Visiting Carmel

It's been a week away from computers (sort of), cell phones, and home.  Not by choice, but because I had limited cell/internet service.  It was actually kind of nice!

TL and I spent a few days visiting his mom at her home in Carmel, and then I was off for a 3 day high school leadership retreat with my job (amazing, I will share more later).

Both were fabulous.  I love spending time with my MIL {she's fabulous} and my dad went with us to ride his bike and help us move a few things.  I love the ocean.  We also attended a beautiful, intimate wedding - I will share more about that soon!
 {one of my MIL's fave places to eat - it was delicious french food}
 We ate at a little burger joint and I had a Mint Chip shake
 Point Lobos - bird poop island!
 California has a beautiful coast line!
 TL was still very sick with pneumonia, but he made it out for a very short walk!
I love visiting her and hearing the waves as I fall asleep at night!
She's also a great cook and we had some delicious food :)

I can't believe it's already August!  
I hope everyone is having a fabulous week.

I absolutely LOVE Carmel! It was one of the first places in California that I visited, and we go back every few years. It's just a fun, relaxed vibe with so much to do.
Love all these pictures - glad to hear that Tim is on the mend now! So glad that you had time to spend with your MIL. It's great that you two have such a great bond! :)

Sometimes, you just need a few days free of computers, I always feel great after and ready to tackle new things. Which is why I just established a no computer on Saturdays rule.

Jenn said...
