Sunny California

California had been home for us since we first met in 2001 and also the stage where our friendship slipped into romance, turned into a pledge and matured into a wedding vow. We nested for three years in the city of Glendale, an urban community landlocked between Griffith Park and the Verdugo mountains, from which one could see the Los Angeles skyline on a clear day.

California was also the stage for a number of our much anticipated get-aways. We consider ourselves fortunate now to have trecked the sunny foothills of the Santa Barbara mountains and gasped before the cold beauty of the eastern Sierra Nevada.

However, what made California very special, was the proximity of family. It is primarely to you that we dedicate this and upcoming posts. We love you and we miss you. Juan, Rita, Bollito, Cookie, and Caramelo.

In the beginning...

there was Rachel, and Rachel was with Rita though she was not Rita. Thanks to Rachel, the first post was made possible.
