Last month Bluejay and I went to CA to visit my parents. My sister, Stacey had just returned from a summer in the Middle East, so we had several Starbucks dates to catch up and hear all about the trip!
We got to meet up with one of Stacey's best friends who recently move from MN to CA. We went to The Grove where we actually ran into Ruppert Grint several times. So cool!
Me, Stacey and my cousin, Julie, at our favorite cafe in Santa Cruz! It has the best view!
My mom and grandma are so adorable!
Bluejay and I spent our third anniversary in California. While we got to have a fun getaway in Palm Springs a few days later, we celebrated the evening of our anniversary with family at one of my favorite places in Northern California. The Stanford Theatre! Plus, they were showing two of my favorite movies! Roman Holiday and Sabrina! It was wonderful.
Bluejay and I have been married for three years now! How did that happen? Where did the time go? And yet, in the same sense, it's only been three years? I feel like I've known and loved him forever! *swoon*
We are excited to spend our "third honeymoon" in CA. Instead of calling them anniversaries, Bluejay and I call them honeymoons because we try to do something fun and go somewhere new each time. For our wedding honeymoon we went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It was magical. For our first honeymoon we went camping in Northern Mn. It rained the entire time and was soggy. But, we did spend loads of quality time playing cards in a coffee shop in Duluth, MN. For our second honeymoon we went kayaking on a lake in the cities and then to our favorite Spanish restaurant. We love paella! This year, we found a groupon to stay at a swanky hotel in Palm Springs, CA. It will be a fun excuse to get all dressed up and flirt!
Before we left MN, I found the tiniest patch of black-eyed susans by the library. Of course I told Bluejay that I was going to drag him out there for a couple photos at some point. It's been a while since I've taken pics of the two of us. So this is our third honeymoon session. At the last second, I grabbed the Palm Springs postcard off the fridge. Remember this post about the sweet old lady who received the postcard on accident? Her letter & the postcard remain on our fridge indefinitely.
