Another amazing sojourn to Sonora -- but this time it was in April rather than August. The diving was so-so. The fishing, dining, and cool dry air more than made up for it, however!
After the demise of Opera Pacific, I figured my opera days were over. Then along came Long Beach Opera and a very weird opera about Nixon in China. The rest is history...
Easter with the La Rosas, the Kim, the El Torito Grill buffet, and a romantic walk around Balboa Island.
Visiting the Buchholz's and their new baby just hours after she was born.
Malaysian dinner goodness at Belacan Grill with friends! Happy birthday, honey!
A surprise 50th birthday party for the world's hardest working trucker.
The trifle was a hit again! Game night and dinner at DK's to celebrate my 38th (ouch!) birthday.
Welcome to 2010! Sure, we may be in the midst of the worst recession since World War II, but you'd never know it from the quality and quantity of food, drink, and people assembled at DK's place!
Our first Christmas together! Newport boat parade before Christmas. The day after, we went up to San Luis Obispo to celebrate Jared's birthday and open presents with the kids.
We did it! No, we're not married yet. But we did get our marriage license today, along with a few photos to commemorate the event.
Our romantic ten day honeymoon on the island of Maui! Hiking in the rain forest, jumping off waterfalls, horseback riding, snorkeling, and touring the whole island. Lavender farm, goat dairy, winery, volcano, and more!
After the wedding, we spent a relaxing few days at a quaint ocean-side hotel in Avila Beach, soaking up the sun and just enjoying the first few days of marriage.
