I got to thinking while we were over there how lucky we truly are. We are able to have a lovely little home, all the love in the world within both of our families, not to mention our marriage, and the ability to see the world. How many people really, truly, get to travel and see the whole world? Not many. Not many are able to, and I really feel happy and blessed for that reason.

LUCKY friends can see them! Ahh I want to go back what a breath of fresh air!
While we had a layover in San Fran on the way there, we went to visit my cousin at the (amazing) restaurant that he manages. It was very nice (we had a $185 bill...) and the food/drinks were wonderful!
What a great idea, and on the CHEAP! Framed vintage cards!! I see a little antique store hunt in my future....
This is Cafe des Amis in San Fran! If you get a chance go there, it is very uppity and my cousin said all the women that come "can barely get in the door because their rings are so big!" But what a great atmosphere.
No I'm not above taking pictures of a beautiful bathroom. I love all the mirrors!
Oh, Hello, Kailey! What, I said I loved the mirrors??!!
