{home again}

We came home from a visit up to my mom and dad in-laws, and headed straight to the beach to spend the day. Since last summer, after reading on Suzy's blog about this cool tower, I have wanted to go and take pictures.


I only "know" Suzy from her blog, and when I emailed her last year and asked her where this photo spot was, she was sweet enough to send me very detailed directions. I kept that email, and added it to our Bucket List for 2012.  So today, as I am standing taking pictures at this beautiful sight, who do I run into but Suzy herself! For those of you that aren't in the scrapbooking world and don't know Suzy Plantamura, read her blog posts for the past month about having brain surgery. Quite an amazing woman!

Oh, and just to keep you all updated,  My mom in-law finished her last round of chemo, and although she had a reaction this time (apparently it makes a difference in what order your "chemo cocktail" of meds are given in) overall she is doing really well. Next up is radiation. Thanks again for remembering her in your thoughts and prayers.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Heather, I don't have an email address to contact you, but the tower is on Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach. Email me if you want specific directions how to get there :)

Mary Ann,
Thanks! I think I can look it up, but if I need anything else I will let you know. It looks like a fun summer outing!
