"Happy 30th Birthday!" "To ME?" "Yes, to you!"

That's right! I just joined the 30+ club. This is going to be my year, do you hear me?!? :)

2nd Annual Yosemite Trip

Matt and Ashley Marriano, Kael and Heather Alden, Sarah and Josh Rivera, Austin and Rachel Robinson and Mike and me! Such a great photo op.

In the Fall of 2010 Michael and I had the chance to go to Yosemite National Park with the Robinsons. It was so much fun and you can read all about it here. Well, this year at the end of September, thanks to the thinking and planning of some really great friends, we were able to go again and this time we had lots more people to enjoy the trip with!! I love Yosemite and I can't believe how amazingly gorgeous it is. I wish it were just a little bit closer so that we could go more often.

The weekend trip consisted of a 9 mile hike up to the top (and edge) of North Dome, some AMAZING meals planned and cooked by the Riveras, some yummy 'smores roasted over some much needed warm fires, and two fun car rides back and forth from LA to Yosemite.

We hope that we can make this a tradition and go back again next year for a 3rd Annual Yosemite Trip :)

And Thanks Kael for taking such amazing pictures!

Oh, dear me. I am obsessed with these boots. I think a pair in green or turquoise would simply make any rainy day bright. :)
