four lovely women...

My four favorite women live around the country and every Monday they send me a snapshot from their little corner of this wonderful world. This is what's going on with them...

Seattle, WA. - my daughter.
"My friends bartending at Law Revue: The Law School Talent Show that I organized"


Sedona, AZ. - my mother.
"We woke to more snow here in the high desert yesterday."

 
Aliso Viejo, CA. - my friend.
  "View from the cottage we stayed in at Crystal Cove last week"

 
St. Augustine, FL. - my cousin.
"February by the sea"


This is the end of the first year of four lovely women posts - can hardly believe that.  I'm going to give the gals a break for this next year and we'll only be checking in with them once a month from now on.

The winner of the "I'm still cleaning out my craft closet" Vera Bradley purse giveaway is Koralee from Bluebird Notes - Congratulations!

Mmmm - law school talent show - sounds interesting. I think your daughter had the most fun but my vote goes to your cousin - looking forward to that weather. And congratulations to Koralee.

Happy Monday! It has been such doing the photos for the last year - can't even believe it has been a whole year!
What a cool idea you had there MJM!
Love that snow - so lovely to look at.
Great view from the cabin - looks like fun Pam.
Ahhh yes - February and at the beach soaking in the rays - that was good for the soul (for all involved!)
Have a lovely week everyone!

I do love this Monday post but will be looking forward to your new one.

One of the last places I went to before I had to move from Laguna was Crystal Cove.
I use to love walking the beach around there. My favorite part of The Pacific Coast Hwy was just up the road a bit where the pelicans fly the thermal so close to the road you could almost reach out and touch them.

Wonderful post today.

cheers, parsnip

Claire Kiefer said...

I was just recently eyeing the cottages on Crystal Cove and thinking about how wonderful they'd be to rent for a week! I visited some friends in Orange County a couple weeks ago, and we had lunch at The Beachcomber, which is right at Crystal Cove. It's so pretty & peaceful there!

Mo Pie, Please said...

Such great stories they tell in one single photograph! So jealous of February by the sea!
