You know that song is in your head now...don't front. Here ya go...just come back to the blog after you listen to this...
So we made our annual pilgrimage back to San Diego...to do pretty much the same things that we have done every year since we left in 2007...
My favorite thing about our trips is always our time spent walking on the boardwalk. It doesn't matter what the weather is like...this is always my 'perfect space'. I love it. My clock never did adjust to Pacific time...I stayed on 'Jenny time' meaning I woke up at 6am every day we were there (and have been doing that since we got back to the east coast, too...sheesh!) I walked the boardwalk almost every day by myself in the mornings, logging almost 3 miles each time...then usually walking it again with John later on in the day. I love it. Beach and ocean on one side, restaurants, little shops on the other...folks walking, riding bikes, skaterboards, roller blades...pups...an occasional Slo-Mo sighting (or sightings of things FAR MORE crazy than a dude rollerblading to classical music in slow motion...) I can't wait to go back and do it again next year!
And last up...you know there had to be some #AngelDropART on this trip. Had to happen. This time...it was a little different. My close friend thought she had lost her dog on a hike in Colorado...kind of an amazing story...the dog went in the stream to fetch a stick...got caught in the current and was carried off...swept under a bridge...everyone thought that the pup, Miakoda, had drowned. It was pretty awful. I could hear in my friends voice over the phone just...heart break. Loss. Defeat. And I hated that feeling, especially being so far away where I could not even comfort her.
When I got off the phone with her that day, we were out thriftin', I told John about it...but we did not believe that the dog had drowned. We believed that she was still alive. We had hope.
Crazy, right? Yeah, crazy awesome. The local news even heard about it and did a segment on them. Here is a link to the story;
So...that being said...here are some pics of just some of the angels that I gave out that Friday morning. Maybe they helped, maybe they didn't...but the folks that received them sure were happy to accept this gift of #heART;
