What were you doing a year ago?
Good morning and happy Monday! Is anyone else a weirdo who loves Mondays?
I worked all weekend, Saturday was a perfect sunny & 75, then Sunday was foggy & 58. Welcome to summer at the beach. Ha!
Lately I’ve been thinking about how much our lives have changed in the last year and thought it would be fun to take a look back. Another reason why blogging is so much fun!
Here is what I was up to a year ago:
Mike and I were living in Mountain View. Lu was spending summer vacation with us. I wasn’t working so I had a lot of time to hang with my little sidekick and go for runs around the Google Headquarters.
We hit up the lake and did SUP for a day. That was a blast, though it left me feeling a little motion sick for 2 days after. #worthit
I shared a cold Asian Chicken pasta salad recipe. One of the few things I can actually make.
We took Lu to Great America for the first time. Mike rode all the crazy rides with her while sat under the shade trees drinking coffee.
Hiking our favorite trails in the Bay Area, hoping for no snake sightings.
We went to Sunset Magazines celebration weekend. If you are ever in the Menlo Park area, hit this event up. They open their corporate office up to the public to walk through the test kitchen, garden, living room. There are also a lot of home and garden vendors, wine + beer. We planned to go back this year, but then the whole broken runner thing happened, but next year we will be back!
I picked up the Lu for summer buttcation and did a virtual tree sitting when I heard grandma was going to cut the family tree down. Let’s just say when grandma makes up her mind, that is that.
At the end of June last year, Mike accepted a transfer with his job to Monterey. We absolutely LOVE it here. I still ask him every day “we’re not moving again for a looooong time, right cowboy?” He always says I have 17 years left with my company and I’m going to do them all right here.
Fill me in, what were you doing a year ago?
What are you up to now?
