Love for California

The best thing about Shane’s job with Westjet is our ability to visit family and friends all over the map. The work may take him away from home throughout the month (not fun), but the benefit of travel is just too sweet to give up.

So that’s what we did last weekend. Headed to Southern California to visit friends Jasmine and JD for some quality catch up time and to cheer on JD at his first triathlon! After two nights in Irvine and two nights in Santa Barbara, after much talking, eating, cheering, celebrating, sipping and more eating, we returned home with grateful hearts for conversations that were had and friendships that were grown.¬†And a plan to make it an annual thing…relay triathlon here we come ;)

Shane & I paid a little visit to Laguna Beach, home of our engagement session two years ago

On our drive up to Santa Barbara, look who we ran into at In-n-Out! ;) Remember my cousins’ baby Koah?

Also on our drive up, we stopped in at the Dallas Cowboys’ training camp. This here is a picture of a guy who misses football season…

Pretty Santa Barbara…

Race day! And two guys who know all about “getting ready” photos ;)

Jasmine made these awesome t-shirts and I didn’t even get a close up shot of the sombrero man running with a six-pack!
Friends Brandon & Kristin also joined (and Regis, not pictured) and we made a pretty fun cheer squad.

And then we toasted, indulged and relaxed…

Much love to Jasmine and JD! You two are two of the best.
