Animal House

Yesterday for the first time ever Cliff went to the San Diego Zoo. I hadn't been there in about 8 years and I rode the sky boxes for the first time so it was a bit of an adventure of the 2 of us. It was a lovely day that began with brunch at Analog, cheesy tater-tots and endless mimosas are always a great start to the day. When we got home we were absolutely exhausted, the zoo has tons of hill and it felt like we walked all of them.

All in all it was a pretty sweet day.

Catching a Dream

I've always been entranced by the story and beauty of dream catchers. It is believed that dream catchers change a persons dreams. Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through . . . Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper. It was also said that they "caught any harm that might be in the air as a spider's web catches and holds whatever comes in contact with it."
I'm going to start making my own dreamcatcher this weekend, just need some inspiration.
Here's to sweet dreams...

Vegas vacation

Cliff and I like to go to vegas eat and take in the heat by the pool once a year. It was time for our 2nd wedding anniversary (Yay!) so we decided to spend it in vegas :) Unfortunately I didn't bring my camera, because I had loaned it to my little brother and didn't get it back before we left. Cliff had his nice camera, but refused to lug it around... so all I had was my phone.
Our only blurry picture from our anniversary dinner at Bouchon.
I wore my favorite Jovovich-Hawk dress.

You can't take pictures inside of the Love theater, but here are some pics of the wall on the outside of the theater. I had never seen the Love show and it absolutely blew me away. I couldn't stop smiling and laughing, other than when I was crying (of course I cried). Only because the show was so beautiful and at the end when they played "all you need is love" the flood gates opened. The only thing that made the show that more amazing was watching it with my lovie. I can't wait to see it again next year.

The following day we wandered through the Bellagio and they had an Americana theme in their garden. I loved it, it was a 4th of July Fair and I love the fair, except for the rides. The rides scare me and I wont ride them. I rode the ferris wheel once last year, I began to have a panic attack as we reached the top, I the ride mechanic stop the ride so I could get off after the first round down. So, yeah. I don't ride carnival rides.

Here are a few pictures from my trip last month to Florida and Georgia, the in-laws live there and we love visiting.
These were all taken in Jacksonville, FL.
I love that the beach bowl has kept their original facade from the late 80's, it really adds to the charm of the area.

Beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic, which being a California girl I'd never experienced.

...And here's Savannah

Forsyth Park...beautiful.
Historic Savannah is unlike any other place, you feel like you're in a different country when you're there.
