Best of May 2012

Hello – how is everyone? Southern California has had two wonderfully weathered days in the past 48 hours. 80 degrees with a slight breeze. I feel mother nature is apologizing for the cold temps that had everyone on “Cold Weather Watch” last week. I hear you giggling Minnesota, ambulance but when surfers head to the beach in full scuba suits due to 32 degree temps, find it has the butterfly effect. All of Orange County was set off balance.

We’re okay now. Until the next artic wave.

Now let’s get caught up with my 2012 year in review. Pause for a moment, how about a recap so far. The pink links can be clicked on to your hearts desire to view previous posts.
