Fun New Year’s Trip

I can’t believe it is 2018! The time just flies and I think it’s just crazy that we are approaching 2020. I am so happy that my daughter and her husband now live in California within driving distance so we can see each other often. I had a great time in Santa Maria, California at her new house where they live while in the Air Force.  She works at Vandenberg, AFB a Captain now – we are so proud of her accomplishments with her work.

My youngest son and I drove up and spent the weekend. We had a great time playing board games, and my daughter cooking yummy food. We spent Saturday at Solvang, a small quaint Danish town not far from Santa Maria, just south about 20 minutes away. We had a yummy Danish lunch and then walked around the shops and I bought a few souvenirs. I actually bought a new sun hat, I love hats and wanted a new one for my walks. I bought a Danish cookbook which is all about traditional Danish food. Can’t wait to make some of the dishes in this cookbook.  I love the cucumber salad and the red cabbage salad to name a few. Where I bought the cookbook the lady said it was written by the Danish woman who owned the shop. Perfect, down home danish cooking! Can’t wait to get into this cookbook! ❤


I’ve been crazy busy at work and need to write more often. I’m finding it difficult to find time to write my blog! Darn it all, I decided I better get this written and published at least it’s a little something.  I just loved bringing in the New Year spending time with family. I forgot to take a photo of my yummy lunch, but I took a photo of a little dessert from a bakery. It was chocolate dipped cookies and cream and some frangipane desserts.  My daughters treat!  I’m so thankful for my grown children, my middle son did not join us for this trip with his family. Eventually they need to make the trip up to Santa Maria, it was a great time and I know they will have fun there too!  😀
