Thanks Karla!

That Karla is such a sweet gal! She has a giveaway every month on her blog and I was lucky enough to win last month's, can you believe it? She hand painted this beautiful sign and it's just gorgeous - the colors are warm and wonderful.

Christmas was lovely here. It snowed on Christmas Eve which made it so pretty and reminded me of years gone by. We stuffed ourselves full of great food for 2 days straight.

We're so excited here. Last night I booked a trip to San Francisco - for free! We've got tons of airmiles that need to be used up and were able to book 4 airline tickets - first class no less! And the kicker is we have enough left to book a hotel and a rental car. We've been accumulating points for years and feel like now is the time to use them all up. We're going in May and will be able to hook up with some old friends who live in Carmel as well, we can't wait! Best part is we will be there for my birthday.

I will be turning 27. Again.

California! That sounds like an awesome trip. That's funny! You and I are the same age. Again.

San Fran! That's not too far from me ... drive on up to OREGON! :)
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year too!

California? Did you say CALIFORNIA?!?! Hmmm, no way I can let ya be in my glorious state and NOT see ya, chica. Just how much driving do you feel like doing in that rental car? ;) My life "plan" seems to be changing drastically over the past weeks, so who knows WHERE exactly I'll be by May, but we MUST really try and see what can be done...even though you will NOT have Wilbur with you...sigh. ;)

Congrats on your fabulous trip. I live about 30 from San Francisco so I can assure you, hopefully, the weather will be perfect. AND, a stop in Carmel sounds lovely:)
Enjoy the coast and welcome to our state!!
Hug Life, Marylou

Yay for you Joy! You will have so much fun. I love Carmel--such a beautiful town!
Hey, Tim will be out there in May too! He's doing a trip along the coast in a Winnabego with the guys for his buddy's 40th. (He's MUCH older than us!)
Have a happy new year!
