Good morning dear ones~ I wanted to share a few more photos with you all, from our time in California. Above I am standing with a good friend from my high school and college days. In fact, Sarah was Matron of Honor in my wedding and I was the godmother of her oldest son. Somehow we lost touch with each other about twenty years ago and then just recently I did some searching and found her again. She lives about 15 minutes from my brother and we had a wonderful but short visit. When we used to spend time together, we were both young moms and she worked full time, so life kept us busy. Now that she is retired I got to know more about her life and her passions. I'm hoping this one visit turns into a renewed friendship.
Here she is with her hubby. I fell in love with her Lab pup who at only 6 mos old is one of the mellowest of Lab's I've ever been around. We got caught up on all the happenings with our children and one of her adult boys stopped by so I got to see him after twenty years.
My brother's dog-a Border Terrier. This is the first time I've met miss Izzie and she was adorable.
Hubby and I in their back yard-notice the green grass. Their Magnolia and Tupil trees were also blooming. I had forgotten how beautiful winter can be when you have lots of greenery.
This is what we woke up to today. I love winter here but freely admit to having thoroughly enjoyed the nice weather while in Ca. I also will admit that our summer is much prettier here because we have lots of green while northern Ca. is very very brown.
Wherever you are, may you bask in the warmth of the Lord. Noreen
