Marvelous is…

Hey guys!

I hope you all had a marvelous weekend. And if you are in the states, a LONG holiday weekend. Ron and I were off for 4 days, but it went by way too fast. I swear it was just Thursday!

To keep the good vibes of the weekend going into the week, I’m feeling the need for a little marvelous is..

Marvelous is…a full rainbow. I felt like I needed to look for a pot o’ gold at the end.

Marvelous is…two glorious days at two different beaches. The weather was absolutely perfect each day with blue skies for miles, a nice ocean breeze and sand for my kids’ to get in every single crevice possible. I love the beach!

Marvelous is…hiking. We wanted to do a short hike in the afternoon one day, so we headed to Blue Job Mountain. It’s not technical at all but has a great view from the top on a clear day.


Marvelous is…fresh wild fruit. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Mother Lode of wild blueberries perfectly ripe at the summit. If you have never had fresh wild blueberries, you are missing out. I think we ate just as much as we picked. And our blackberry bushes are ripe, too. We are eating good!

Marvelous is…campfires and s’mores. I’m not really a marshmallow fan, but if there’s chocolate and graham crackers involved, it’s all good.

What was marvelous in your weekend?

    1. You are going to be in a prime location for a hike that has a HUGE loot of wild blueberries at the summit. Maybe we could meet up there?!?!

  2. SMOOORRESSS! i am so jealous! I was just saying to steve yesterday that I wish we had smores already, they are amazing. We just committed to eating better for the next month (boooo) but I am sure we can sneak some in somewhere! Glad you enjoyed the weekend, isn’t it nice when you can reflect on it πŸ™‚

    1. Haha – Ron and I said we were committing to better eating for the next month too. The s’mores were a last hurrah! πŸ˜‰

  3. Your four days off sounded really amazing– just perfect- I love all of the things that you mentioned. Sadly we don’t get too many rainbows in SoCal but we need them! I am curious to know what you made with the wild blueberries?– that is so cool!
