Starting 2017 With Pretty Memories From 2016

We are already more than a week into 2017. How? It seems like yesterday that Cole and I hopped in Mithy on a Sunday afternoon. It was Labor Day weekend. We had three days with no work. We wanted to see some of this beautiful state that we call home. So we did.

We, of course, hit traffic on our way through San Francisco. Then we darted north a little farther to snag a Jimmy Johns lunch. We are quite classy; we know. Then, we meandered west toward the coast until we hit Highway 1. Cole zigged and zagged Mithy along the coastal road while I stared at the steep cliffs and rolling waves. . . .

Phew. We made it through Christmas. Through the flights, and the drives and the nights of little sleep. During the four-ish days we were back, we hit up both sides of the family for Christmas celebrations. In case you want to see what that looks like on a map, you can check it out here:

Bay Area Adventures With a Kansas Girl

Janel and I get blow away by the wind on Alcatraz Island.

How is it already November?!?! That means Janel visited almost a two months ago. So much has changed for her in that time: new city, new job, new home (!). I'm so glad you got to come out and have a little vacay before all the change started, Janel. But I can't believe the fun has come and gone.

During her visit, we toured Alcatraz Island, saw the tourist sites in San Francisco, rode a cable car, saw the Golden Gate Bridge, hit up Re:Make by Brit + Co, went to a beach bonfire, and visited three wineries in Napa. We were busy! . . .

All you non-iPhone-loving people out there can now send sweet, confetti-filled cards. So, grab your phone and download the app now (if you have an iPhone, click here). Bonus: your first card is free. Yes, you can send a card fo' free right now. That includes the card, the envelope, all the writing and the stamp. If you are feeling cray, cray, add a confetti bomb (see photo above).

Welcome to the Golden 1 Credit Union arena, home of the Sacramento Kings! And home of these giant screens.

After living in California for more than a year, we finally made it to a Sacramento Kings game. Not only is the NBA pretty awesome, but they are also my favorite team. Why? All the purple. It was terrific. Everyone wears purple, black and gray. My people! . . .
