We have returned! And let me briefly say that taking a good old fashion, low tech,
low-budget, road trip really does wonders for the soul–better than chicken soup.
My mind is clear and my heart is open. Stayed tuned…
Hello, friends! We’ve been enjoying time as a family and taking mini road trips, but I sure do miss my blog
and all you lovely ladies! The latest was a jaunt up to the Seattle area and Vancouver B.C. I have so many
images (I did manage to sneak in some vacation outfit photos) and can’t wait to share them with you. Here’s
a shot of the harbor skyline in Vancouver. We’re off for another week, heading down to San Jose and Bay
Area to visit with family and friends. I’ll be gone for just a little bit longer, but promise to return refreshed
and with loads of stories. Have a wonderful week!

We survived the mid-90’s temperatures. No spontaneous human combustion occurred. A grand time
was had by all at the Coast and Little C was the happiest boy, having discovered the world’s largest
sandbox! Here’s the path from our friends’ house to the beach.
A view of the beach, at the end of the path. This photo captures how I felt upon my return from the
trip. Refreshed and relaxed. I’m getting a print of this photo to place in my office as a daily reminder
to MAKE. Time. to breathe when days are hard. This says it all.
This beach is fancy. I have my very own personal wind machine, complete with wind machine operator.
This alone is worth a short 2 hour drive from the city to the beach.
Upon reaching the end of the path and reveal of the beach, Little C says, “Woah”. He was super excited
to see the sand go on for miles and miles. Is there anything better than a child’s laughter?!
I think not.
There is no swimming in the Pacific Ocean, unless you want hypothermia. No bathing suits for this gal.
Little C, the Explorer.
Look out for the next post where I’ll show more photos from our adventure to the Coast and how I
wore the blue top with shorts when the weather was warmer. Hope you all had a chance to relax this
past weekend. It’s a holiday weekend up ahead–something to look forward to! How will you be
spending the last official weekend of summer?
