Yay! It’s 20-YAY-teen! Hubs and I rang in the New Year whilst sleeping off illness. That’s how pro we are; we countdown in our sleep. 😏 But on New Year’s Day we managed to get out and enjoy the sunshine.We strolled near Shimada Friendship Park in Richmond. ‘Twas the perfect way to celebrate. Here are the first few photos of the new year. This rock was meant for me. Hubs said it looks like we bought matching plants and a giant rock just so I could take this picture. Here’s to a happy, healthy, and sunshiney 2018! How did you spend New Year’s Day? Share below!
Lucky me, there’s an Arts and Crafts show every Sunday in Santa Barbara! It’s half art and half craft and all fun. Plus, it was a gorgeous day for a walk down Cabrillo Boulevard. The market is easily walkable, and depending how intrigued you are in the goods for sale, you can probably stroll the whole street in an hour or so. There were paintings, photographic works, … …glass art, wood pieces, … …jewelry and other wearables… Some of my favorite finds included these mini kaleidoscope necklaces. The kaleidoscope charms are functional; I’d never seen kaleidoscopes so tiny until I saw these. My niece scored a turtle necklace (currently her favorite creature). And my nephew got a yo-yo lesson from this fascinating yo-yo guy. Until next time Santa Barbara! Santa Barbara much? Share you favorite SB spots below!
