If I had to pick one place on Earth that gave me peace it would be Stinson Beach. Every time I drive over the hill a feeling of calm comes over me. It is My happy place! We started going there the summer I turned 1 and I had my first birthday there. I learned to walk in the sand on the beach at the end of CalledeResaca. We stayed in the same house for a number of years (I think 8 summers at Linger Longer - the name of the house) and made some amazing friends on that street - they are still a very important part of our lives. Over the years we stayed at other houses and I went back every chance I could. The summer of 2007 we rented a house on CalledeResaca, but not "the" house - just across the street. We rented the same house in 2008, but this year we got to go home! It took some tracking, but I did it. The owner of Linger Longer rents the home out herself and only to people she has rented to before. After a few phone calls I convinced her to give us 8 days. It was an amazing week. My girls slept in the same beds Sophie and I slept in as little girls and not much has changed. We were next door to Patty and that was such a gift. We are all so sad about Peggy's passing, but it was wonderful to be together. My mom did not make it up this year, but Sophie and John were both there for most of the week, and Kathleen came up to be with the girls and I the first 2 nights. We ate Walt's Specials and ice cream from Parkside and visited with Annie at the book store and we played on the beach a lot. Lots of times every day! The weather was beautiful - just a day and a half of clouds all week and that was just fine. We had wonderful neighbors and all the kids played. It was prefect!
Once a year John and Mark do a "Big" race. This year it was a 100 mile race in the Cuyamaca Mountains. It turned into a 50 mile race due to Very Cold weather, but they did great. The girls and I were planning on camping that night, but due to teh cold we headed home early!
Enjoying the camp with Aldo!
Anna keeping warm with Jucle JustinLilly got very tired
Every April we go Strawberry picking with playgroup. We start the afternoon with a yummy lunch at Ruby's and then head to the fields. This year I left Anna with my mom so that Lilly and I could have some quality time! We had so much fun - it is a wonderful tradition.
I am a stay at home mom to 2 beautiful girls - Lilly born 7/7/05 and Anna born 12/9/07. I live in San Diego with my wonderful husband John and my girls. I also have a small business making hair clips with a dear friend - www.theclipfairy.etsy.com. I also recently became a rep for Silpada Jewelry - www.mysilpada.com/zoe.feher
