Big Bear

Greg and I had planned a trip to Big Bear, California for my birthday last month, but we both got sick with the flu that week. Although we had to postpone, I think it worked out for the better because the weather was so perfect last weekend! It was our first trip we've taken together just the two of us. We rented a cozy cabin complete with a full kitchen, fireplace & Jacuzzi tub. On Saturday, we went for a hike on the Castle Rock trail, which had stunning views of Big Bear Lake (see photos of that here). The neighborhood our cabin was in was so charming, and we went for a chilly sunset walk before dinner. My parents surprised Greg and I with a gift certificate to The Pines Lakefront restaurant, and we had the most amazing meal! It was such a perfect weekend away from the city to spend quality time together! We're already planning our next romantic getaway!
