Celebrating With Friends

Dear Diary,
Can I tell you how much fun I had with my friends?  The best time ever!  We started the night at Dia De Campo for my birthday dinner.  The food and drinks were delish!  Then we walked to the Comedy & Magic Club for Jay Leno night.  He was great as well as the surprise guest... Jerry Seinfeld!!!  What a night of laughs, good friends, good food and good times!  Thanks to Ang for planning such a special night and Michelle, Robyn, Ted, Shawn, Oscar, Jaime, Sherry and John for coming out to join the fun!

Birthday Blessings

Dear Diary,
A few weeks ago I celebrated my birthday with 5 of my favorite people. It was a day of sun, spent with my beautiful family.  When I think of the things I really want, I know I am already blessed with everything I need.  My blessings include my faith in God, Jeff, my 4 kids, wonderful friends, our healthy bodies and a cozy home.  At 45 I can truly say my life is rich with love and hope.  My hope for the future is that I continue to have a positive outlook on life.  I pray for continued good health, patience and the confidence to make the right choice for myself and my family.  What it all comes down to is... LOVE and if you have it and are willing to give it... you have EVERYTHING!

Punta Mita

Dear Diary,
To celebrate Jeff turning 50, I booked a trip for two to the Four Seasons in Punta Mita.  For 5 nights and 6 days we slept in, laid on the beach, swam, shopped, walked (a lot) and surfed.  We loved the quiet and beauty of the resort.  One afternoon we walked a few miles to town, then took a bus to Puerto Vallarta to shop.  Another day Jeff found a spot a couple miles down to surf.  The food was soooo good.  The weather was warm and humid.  Our room was luxurious and comfortable.  It was a wonderful peaceful getaway and a chance for us to enjoy each other and our surroundings.  Our honeymoon like getaway was worth every penny!  So thankful for our experience!


 Breakfast every morning with this beautiful view.
Our beach.

Loved the restaurants.
Loved the ocean.

Green, green, green.

Life Is Better With Friends

Dear Diary,
The gift of time is precious.  Last Sunday I met my beautiful friends for dinner in Manhattan Beach.  Making time to nourish our friendships is important for my health, happiness, and overall life balance.  Quality time with friends can be productive personal time as well.  They bring joy, perspective, support and knowledge to the table.  I'm grateful every time we're together.  Thanks Ang, Sherry, Michelle and Missy for always taking time to meet, eat, laugh and share.

Palm Springs Weekend

Dear Diary,
Our weekend away was long overdue.  Palm Springs has always had a special place in my heart.  From 7th grade through college, the desert weekends were a big part of my life.  My 2nd home growing up was filled with memories strolling the strip with girlfriends, relaxing by the pool and shopping the Palm Desert Mall.  It's been years since my parents sadly sold the condo and years since Jeff and I have been back.  We rented a friend's condo on the Palm Desert Golf Course with a private pool.  It was perfect!  Ginny and Gene joined us as we swam, played golf, road the golf cart non stop, shopped on Palm Canyon and enjoyed dinner at Kobe Steakhouse and Las Casuelas.  We also met up with Jeff's friends and clients, Bob and Lenny Foster and spent quality time with cousins Krista and Constnace (love them!).  I enjoyed reminiscing and taking in the new sites! We all had a great time and can't wait to go back when it cools down this Fall.
