Weekend Outing.

Hope everyone had a fun heart day (or single’s awareness day)! I had a blast on our road trip along the coast of California. We headed down towards San Simeon, home of Hearst Castle. Surprisingly, the weather was not monstrous as predicted by the forecast; it was mostly blue skies with patches of clouds every now and then, which worked for us because we got to explore the area. We then drove up Highway 1, which runs along the coast of California, and just soaked in the breathtaking scenery. It seemed like forever to get back up to Monterey, but it was totally worth it. The views, as always, are stunning.

The sets were breaking BIG in San Simeon! Wahoo!

It was a great day to visit San Simeon.

This picture just makes me "WOW!" I love the colors.

Maui loves to explore beaches. She loves sand.

"Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I love beaches!"

She loves to follow Gloria around everywhere.

Perhaps the sun was too hot for me, and he needed to cool down.

I really needed that time to see the ocean. Every time I spend time at the ocean, it makes me want to appreciate my life. Yeah, I have breakdowns and panic attacks every now and then, but when I see the Earth at its finest like this, I feel content.

Pink Sketches released their latest sketch. This one involves circles, so make sure to check it out! You don’t want to miss out on this one. I made a layout about my infamous orange tabby.

Also, Kelli is still looking to add to the Pink Sketches DT. To get more information, please visit Pink Sketches! We’d love for you to join us!

…and here was just a layout I made for fun about Khiara getting over her fear of dogs:

Lastly, the winner to the last RAK, when picked with the random generator, is… COMMENT #9.

Loving both the new photos and the layouts, especially that eye one. What a great interpretation of your eye. I feel nervous thinking about bills and money issues.

Please email me at redoaklines@gmail.com, and I’ll send you out a package of goodies to play with.

Happy Sunday to everyone,


ps – thanks jennie for coming to hang out with us again on friday. i appreciate all of your support. ::hugs::
