Summer, you heart breaker, you!

I've got the after-vacation blues something wicked!  It's been a pretty crazy transition out of two jobs, and then a week long vacation in beautiful San Diego with a super fun marriage celebration to boot.  Normal life is feeling...well...a little blah to be honest.  I know that I should revel in this whole relaxed, routine, I only work one job nonsense but it's feeling sort of let-downy right now.  Although I know it won't last long as we have our one year anniversary coming up (from the first REAL wedding!) and then another wedding - this time in Utah (road trip-oy!)

But man looking back on that last week of vacation, I can't help but yearn for the salty air, the beautiful sunsets, the leisure of no email.  Oh Summer, why you gotta break a girl's heart?!

 This is my clone, aka the one from whence I got ALL my DNA.  And gelato - yums!

Backyard summer dinner with my favorite parents :)

Spent an afternoon at the Botanical Garden, marveling at the things I cannot grow - BLACK THUMB!

Giant breakfast with my sister from another mister!
My mom grew this - I helped it fulfill it's destiny to become zucchini bread

 Gorgeous day at the gorgeous San Diego Mission

Italian beach babe!

SP breaks free of work and joins the party - Beach again!
Family minus one baby brother

 Danced our feet off at a beautiful Celebration of Marriage!

Sunset at the beach, lovely!
And this one kills me every time, why did I move away again?!

A true, proper, Sarah rambling is on it's way.  I know this blog has sort of derailed as of late, but my normal schedule (boo) should finally allow some more time for me to get all of my crazy out here on the internet on a regular basis.  And I have about a week to finish the honeymoon chronicles before it's our anniversary - Roma baby Roma!  More to come for sure!

Goodbye sweet summer, bring on Fall, my boots are a'waitin!

What I Liked About Today - The Day Off Edition

So this one should really be titled - what I liked about yesterday but you know how it goes...

-watching morning news shows with a mug of peppermint tea
-leisurely walk with the pup down my favorite street, marveling at the Victorian houses and the giant trees
-leftover pizza for lunch
-watching my favorite movies over and over and over again
-laying in bed and on the couch and in bed again
- baseball games with my favorite people 
-popcorn and cheese 
-sunshine that is gorgeous but not too hot
-nextdoor neighbor baby puppies! 
-NOT being at work! 

My snuggle furbaby!

Popcorn, cheese, and artificial sweetner - only the best for me. 

Baseball goobs 

I could get used to baseball in a private suite.

Baseball bingo!

Gorgeous skyline

A much needed day off and now I'm back and feeling a little bit more like myself each day. And there was a chill in the air today...fall? Is that you? I'm ready for ya!
