January brought some great stuff

January has been a roller coaster ride of a month. The month began with a most wonderful surprise from my husband. For almost a year I've been talking with a fellow scrapbooker who lives several thousand miles away. He flew her in for my birthday. I thought I was headed to my very favorite mexican place for dinner with family and friends to celebrate and received a HUGE surprise.

Here are some photos from the night.

Nice hat isn't it?!

Selena laughing on my Mom's lap. Isn't she just about the cutest!

And a photo of Steph and I goofing around! Well as goofy as you can get in my office!

Catching my breath


After the holidays were over this year my husband and I took advantage of the time off to drive west and enjoy some of the beauty of the area. A great time to catch my breath before moving into the new year. I think I would have paused just a bit longer and breathed a bit deeper, if I had known what was waiting for me and my family just after the first of the year. This photo, taken where the Pacific Ocean and Hwy 101 meet, now serves as a reminder to really enjoy those moments of quiet when you can catch your breath. They are a gift from above.
