Surf Fridays!

Greetings from a lovely land. Waikiki in 1932.

A family member gave me this postcard that belonged to their great grandparents. There is not one day that goes by that I don't think of the Hawaiian islands. I imagine we'll take the baby there next summer. Until then...

Have a wonderful weekend, filled with Aloha.

A Joyous New Year!

These are some wonderful musicians, Nicki and Tim Bluhm. Nicki Bluhm has a new album called Driftwood, coming out very soon and this song will be on it. It's called Stick With Me and they are singing beautiful harmonies with the Golden Gate Bridge as their backdrop. "I don't wanna hear doubts I wanna hear shouts of victory"! Also, please check out Nicki's blog about all things backcountry. It'll make you want to get out there, explore and climb a mountain.

Tim plays with The Mother Hips, a band that I've been a big fan of for many years. I wanted to share this happy tune with you because with the impending birth of the Watson baby, I've been thinking so much of joy. I realized that joy could be the very greatest gift I could give to our son. So I am seeking it out each and every day.

Speaking of which, he is due any day now! Officially towards the end of this month, but maybe he wants to come early. I will definitely post a pic and share the good news once that happens.

I hope you are having a wonderful start to your year - I bet you are, you little rascals!

p.s. Thanks Seamouse!
