I had a swell couple of days spending time down in San Diego, California. After our University of Arizona Wildcats got their butt's kicked. We decided to stay another two days and make the best out of a quick trip. We also rang in the New Year looking out to the ocean. Just in time to catch an amazing sunset, and listen to the soothing sounds of the ocean waves at night. That was such a treat, since I don't have any ocean access, at least not within 500 miles of me. There is just something so mysterious, amazing and overwhelming about the ocean, that blows me away.
While we watched the glow of the setting sun, beam off of our son's smiling face, while he played with the sand. We talked about all the things that we have been through in our lives together, where we are today and where we hope to be in the future. It was a nice night, with lots of grateful emotions and encouraging hopes for the future. When you are in the joy of a moment, you just don't want it to end. I'm glad I was right there in that moment for the time I was.
So with that being said, here are just a few pictures from our quick trip. Even though I love to travel, I am always glad to be home sweet home, and in my own comfy bed at night. Dorothy said it best; "There's no place like Home!" So I reflect on the fact that, I am thankful for the years past and my experiences, they made me who I am today. But I do look forward to a fresh New Year!
On our way to catch the trolley to Qualcomm Stadium for the big game!
Trying to stay in good spirits for my boys and the team! Also, making sure I wear my team colors in vintage style of course!
A quick shopping stop at Wear it Again Sam in Hillcrest, San Diego (so many amazing garments)
A few Art Deco buildings along the way, imagine a Denny's in this glorious pink and black 1930's building.
Aboard the U.S.S Midway
I loved getting to spend some time talking with this WWII Veteran. Such an amazing, lively person, who fought his way through German lines in The Battle of the Bulge.

We had photos from two different cameras, so I will be sure to post a few more pictures. When I sort through the rest of my stuff. I have a backlog of things to attend to, the next few days. Also I would like to express my many thanks for all the lovely blog readers, who gave me awards over the last few weeks. I promise to work on sending those out ASAP! You are all sweethearts!
