The vacation was fun! There were issues with Bean while we were gone that we simply couldn't have gotten through without the help of family and friends. While we were there we enjoyed Whale watching, an overnight and haunted tour on the Queen Mary, riding bikes on Venice Beach...lots of swimming in their pool and glasses of wine :)

Now just over a week and we have our wedding :)

It was a little chilly on the ocean for the whale watching... But better then the 15 degrees that was happening at home.

wedding - trip - wedding- baby - YIKES!

In two days Traci and I will be landing in sunny southern California. We are the guests of my boss and his wife. We have seven days of events that are planned for us. Oh how I LOVE that I am the guest and they are the planners. We are going to the Queen Mary- staying overnight on the boat, taking a haunted tour, going whale watching, swimming in their pool in the middle of the desert.. going on a safari and feeding animals at the San Diego Zoo... it is going to be a GREAT time..

They are on the brink of a divorce.

I am ignoring that last part and in my head, at least for the 7 days we are there, they are going to be the most in love couple my brain has ever seen.

A mere 17 days later, we get married.

Holy shitballs.

Oh- and right when we get back from vacation, Traci starts training for a new job.

Bean turns 9 months old and in April we are opening our doors one more time.

Traci and I are so excited! After much talking, tears, communication with our licensing worker- we are on board to expand our family. Bean needs a sibling. As much as we thought we were a one kid family (which we will be happy with if it turns out that way) we would love another.

I wish I could put into words how I feel about Traci. I could be all goopy and use sparkly words... but that isn't me. I wish I could send you the FEELING I get about her. Intense love. The desire to experience everything I possibly can with her. I feel like I am living in a fairy tail. Not that it is all strawberry colored glasses- but even the difficult times are easier to deal with because of her.

And with that- I need to stop fake working and actually do something.

Right after I make a list of everything I need to pack.
