DAY 6:


I LOVE CAliFoRniA


So there are a few negatives to this place I call home, but today we are only focusing on the positives and they are numerous! So I have had a few reality checks this week as I spoke to my mom in Utah and my friend in NY, both telling me about their freezing temperature, including being snowed in for church. Now there may have been a day when I loved that stuff we call snow and hypothermia, but I don't care for it all that much anymore. Sure it is beautiful out the window, while sipping hot chocolate, but that is not my life at this point. So instead I took my cute kiddos to the park to swing and slide the afternoon away. We were in jackets and pants of course, but no mittens, hats, or bright red noses. Tyler always jokes, "is the price of California really worth the weather." Today, my love, it is! I remember when I first came to the San Jose area (that I remember) in Jr high or high school. I distinctly remember thinking what a beautiful place it would be to live. It is so green and there are trees everywhere, lining all the streets or in the median of the street. I love it. I love that people are "green friendly" here. Ty and I have adopted a few of these "green" habbits. There is so much diversity. Were eat wonderful Indian and Malasian food all the time. There are authetic Asian and Indian markets all over. Anyway, California is a great place to live...or visit...COME SEE US!
These pics are from our fun times out in the backyard.

I am sooooooo jealous of you at this moment! Oh.... and I love buttons too! How come we have never talked about how we much we both love buttons. I am working on a jean jacket right now that I am covering in buttons and jewels, it's going to be rad! JK
I really do love buttons though!

I am thinking California right now would be nice too. To go to the park? I would die. Super cute pics too.

I could go for some of that weather right now, and we don't even have snow. We're so excited to go back to Utah, but I'm not ready for the cold.

I guess we'll just have to come out to visit you soon.

So cute. There are few other places as pretty as california. I love warm winters. We went out today in shorts and sandals. It was the best!

I was thinking the same thing this morning while walking on the beach in 65 degree weather. It's beautiful here and Tyler says that he doesn't ever want to move from here. Hope you are doing well, and maybe we will have to come up the coast for a visit sometime.
