Christmas Tree Decorating

Thanksgiving on a Train

Our First Vacation Without Marley...

To say that Michael was excited is a bit of an understatement! For our first sans Marley vacation we went to Sonoma County to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I love wine and Michael loves beer, so we went where we would both happy, to just eat, drink and be married!! Although we both missed Marley, we managed to have a good time anyway!

Russian River is Mike's FAVORITE brewery, and to actually be there drinking his favorite beer from the source was like drinking from the fountain of youth...or something like that!Oh sweet nectar...
All the vines, just here at home, are changing color! It was beautiful!!
Kendal Jackson, wine and cheese pairing! Yumm!!

Race for the Cure

My mom, Marley's Gramma, has bravely and gracefully defeated breast cancer twice. To honor her and her strength, the three of us walked the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K in San Diego. Marley was a total trooper, and clearly the winner!
He and Dad walked triumphantly!
We all wore signs on our back to celebrate Mom and her victorious battle!
It was so amazing to see how many people came out to celebrate and honor everyone who has been affected by breast cancer. All proceeds from this race went to the men and women in San Diego who are battling breast cancer without the health care. I couldn't even imagine having to choose between treatments or paying the mortgage. I am glad that we were able to help, even if it was a small gesture.
