Happy Blogiversary to Me! :)

Sea Lions at San Simeon - California Coast

Well, today was my 2nd year blogiversary. . . . my how time flies!  (How many times have we heard/said that?)  But, dang, it is so true!  This is just a quick post to acknowledge the milestone (and get a quick birthday wish in here)!

Big Sur Coast - California
It sure doesn't seem like it has been that long!  And, I am still not posting very regularly, but I am ok with that!  There are far too many things to take care of to worry about that!  I very much appreciate all of you who have been following along!  Thank you!  And, welcome to my newest followers! ! !

Golden Gate Bridge - San Francisco, California
I am planning a few posts to chronicle the trip I took up the California, Oregon and Washington coasts right on up to Vancouver Island, Canada.  What a gorgeous drive!  I can HIGHLY recommend doing this if you ever get the chance and to do it right, try to take a minimum of 3 weeks (more if you can do it!).  It was a few years back, but I think you might enjoy the pics!  Stay tuned!  (These pics are a little teaser from that trip!)

Northern California Coastline
Also, it is that time of year to wish a happy birthday to D!  Another year older!  Happy Birthday! ! !   Stay outta the strip clubs and bars this time around!  ;)   . . . oh, and I suppose I should put in a little reminder to NOT go scuba diving again.  LOL!  :D

Oregon Coast Sand Dunes
I was hoping to get a peach pie all baked up tonight to celebrate and share with you here, but . . . things got away from me and as it turns out, this is about as much as I am going to get done tonight!  It's getting late and I'm tired!  I have the filling all mixed up and the pie dough resting in the fridge, but I don't have quite enough steam to roll it out and wait for it to bake tonight before I want to hit the sack . . . so-o-o-o-o-o-o, I have fresh peach pie to look forward to tomorrow!  I'll eat 2 pieces to make up for it!  OK?  ;)  One for my blogiversary and one in honor of D's birthday!  YUMMM!  I think I still have some vanilla ice cream to go with it!  Yay!  I can't wait!  Deb's recipe looks fantastic and I can't wait to try it!  NONE of her recipes that I have tried have failed to delight!  Look through her site for kitchen inspiration any time you need it!  I can't wait for her cookbook to come out!

Butchart Gardens - Vancouver Island, Canada
Ok, that's it from me for now!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, D! ! !  Grab a fork!  ;D

Capilano Suspension Bridge - Vancouver, Canada
