Monterey Girls' Trip

About two weeks ago, Ruby & I went down to Monterey to gather with some amazing women - my mother, sisters, grandmother, aunts, & a handful of cousins. These women are beautiful, strong & spirited. They are full of life & love. Our purpose for gathering was to create a family cookbook, something that has been discussed for years, but never put into motion until now (& let me tell you, it is going to be good). While spending these few days with them, I realized what an incredible legacy I am a part of, that my own daughter is a part of. I am grateful for this righteous group of women & to have them as such wonderful examples. I am truly blessed.

Day 1: my favorite place for breakfast, First Awakenings.

Day 2: typing recipes into the cookbook

took a walk down to the beach

Day 3: went to church & then spent time at the pier looking at starfish & seaguls

ate dinner at El Torito - the food was delicious.

a rain boots & t-shirt kind of day

Will loves nothing more than playing outside, whether it's sunny, windy, or rainy. He couldn't resist running for his rain boots when he saw Scott out back. He grabbed them from the garage, shoved them on (with some motherly assistance) & raced through the sliding door. I love watching the pure joy of this sweet boy & seeing him live his life as fully as he knows how.
