Being home...




So, tonight we went out to dinner for my Aunt Joy and Uncle Mike's birthday. (they are on the same day). I love being home even for the small things like that...Things that I miss out on because Im in Utah. I love coming home. My visits are so few and far between so when Im here I feel like I have a million things I want to do. Yuba City is good for quite a few things and I think the longer I am away the more I appreciate them. When Im here I love to...
1. Go to the Punjab bizarre...It is an authentic, and I mean authentic East Indian store and it has THE best bracelets, jewelry and probably some of the most beautiful fabrics ever!
2. Go to the Thrifty bargain ...THE Best thrift store of all time.
3. All of the antique stores, there are so many good ones here.
4. The orchard supply stores...They have very interesting items, did I mention im in the market for a good pair of overalls...Im not quite sure why, but Im serious about getting a pair...And believe me this is the place to do it.
5.Going to church...It is a funny thing when you see a child you use to babysit and they are now in collage. Or seeing how fast life really is, when you see someone who was young when you saw them last, and now has age written all over their face.
6. Going out to my grandma's...I have some of my best memories there, time spent with my cousins and my sweet, sweet Grandpa.
7. There is something about walking into the house I grew up in...It sort of brings me back to a time in my life when I felt COMPLETELY safe, loved, and carefree, you know...Like a much simpler time. I love that, I always get that feeling.
Anyway, Im loving being home. Adam comes tomorrow so that makes it even better and hopefully I will have some photos to blog!!!

Overalls huh! If anyone can pull it off, you can. Just please leave both straps up.

I look forward all year to us having Christmas together. With you and Amy in Utah, and the boys in San Diego, it is the one time of year we can all be together as a family. I wouldn't trade it for the world, it's our Family time.

I'm so glad that you are having such a great time! I know what it feels like to be so attached to California! And I think the overalls are a great idea, I've always wanted blue pin stripped ones like the ones my grandpa used to wear on his farm!
