Life with a middle schooler, a soon to be middle schooler, and an awesome husband of twelve years. Living in Texas with my heart in Cali, my home then, now, & always will be. No, those aren't my wedding photos. They are our ten year renewal photos.
Some of my favorite childhood memories are at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Yet, the Boardwalk is one of those things I didn't fully appreciate as a child. The amazing view of the ocean as you glide by on a ride (or in my case grip the bar in front of you in fear that these tiny metal brackets holding you up will disintegrate and leave you crashing to the ground).
The bright colors of the rides contrasting with the blue sky, amidst the palm trees.
The relatively cheap thrills in such an amazing location.
Marini's candies - a must-eat
I fully appreciate every moment I get there now.
