beach day

beachbbq3

We decided to take advantage of this gorgeous weather we are having.  I almost hate to say this, but it has been in the upper 70’s and low 80’s around here lately.  Can’t complain.  This is definitely what we pay for, and I tell you, we PAY for it!  The husband and I rarely have a full day together, so when we do it is definitely a treat.  We packed up the grill (best investment ever), which I’ve talked about here and here, grabbed some burgers,  and headed down to check out the surf.  It was PERFECT!

It’s days like these that I never want to move from Santa Barbara.  Everything seems just fine the way it is.

a year in review

2013

Happy New Year’s Eve!

I know I’m getting old when I decided against having a party tonight, because I honestly don’t think I can stay up late enough.  I know, lame.

I hope everyone had a wonderful year.  We sure did.  Lots of ups and downs, and turnarounds.   Overall, it was a great year!

Most of our year was trying to get pregnant.  As some of you may know we went through mounds of fertility treatments, that ended in us (me) finally getting pregnant.  Wow, I commend any woman that has gone through that.  Hardest thing I’ve ever been through, and you are all my true heroes.  The support I received from friends and even strangers, was the biggest gift I could have received this year.  Unless you’ve been there, you’ll never know the angst, worry, fear, pain, and then relief, if it even works.  Love to all of my mamas.

We did a bit of traveling, which we intend to do more of in 2014. We are starting the year off with a trip to Big Bear with some friends.

I opened my online shop, Love Threads.  I’ve been in the business for over 10 years, it’s pretty much all I know.

My mom and dad made their appearance quite a few times, which we always love.  We tend to get out and travel to different areas along the coast when they are here.

I’m sure I’m forgetting a ton more things, but overall can’t complain, can only be thankful.

I thank every one of my readers who have supported our blog and shop throughout the year.   I am truly thankful for all of you.

2014, is going to be the best year yet!

Peace~
