You know, sometimes I wish I lived in a place where we had distinct seasons...but I just can't help enjoy the fabulous weather we have here year-round in CA! :) My mom and I drove along the coast today, starting in Dana Point and ending in Huntington Beach. We stopped at a few antique stores, ate some lunch at the harbor, and stopped quite a few times so I could take some photos. Good times with mom, and great weather along the coast. I don't think you can beat the CA weather!

Well, this holiday was a little bit different. My mom's boyfriend and his kids came down from WA to celebrate with us the week before Christmas. We had a great time getting to know the Audets. A few days after they arrived, Ray-Ray proposed to my mom, and they were engaged! They haven't set a date yet, but we're gonna start planning a wedding! Crazy! :) - but exciting! We spent a great deal of time eating (or at least talking about food), visiting relatives, froliking on the beach, having a gingerbread house contest, taking tons of pictures, and just hanging out talking. Good times for sure!
Since my mom will be getting married, this will most-likely be our last Christmas in the house I grew up in. That was a bit depressing for me. But I know that bringing the two families together is going to be great, and the new traditions we will start are going to be very special. I hope you all had as special a Christmas as we did!
