Father's Day revisited...

We held a belated Father's Day celebration in Santa Cruz this weekend with both sets of parents. We started off the weekend with a walk on the beach with the dogs...nothing says Santa Cruz like early morning marine layer! We were both decked out in sweaters and jeans- it was fantastic!

After the sailing trip we headed over to the Santa Cruz Wharf for the annual event, Woodies on the Wharf. What an amazing display of craftsmanship. You know how much I love old cars. We spent a couple of hours wondering around, looking at each and every car.

Next, we met my parents at the Santa Cruz Harbor for a glorious sailboat ride aboard the Chardonnay II, a 70 foot piece of work. So much fun! Windy and cold, but well worth it.

We finished out the evening with wine a great dinner at a new restaurant, Hawgs, as well as wine on the deck. What a wonderful family we have~ we're already making plans for our next rendezvous on the other side of the state (the mountain cabins) this coming weekend. Hopefully it all works out!

I have to admit, it was incredibly hard to leave the 80 degree weather and travel back to the 111 degree valley heat. Yuck. Can't wait to escape to the mountains this weekend!

Happy Father's Day!

I'm almost a week overdue in writing this post- I'm so sorry! I had a horrible chest cold that knocked me out for the first week of vacation. Better now and back in the game :)

Travis and I went to Santa Cruz on Thursday the 18th to celebrate our anniversary and Father's Day with his parents and his sister. We had a great time wine tasting and enjoying the coastal weather. We traveled back to the valley on Father's Day then up to the lake to spend the day with my dad. It was almost cold up there! Nevertheless, we had a great time. Travis was able to wakeboard a bit, even though it was extremely choppy, and I was able to soak up some sun and relax.

I don't have any pictures to post just yet; I was hoping to get a few this coming weekend. We're going back to Santa Cruz, this time with my parents in tow, to take a sailboat ride in the Santa Cruz Bay. The weather should be beautiful and company will be fantastic. We're going to have a nice dinner with both sets of parents and enjoy some family time. I LOVE how my family blends with Travis' family. We are truly blessed.

5 years and counting...

I'm having a hard time believing it has been five years already. Most of the time, Travis and I talk about or relationship together starting from the time we met because we were one of those insta-couples. We met on a Wednesday and we were together by Friday. Our friends started referring to us as TravisandMargo. Invite one of us and the other was guaranteed to attend. We still laugh at our history because we were that couple that didn't have "The Talk." We were exclusive from the get go. We met the Wednesday after Presidents' Weekend in 1999 and we have been a couple ever since. Ten years have passed by so quickly, it's a little scary. Five years ago today we were standing in front of our family and friends, saying our vows and trying not to cry. To this day, I still well up with tears when I think about our ceremony. I love the public vows we said and I love the private vows that we shared with just each other. I still believe in them, I still live them, and I promise to do so for a long time to come. Happy Anniversary, Travis! Here's to five years past and fifty plus year to come. I love you!
