We said good-bye to our English cousins yesterday. We drove them to the San Francisco airport, hugged them each and shed a few tears.

Our time together was so sweet! I have more photos to share–i hope you’ll bear with me!

We spent an evening at Montana de Oro and splashed in the water while the sunset. It was magical! These girls have snow at home and were happy to soak up the 80* temps we’ve been having here in California!

Here’s our whole group {above}. So many memories made during our time together.

We’re taking down the tree and putting away all the decorations. I deep cleaned the kitchen and cleared out the refrigerator. I’ll admit I’m having some post-Christmas blues. I love a new beginning but I don’t like good-byes!

Are you ready for a new year? Do you have all your Christmas decor put away yet?
