What a fantastic post with fun pictures!!! I too used to live in California! I miss it tons and try to go back as often as I can. At least you still have a beach!! Ours here is too salty and stinky to visit!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year! Check your mail for a little hostess surprise. I sent it out pretty late as I got so so busy, but something to look forward to!
