Things have been really wonderful around these parts lately.  Morgan left here on Tuesday bright and early, and I started up work again after the winter break.  It was kind of amazing to get two whole weeks off of work.  We did so many fun things over the break.  I have included a bunch of highlights below! Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

My last trip of 2014, was to LA. We stayed in the beautiful HotelSixty, had tons of lattes, checked out the LACMA Hollywood Costume Exhibit, saw the city from on high at the Griffith Observatory, and spent plenty of time eating and shopping in Silverlake, Echo Park, and Melrose! FUN!

We went on a great hike at Lands End in San Francisco, on New Year's Day.  This was the second year in a row. Officially a New Years Tradition (sorta).

Morgan and I spent an afternoon hiking in big basin state park, it is redwood perfection!

And of course what photo recap would be complete without some pictures of the gorgeous Matisse? Isn't she the most beautiful kitty ever?
