The SLO life.

For years, our favorite place in the world to visit has been San Luis Obispo, CA. We were first introduced to this wonderful city when we stayed at the Apple Farm. This lead us to the actual exploration of the city itself. We have walked Monterey and Higuera more times than I can count. We always visit our favorite shops, some are no longer there. But the overall feeling of the place is “Welcome!” Now, we actually have the opportunity to live there. My hubby has accepted a job at a GREAT company there is in his second week. It’s a wonderful opportunity, and he is inspired once again. I, on the other hand, am now standing in the middle of our home thinking, “What in the WORLD have we gotten ourselves into??????” I really hate to pack… no , really, I HATE to pack… We are two pack-rats who got married and produced 2 baby pack-rats. AARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!! I really have no idea how I’m going to get through this. The only thing I can think of is to just stay focused on the end result. SLO…SLO….SLO…. I can’t wait to be able to enjoy the SLO life on a regular basis…

Mother’s Day Memories.

All I wanted for Mother’s Day this year was to spend the day with my family in our favorite place, San Luis Obispo. They were so sweet and gave me my wish! First, they showered me with gifts..

This beautiful Willow Tree box was from my youngest…

My oldest made my favorite Key Lime Bars from scratch, mmmmmmm!!!

Hubby did pretty good too… ;0D

Then off to SLO!!

First, lunch at our favorite place..

With our 2 beautiful daughters…

As we walked around, we came upon an amazing site.  First, I saw this dog…

A very forlorn looking guy. So sweet and of course I wanted a pic… So I walked around to the other side of the car for a better look and saw…

THIS guy!! I fell in LOVE!! He was the most amazing looking hound.

Just LOOK at that face!!! He was amazing!!! This guy DEFINITELY made my day.

So we said goodbye to our favorite place…but not for long :0)

The Last Day

This day is definitely bitter sweet. It is a day that I’ve been looking forward to for about a year. I had hit burn out pretty badly after 9 years as a Behavior Aide and had decided to take a year off. Then 4 weeks ago, God sent our life into warp drive! Rob has a new job in a wonderful city, I have to get the house ready to sell, the girls are entering the next phase of their lives, our family dynamic is going to radically change, and I will be a stay at home mom again. WOW!! I consider myself pretty easy going but this is alot in a short amount of time. The hardest part will be leaving the little girl I’ve been with for the better part of 3 years now. She has been the toughest but most rewarding assignment I’ve had so far. I love her like a daughter and when she smiles, it just melts the heart. Being with her 1-1 for so long, it made it hard to really see her progress. She has come so far, and I am SO proud of her. She will probably never understand this, or really care, but that’s OK. She will always be in my heart, like one of my own children. The laughter, the tears, and definitely the stories to last a lifetime.

On to the next great adventure!!
