Santa Monica

On Saturday, I had the privilege of picking up an old friend from LAX and taking him and his girlfriend over to Santa Monica while they had a 9 hour layover before headed to Bali. I am so happy that I was off this weekend so that I was able to see him. Our moms were very close friends, his mom even came down from Canada before my mom passed to help sort her things and say goodbye. We used to go to Canada every summer and spend time with their family on the lake. Those are memories I will never forget. 
After I got them from LAX, we headed to 3rd Street in Santa Monica and walked the long street of shops. We had dinner at Yankee Doodle and I had fun showing his girlfriend stores they don't have up in Canada. Like Forever 21 :)
We then headed over to the pier and walked around before it was time to head back to the airport. 

Yesterday we had a great Sunday, relaxing and visited some friends. Got the ring cleaned again, its amazing how much prettier it is after. 
Happy Monday!
