Run, Kim, Run. Truly. I feel like my trip to California allowed me to do it all.....to see it all, just like Forrest. It was without a question, the best trip I have ever been on.
California has a very special place in my heart ♥.
I love everything, EVERYTHING about it including:
- The adorable little beach towns....
|Seal Beach was only a quick drive from our hotel |
and we spent two beautiful days there.
You will see it was a little cool for swimming (yikes!), but
that did not deter us from taking our shoes off
and enjoying the sand between our toes.
- Hopes of seeing famous celebrities....
- A chance to experience a first class, FUN family vacation...
- Historic Buildings are Valued and Reinvented
|Even found a bike at the Packing House. |
This sealed the deal for me.
I will love The Packing House FOREVER.
- Host to CHA - A Paper Lover's Dream Come TRUE
Since this was the last year (after a 10 year stint) CHA was calling The Anaheim Convention Centre home, I HAD to experience it first hand. And it was as wonderful as ever. The amount of effort that goes into the booths and the samples is mind boggling. The best of the best is there to represent themselves and it definitely showed. I was wowed at every turn.
You saw a few of my pics from previous posts, but here are a few more.
Of course I was drawn to the rubber stamp booths and samples. I wish these cards showed up better but are these not incredible? Penny Black watercolour-style cards above were so elegant and dreamy.
You can always count on a good laugh at Art Impression's booth. This is an oldie (no offence!) but certainly a goodie.
Carpe Diem? Of course I will!!
- You feel like a kid in California!
|I think my smile with Pluto says it all. |
I am recharged and ready to rock and roll this year!
|I adore how natural Jules looks here. California is one of her happy places.|
|It was amazing how Coulter was all business at the beach. |
He would not rest until his fort was complete.
So yep....those are surfers in the background. Cool....dude.
PS....And if you ever get the chance to visit California....do it!! I know a girl who would be eager to show you the sites. ♥
