Gratitude Monday...

It's been one month since I last checked in.  
We are now 
settled into our home in the 
San Fransisco Bay area.  
I am so very very grateful.  
Here's a little bit of what have have to celebrate.

~We are 21 miles from The Wharf

~ We are less than 50 miles from Half Moon Bay

~ We are about a mile away from the San Pablo Reservoir

~We have calla lilies, roses, jasmine, lavender and lemon trees in our yard that make my whole house smell like spring time in a botanical garden

~Fresh seafood

~Flying kites

 ~Wildflowers like Crazy.  They are in every color, and in every spare place of land.

~Snails, earthworms, and slugs.  (seriously, my kids are THRILLED)

~Seashells, and a new growing collection of sea glass

~She finally has her own room

~My children are in my backyard picking strawberries right now.

 What more could I ask for?

I'm going to try to get back to this blog regularly.  
Here's to a brand new week full of possibilities.

Just caught up on your, Amanda you guys are so blessed! What a beautiful area! And Ava having her own room is SUCH a special thing, it really is. California coast is really lovely, but especially the more northern parts. Let me know when you hit Napa/Sonoma areas...Love to all.
Love Steph
