A couple of weeks ago, Damien, Hayden and I took an impromptu trip to Santa Barbara and stayed at the gorgeous Bacara Resort & Spa. One of my favorite things about living in LA, is how easy it is to travel to gorgeous locations. From the desert, to the beach, to the mountains and everything in between, California is one diverse, beautiful state! It was the perfect two-night stay accented with gorgeous clouds, perfect temps and yummy food (sorry, I was too busy eating to take photos of it…my bad!). Bacara is a stunning resort with amazing service and hospitality, I highly recommend it and…dogs are allowed! Hayden was very happy to come along with us and run on the beach for two days in a row, he didn’t want to leave. This weekend I’m in Nashville for a gig with Macy’s and Damien is coming with me, so follow our adventure on Instagram @grasiemercedes. There’s sure to be lots of photos of fried stuff and live music. Happy weekend!
