We will shortly be leaving on a much planned and waited for vacation....we're headed to
Disneyland and Las Vegas! We can't wait to see Mickey Mouse again! We go about every two years and love it so much. This will be the first time ever going in the middle of summer though, so I'm sure it will be quite the adventure...the week of the 4th, hmmmm....maybe not such a good idea! Our hotel has a pool though so we'll hang there if it gets too crazy.
We will also be visiting family on the 4th for a BBQ and fireworks. The big finale to our trip will be our 10 year vow renewal in Las Vegas! It's going to be an unforgettable event I am sure.
One reason we are anxious to leave home, is to get away from all the fires. It has been so smoky here for the the last 5 days or so that we can't really go outside too much. It is actually a really scary situation with towns being evacuated all around us. Aaron leaving on vacation in the middle of fire season may not be the best thing, but I know his family his grateful he is! Here's a picture I just took from our backyard....
Hard to capture the true picture of what it's like but it's not good. We normally can see much more out our backdoor, not just gray space. 'Smell-o-photo' would help as well. In any case, we hope that the situation is under control very soon.
Speaking of our vow renewal above, I created a few pieces of jewelry to commemorate the occasion. A necklace for Aaron (oops, thought I had a picture, but guess not!) and a Tiffany-style bracelet for myself.
And on the subject of my jewelry business, it's still going very well which I am so thankful for. I am going to be running on a limited basis however, for the next 6-8 weeks or so while the summer is here. We will be gone for the majority of the summer and involved in activities the rest of the time, that I cannot devote the time I need to it at this moment. I need to remember the reason I started it in the first place, to have something of my own to build and grow with while allowing me the flexibility to be with my kids. Taking the summer off makes sense to me. I do plan to keep up with my creative blog though, so keep an eye on that too! Juella Designs
I'll post from the road when I can...'talk' to y'all soon!
