Our interest in this house proves a real estate adage that I've been told: "Buyers are liars." Originally, we told our agents that we wanted a condo near the beach in a walking neighborhood. Well, this house is none of those things. It's small, built in 1939 though has a modern California look. The selling point is the beautiful 180° view as the house is high up in the hills. If you would like to see photos of the house and view, shoot me an email and I will send you a link.
My second and more recent trip to California just ended on Sunday when I returned from what my daughter referred to as my "hippy retreat" in Santa Barbara. In reality, I went to a seminar called LifeLaunch at The Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara with my good buds from Atlanta, Cloe and Haley. We had an amazing time. Santa Barbara was so lovely; the seminar was very different from anything that I've ever attended and requires a lot more time to explain than I have right now; and I loved spending time with my wonderful friends.

So a little over 2 months into 2012 and I'm happy to say that I have been working on my new year's resolutions - in particular, these trips to California work right into Resolutions # 2, 3, 5 and 8. I review all of the resolutions often and hope to stay on track as the year goes by.
