winter wonderland.

first day of january, you were such a gem!!

we spent our very first day of 2015 in julian, which is a local mountain town just an hour and a half away. well, 90% of the time julian is an hour and a half away BUT when an unexpected snow storm comes and turns this already darling town into a winter wonderland, that manageable drive more than doubles! we loaded up dan's man van with 3 of our friends + my mom at 10am, stopped for some gas and starbucks and arrived at 2pm!!! {insert appalled faces!!} but you see, it wasn't so bad!! we all really enjoy each other;s company and the time went quickly enough. the ladies even got out of the car while we were stuck in traffic to jump around in the snow ;) snow like this is rare in southern california, so to say we were excited was an understatement!!!

love these ladies so so much!!

family love <3

i wouldn't want to spend 3.5 hours in the car with any other group ;)
ps- praying i get my mom's gracefully aging genes!! she blends in pretty well with a bunch of mid/late-twenty year olds!!!

bestest friend + winter wonderland + sunset.

yup this was southern california.

nye 2014.

new year's eve 2014.

new year's eve 2014 was ten-folds better than the previous year which was spent at the airport in puerto rico :( husband and i celebrated with a fun party with some of our very best friends. it was an entertaining evening filled with good conversation, lots of laughter, and mixed with just the right amount of debauchery!! we sent off 2014 with a BANG and i am determined to make 2015 an even better year!!!

^^ notice the matching grey suits on D and Anders? custom made from our trip to thailand!!^^

love that our monthly dinner crew is growing ;) there's 7 of us in this picture!! 

glitter champagne bottles to ring in the new year? why not?!! ;)

2014 you were pretty good to us, but we are so ready for you 2015!!!
