Five Years and Counting

Today we celebrated our five year wedding anniverary!

Jonathan's amazing gift to me was my choice of vacations from "Christian's 5-Star American Travel Tours" (a spin-off from Christian's 5-Star Restaurant on Valentine's Day."

So which did I choose? San Diego! I've never been to San Diego, and know Christian would just love endless sand on the beach. I'm not sure which weekend we'll go, but I'm really excited!

And a huge thanks to Jonathan for putting together such a nice travel brochure and for being my beloved husband for five years! :)

We Love Verrado!

New residents in our community get a "Welcome to the Neighborhood Apple Pie." How cute is that!

Ours arrived a few months late becuase our neighborhood within Verrado is new and we just got a "Block Captain" (and no, that Block Captain isn't me). Out of the blue, our new block captain showed up with a tasty pie ... how wonderful!

We absolutely love living here in Verrado. Here's some of the reasons why:
  • PIE! :)
  • "Meet and Greet" night for new residents
  • Annual "Neighborhood Block Party" at the park across the street (talk about CONVENIENT!)
  • Beautiful landscaping throught the community (and since we live across from one of the community's main parks, our park was green and beautifully maintained throughout the winter).
  • A park and playground right outside our door.
  • Lots of places to walk. We can take a walk in any direction and never get bored. We can walk up into the mountains that are just up the street, or through blocks of homes ... and some REALLY nice, expensive custom homes. We can walk to the grocery store, coffee shop, dentist (which I have already done), gym, pool, etc.
  • Super friendly people
  • Lots of kiddos
  • Awesome views!

I could go on and on. I really could. No ... really ... I COULD!
