SoCal Roots

Dear Diary,
Southern California has a special place is my heart.  It's home!  Born here, raised here and now raising my children here.  I grew up in the Inland Empire, went to college in Long Beach, traveled around the world and found my way back to the South Bay.  There are so many things I love about Southern California.  I love the weather, beach, people, restaurants, mountains, desert, hiking, and shopping.  I love living by the beach and smelling the ocean air.  I love our community, our schools and church.  As much as I like to travel and see new places, there's no place like the comfort of home and my home will always be in SoCal!

Thoughts For Today

Dear Diary,
Today I'm angry!  Not with my husband or kids... they're wonderful!  Not with my beautiful life... it's great!  I'm angry about what's happening in our world with Islamic Terrorism.  Today Brussels was attacked.  Isis was responsible.  Our President reacted very briefly and nonchalantly from Cuba while visiting a Communist Dictator and making a speech about the similarities and differences between our countries and how democracy is the way to solve Cuba's problems.  You can pull a transcript of the speech if you're interested.
What I wanted Obama to say is... these terror attacks have to end and we are going to do everything in our power to make that happen.  There has been attack after attack on American soil and worldwide.  Islamic Terrorism is only getting bigger and stronger.  I pray for peace.  I pray for safety.  I also pray that our leaders take the proper steps and measures to keep our citizens safe.
I look forward to the next Republican President who will take action against terrorism and restore confidence and pride in our country.  I have high hopes!  I love America!  And I know being the greatest nation in the world is possible... again!

20 years ago I dined at a little restaurant similar to this in Luxembourg.  Closest I've been to Brussels.

Date Night Concert

Dear Diary,
Culture Club, Billy Idol, Tears For Fears and Missing Persons!  It doesn't get much better than that!  We had the best time at the i Heart Radio 80's concert at the Forum.  Dinner at Il Fornaio was great too!  Love you hunny!
