~Happy New Year and Simple & Sweet Fridays #96~

Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!
I wanted to share with you some photos I took when we were up in San Francisco. The city was beautiful during the holidays.
~Carly and I~
~The Fairmont~

~Mark Hopkins~
The beautiful Bay Bridge.
When we came home to San Diego, the weather was 75 degrees.
The kids wanted to go to the beach.
These photos were taken at Coronado.
I had to show you these beautiful sandcastles!

~The Hotel Del Coronado~
Loved the Happy New Year Sandcastle!
Our son, Scott, took this photo on New Year's Eve!
We had a wonderful holiday with the kids home!

I want to thank all my wonderful blogging friends for all their support this past year.
We have all been through different challenges and have had strength from each other to surpass them.
I am looking forward to a New Year and seeing all your inspirational blogs. The talent everyone has always amazes me.
You are the best!!!

    Your trip to San Francisco looks like so much fun. My godmother lives in Santa Barbara, and I've only seen her that one time in my life, the day she baptized me! It has always been a dream of mine to visit beautiful California, for many reasons, and your gorgeous photos just remind me of its magic, once again!

  17. I love SFO its always so beautiful and exciting. The Mark Hopkins is one of my favorite hotels. I made it as far as Los Gatos to spend Christmas with my son and granddaughter.
    So glad that you had a wonderful time with your children.
    The pictures are stunning.

  18. Gorgeous SF photos! They are all great, but I especially love the one of the Bay Bridge. Happy New Year!

  19. I've never been to San Francisco and it was such a treat to see pictures of it at night. And the beach in San Diego!! My sons lived there for two years and we visited. We only went to the beach one time and it was near La Jolla. I most enjoyed all the flowering plants, shrubs and trees and fragrances from them that were new to me!!

    So happy you enjoyed the holidays with your kids. Wishing all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year (albeit a little late!!).
