California Dreaming

Returned from California, got an ear infection & strep throat (apparently they’re not just for kids!) and then immersed myself in digging out of the inevitable backlog at work. All that stress has made the vacation seem like it was months, not days, ago.  Was vacation really worth it?  Hmm… these pictures would tell me “yes!”

Such a beautiful part of the country. We’re lucky to have family out there so we can visit every year. At least this bit of sunshine and 70-degree weather can tide us over ’til spring finally appears in Minnesota…maybe in May??
