babymoon and birthday bbq!

These are recent pictures from my birthday bbq and babymoons (and the first is a general growing belly shot). Our mini babymoons in Santa Barbara and Mendocino were absolutely beautiful. It was wonderful to be by the gorgeous ocean, wonderful to relax, and most of all it was wonderful to spend time with my husband. I love him so much. I feel really blessed to be with someone who is so completely committed to our relationship, to parenthood, to creating a beautiful life together. Our kid is lucky. :)

I think I'm a California coast kind of person. I love the vegetation, from the chaparral to the amazing redwoods. I love how the redwoods grow in groups to hold each other up. I love the ocean and the mountains so close to each other. And maybe this doesn't have to do necessarily with the coast... but the eating is So. Incredibly. Good here!

I'm going to visit my sister in western Mass soon and I can't wait! We're going to visit Vermont, of which I've had romantic notions forever. Everyone I've met from Vermont is lovely.
