot it's 80 degrees, and you really can't beat weather like that. Santa Barbara has the perfect climate!

4. Culture. Santa Barbara has great culture and community: art museums, history museums, artists, technolgy, 4 colleges, every type of restaurant, I could go on and on.

5. REALITY. I just love this church, from the pastor to the location to the people. It's just flat out a great church!

6. The BIG DOG Parade...you haven't lived till you have seen people and their pets dressed in matching outfits parading down the street as if it was normal.

7. iModonnari. We went here today, and it's is always an awesome time. Here are a few of my favorite shots from this year. These are chalk drawings on pavement, which really should amaze you.


8. THE DOGHOUSE on Milpas Street. This place has awesome hotdogs and a great story! If you haven't been, you need to check it out.

I could really go one, but I need to stop now.
