Hmmm....wonder what he is thinking?

While the rest of the country has been experiencing record snowfall and lows, we have had summer in January. The last few weeks have brought sunny skies and temps in the 70's at the coast. We have been taking full advantage of the weather and heading outdoors as much as possible.
Boring post, but I love the pictures of the ocean.

Twelve years ago today, I walked down the aisle and made a promise to love and cherish this man for as long as we both shall live. I feel so blessed to hold those words true to this day. Darin, thank you for being the wonderful father and husband I always dreamed you would be. You still make me laugh and blush at the most random moments. I love and cherish you even more today than I did twelve years ago. Happy Anniversary, babe!!! XXOO

Happy 2011, peeps! I can't believe 2010 has already passed us by. We had an AMAZING time on New Year's eve.....a party thrown by good friends in the neighborhood, which means we could walk home(thank God). We did not manage to take a single picture, which is probably a good thing considering Darin and I thought we were professional dancers and the evening included some break dancing, ballet dancing, and even a lift!!!! Anyhow, as mentioned before, we had a mixed trip to Florida. The good points included seeing family, watching the children with their beloved cousins and even DisneyWorld. The not-so-good points: terrible weather at DisneyWorld, exhaustion from travel, Dane throwing-up, and the worst travel day in the history of our family. Coming back from Florida, we spent an extra hour sitting on the runway due to mechanical issues(remember this is already a 5 hour flight). We then missed our connection from LAX to San Diego and they were going to put us on a bus in the pouring rain. LAX was a MAD house with hundreds of people and bags everywhere. It was total chaos and we imagined the bus ride down would be as well. We finally opted to rent a car and drive ourselves home(a costly option, but totally worth it). We made it home around 3:00 Pacific time, but remember we were still on east coast time. Needless to say, we were THRILLED to be home and spend Christmas and New Year's in our own home. Cliche, but there truly is no place like home!
