Joel and I have returned safely to gorgeous Seattle. Since we spent most of the time nauseated from the heat in Southern California (despite being born and raised in such temperatures), we were so very happy to return to a beautiful blanket of light gray, slight off-shore breezes, and the lightest of spring rain. It may sound crazy to some, but we couldn't be happier with our decision to stay in Seattle and to return to it after vacations.
a happy auntie,
Our little holiday was very relaxing. We flew into Long Beach, where my dear old friend Karen and her newest addition, Delaney, greeted us with hugs and kisses. We headed back to their lovely historic home in Riverside, and spent the next few days doing exactly as we had planned: a whole lot of nothing. We enjoyed it so!

They drove us then to Fallbrook, CA to meet up halfway with my bro and sister, with whom we were spending the rest of our time in San Diego, CA. San Diego was much cooler than Riverside, but still was a bit too hot for Joel and I. We opted to spend most of the time on my sister's patio, relaxing, drinking beer, laughing, and celebrating my bro-in-law's Scott's bday at an amazing lounge in SD, The Starlight. It was gorgeous and a very fun night.

We were also told that day of my sister's 12 week old pregnancy!! WHAT UTTER BLISS IS MINE! I was so surprised and happy that my tears were uncontrollable. I was also able to go to an ultrasound appointment with her, which was a luxury that living apart does not usually afford. I could not be happier at the expectation of another niece or nephew.
