Mr and I on vacation in Big Sur Calif. What's not to love about the coast of Calif. Both of our kids are gone for the summer. Our son is on tour of the USA with his band.He is 17. Our daughter is in Tokyo modeling. She is 15. Not sure if we are the really cool parents or the worst parents for letting our kids take on such big adventures. It has been nice being without them, but I'm ready for them to come home. But I will say this, my house has stayed clean. The one thing I hate about summer,(besides the heat in the desert) is there are always dirty dishes in the sink.
