Good Luck!

Did you know that you get seven years of good luck if you kiss a sea cucumber? Just another perk of teaching the 5th grade and taking the kids to outdoor school. Yuck!

1 Year

We celebrated our first anniversary this past Sunday with a packed day of adventure. Being that it was a Sunday, we were able to attend church in Templeton in the morning. (The same church we were married in) It was so much fun to be back in that tiny white church exactly 1 year later. It was great to sit in the pew and take it all in. After that we grabbed a picnic lunch at a local deli and headed out to find some great wineries in the Paso area. We spent the entire afternoon driving down country roads and exploring. We headed back into SLO for dinner at Thai Palace and then rented a hot tub at Sycamore Mineral Springs to wind down the evening. We pulled the cake topper out of the freezer and gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised that it tasted just as good as our wedding day. We had heard all the stories about it tasting like cardboard! We must say that the first year just flew by. Here's to our second year of adventure...

Bathroom Remodel

We have been hard at work again ripping out the old fixtures in the front bathroom and updating. We decided to tile the shower, paint, add wainscoting, and voila!

Our first guest in the new bathroom. She came appropriately dressed.
