California, Here I Come!

Beach

I’m officially getting excited now–I am road-tripping (is that a word?) out to the central California coast in a couple of weeks.  I’ll be going with my friend Jody again (we did it just about this time last year, too) and again we’ll be leaving husbands home to watch over the homefronts!
