Santa Cruz Sunshine

Today was the second day of spring break and Christian and I explored UC Santa Cruz and the surrounding community together. I loved having time alone with him, discovering something new and something old. 

   
    
 
It’s a beautiful campus, nestled in nature and rolling hills, with gorgeous views of the ocean.

After our tour, we had lunch at one of our old favorite places, Charlie Hong Kong.  We had to head back over the hill, but I couldn’t be this close to the ocean without sticking my feet in the water. Luckily my kid is a good sport and appreciates my love for the beach. It was an absolutely perfect day to be there.

    
 
   
 
I love the beach and its majesty. This is my happiest place on earth. I wish I could live right here next to the waves crashing. Maybe one day…but today, I just enjoyed these few perfect moments for a few minutes.

How was your day?

Life is good.

My Baby is Growing Up

I am not really ready, but are we ever really ready?  

Today we had our first official college tour with our oldest. We have visited several college campuses in the past, but have never signed up for an official tour. Today things felt real. We are aware that the time is near and it just feels weird and normal and weird.  
 
My baby is growing up! Now if I could only slow down time. For now, I’ll just enjoy the moment.

Life is good. Love this life.
