This little painting is gracing my annual New Year cards. I can never get it together before the holidays, so I don't even bother. But, hey, I am busy baking, ok? Cookies... yum.
I write them when I am in San Diego visiting with the in-laws. I don't think I did a single doodle while I was there.
Besides the relatives, I have two amazing reasons to go there: the beach (In Oregon we have the coast, which is a to-TA-lly different thing.) and this big, bright, yellow thing in the sky, aka the Sun.
They put in a new staircase from the beach up to Torrey Pines. It is always a favorite place to walk. We even managed to find a trail we can't ever remember hiking, which is amazing, because we go there every year. Nick, Kira and I also hiked the Penasquitos Canyon loop. I recommend visiting if you are in the area. It is beautiful, and wilder than you would think for deepest So Cal suburbia.
I hope the new year brings new and wonderful things into your life!
