Dave and I attended my cousin's graduation from California State University Long Beach a few weeks back. It was a great day and it was Dave's first time meeting my grandparents, uncle, aunt, and cousins. We did not prepare for the warm weather and ended up with some killer sunburns. I forget sometimes that the sun can be my arch nemesis. I just need to remember to always bring sunblock. I should actually just put a bottle in my car and leave it.
Anyways....my grandma had many boxes and goodies to give me coming from her, my parents, and other friends and relatives. My favorite thing given to me by my grandma however isn't even vintage. About a year ago I asked my grandma to paint a picture of my favorite spot on their property in Mariposa. It turned out fantastic and is now perched on my bedroom wall and is the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.
I also received some other fantastic goodies. My favorite from my mom is this Ultralite Samsonite green train case. I'm using it this weekend!
The following are various goodies from my grandma and other purchases from the past couple of weeks:
Dave and I took a mini road trip up north for Memorial Day driving through Riverside and his native Redlands. He took me to many spots from his past and showed me some beautiful Victorian homes in the area. We also stopped in at the Mission Inn as a friend of mine will be getting married there this coming November. This is also the same place my grandparents were married 62 years ago. It was just beautiful! Below are a few pictures from our day.
Well, that's all for now. I will try to be better about being on top of my blogs and not flooding them as I did with this one.
Till next time,
