I love this place because it’s beautiful, well maintained and aesthetically pleasing. It’s fun just to walk down the street and to admire the plants, displays, fancy cars and fancy people. I love looking in the windows of the shops and to admire all the creativity and beauty.
Here are a few things that caught my eye today and made me smile.
This reminded me of our trip to Turkey. I love the detail and light reflecting on the wall. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Pretty pink potted flowers.
This whimsical elephant in Anthropologie made me smile and stare for awhile.
I am in love with succulents right now, especially wall art succulents like Wendy made for her backyard. These are hanging inside the Splendid store.
Today was another busy day – the end of the school year is wrapping up with lots of festivities. J had a 5th grade pool party at Laurelwood Cabana Club. It was so cold and windy, I couldn’t believe the kids were in the pool. The chaperones were hanging out with our hoodies and hoping for sunshine to break through the clouds and wind! The kids didn’t seem to notice too much and enjoyed playing and swimming, snacks and pizza.
After freezing on the pool deck, I went over to help out at the Peterson Middle School Recreation Day. I found C playing basketball with friends and supervised the Aquathon – a mini bi-athalon with swimming and running. It was a gorgeous yet cool day up on the track. It was cool to be on campus and witnessing Junior High in action.
This is CJ’s favorite lunch time activity – today he got to play for 2 1/2 hours. He should sleep well tonight.
Check out the beautiful cloudscape – so pretty, right?
Tomorrow we are leaving for Colorado to visit Jeff’s grandparents. They are 88 and 92 years old. How cool is that? They are so wonderful and we are looking forward to visiting with them before we move to the Netherlands. There are so many people we want to visit before we move. Jeff is also planning on visiting his dad in Chicago. We have a trip planned to Thousand Oaks for a wedding and to be with family and a trip to Hawaii too. I’m hoping to see my BFFs too – you know who you are! Are you coming to see me or do I have to come see you?? As for places we want to go or see before we move – not that many, actually. I’d like to take my paddle board up the Elkhorn Slough and along the Santa Cruz coastline again. I’d like to eat crab at Than Longh in San Francisco, and I’ve never been to The Counter on Santana Row for burgers. That’s about it. Kinda a short list, wouldn’t you say?
Time to go finish packing – hope you enjoy Memorial Day weekend and kiss a veteran!! Our freedom isn’t free.
