Happy New Year!

What a slacker I am over the holidays. Hopefully now that the holidays are over, I can get back into a much more regular blogging schedule.

I went to a wedding in Fresno this weekend. Fresno is north of Joshua Tree, in the San Joaquin Valley. One of my cousins on my mother's side of the family got married. My mom has a pretty big family, with 5 siblings. I had not seen many of these relatives in years. Maybe even DECADES!!! So it was really good to go and reacquaint myself with these people. It was a beautiful wedding. It had been such a long time since I was in Fresno. I had forgotten how beautiful it is there, with all the orchards and vineyards. It was cloudy and foggy and fairly cold. It was fun to see fog, which is not something we get much in the desert!!!

I am planning a giveaway this week. I just got over 10,000 hits on this blog over the holidays, so to celebrate that, plus the new year, I felt it was a good time. I know many of my blogging friends had giveaways for Christmas, but I could not get my act together for that. So stay tuned. Details will be posted this week!!!

Happy 2009, everyone!

10,000 hits? Holy moly!

I haven't been to Fresno in at least 10 years....but it was only a quick trip through to the airport....

Glad you had fun at the family wedding!
