It's a Beautiful Life

We have been in San Diego long enough for me to safely say that we really love it here. There is such a nice casual feel to this place that makes it feel sort of like a great pair of jeans, it just fits us well. This is what I have been able to see each day through our windshield:
Yesterday, while at Sea World, Nathan snapped this picture of me that I just love. It's not that it is a great picture of me. It's not even that I'm doing what I love-taking pictures. Especially since I'm using the "baby" camera to take quick and easy video clips, rather than using the camera I truly love.

It is because this picture sums up my life right now. While I am enjoying something so cool to me, there is something as cool sitting right next to me. It is almost like a kid in a candy store feeling-I hardly know where to look in order to take it all in. This has been the constant theme in my life for the past eleven months. I don't think I'll ever be able to wrap words around this experience of ours to describe it to others. It has been the most incredible gift I have ever received to wake up each day knowing this is my life.

Living the life in gorgeous San Diego and loving it so much!

We loved San Diego when we stayed there! The most perfect climate, best food etc etc. Try the Farmers' Markets. We found that each community/area/neighborhood had a certain day of the week for a market. We got the best strawberries ....mmmm.

Looks like lots of fun! I have never been to California before, but it definitely looks like someplace with lots of fun opportunities.
