forever friends

One of the best things about the holidays is the time I get to spend with family….evenings cuddled together around the wood stove catching up on all the daily chatter. Seems like this just doesn’t happen as much as we would like, so I will treasure it when it does.

The best part about it is, the older I get the closer I become to each of them. I always loved my family but I can say there was a time when I was…well…less than enthused to be seen getting dropped off for school by my Dad in his work truck. Now days, I’ll ride shotgun in any car he comes to pick me up in — added bonus if my Mom is in it too because they, along with all my siblings, truly have become my best friends.

a beautiful San Diego…

What would cause us to wake up at 7am on a Sunday? How about a day trip to San Diego to visit my very best friend, Melissa and her family. Ry and I started the rainy morning out listening to the Zac Brown Band and began our escape to a sunny, warmer place than the cloudy, fogged in 405 freeway. Enjoying San Diego from the water is a true treat and allows you access to many unexposed locations that offer fantastic views which we enjoyed distraction-free.
