~Life Is Good~

Good morning!! I hope everyone is having a great day/week/month! 🙂 🙂 It has been pretty crazy in California lately with all the fires, so scary and sad! A few days last week you couldn’t even go outside without a mask. Ashes were falling from the sky, it was horrible. I did pack up some important things JUST IN CASE. One of the fires could have easily turned in our direction, but the awesome firefighters stopped it. I just feel so bad for the people losing their homes, businesses and of course their animals as well. 🙁 Every day we have is such a blessing, you just never know what tomorrow will bring. I always say live life to the fullest while you can!!! Buzz and I just got back from a little trip to Arizona. It was so much fun!!! We hung out with friends and spent time with family too. I miss them a lot!! It was a bitter sweet trip, I have never felt happy and sad at the same time. Very strange feeling!! My house sold and the new buyers will be moving in soon. We have so many great memories there…I will never forget!!! It’s time to make new ones in California which I think we are doing a great job at already. 🙂 🙂 After spending some time there I have NO doubt in my mind we made the right decision to move. I absolutely LOVE Arizona, the state is amazing and has always held a special place in my heart! I can’t say I won’t ever move back because I honestly don’t know where I will be in 1 year…2 years or more. I am just enjoying the journey that I am on!! 🙂 My parents are coming for a visit in January so I am planning all sorts of fun things to do. Whew CA has a lot to see …that’s for sure!! I really feel happy that Buzz and I made the move, you can’t grow without change. 😉 And it does help that we moved with great peeps! Surround yourself with good people in life…that is so very important! I don’t do negative or drama!!

Buzz and I took a few days off and went to Big Bear for the first time. We both loved it….we enjoyed the friendliness of the little town and not to mention it is sooooo pretty! You all know I love the mountains…counting down the days that I can live in my cabin tucked in the woods. 🙂 🙂 It was cold, but no snow yet. I think we will get a big group of friends to go skiing this winter.

So is everyone ready for Christmas? Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends!! It’s such a beautiful time of the year! It looks like Fall here…I guess it still is Fall officially. It isn’t winter until the 21st. All the leaves are falling from the trees, I missed that in Arizona. It pretty much looks the same all year except for the cactus and flowers that bloom. I wonder if I will have seasonal allergies here? Hmmm time will tell. Time will tell a lot ….I’m excited to see where this path takes me. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Here are a few photos I have taken lately. 🙂 Hope everyone that is reading this is having a fabulous day so far!! I will write more soon!

Kisses,
Rach

Enjoying the holidays?

Good afternoon everyone!! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!! Mine was a lot of fun, we cooked our first turkey ever. Buzz and I have never had to cook the turkey because my mom always does…and I didn’t see my family this year. It was a little strange, but I had a lot of laughs with friends. 🙂 We had some help with the turkey from people who actually knew what they were doing. hehe! It was so yum, the best one I have ever had. We went to a party Thanksgiving night…yet more fun! I got to hang out with Jessica Jaymes…which I haven’t seen in years. 😉 I have been enjoying some time out lately. I went to the AVN party and also XBIZ… I had an awesome birthday too. Buzz and I went to a winery for some delicious food and of course wine. I spent time with Tiffany Brookes, love her. 😉 Yesterday was black Friday and I didn’t leave the house. No thanks! I snuggled up in bed with my fur babies and watched Netflix. I love days like that. Today I am chopping off my to-do list and it’s pretty BIG!!! I love the holiday season!!! I left my Christmas tree in Arizona so I think this year I will buy a real one. I can’t believe November is almost over. Where does the time go? I will write again soon!! Have a fab weekend! 🙂 🙂

Kisses,
Rach

Thank You Veterans!

Good morning! I woke up early this morning and feeling GREAT! It’s going to be a productive day…lots to do! It’s Veterans Day so of course I want to say thank you to the brave men and women who have and still do protect and defend our country. True heroes!

Buzz and I went to Santa Barbara to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. We had a blast touring wineries…and a wine buzzzzzz at noon is kind of fun! 😉 We shopped, ate some amazing food and of course drank! hehe! The AZ Cardinals were playing in one of the sports bars so of course I had to cheer them on. I will always be a fan of my AZ Cards. I would love to go watch a Rams game this season. We didn’t get to hike this trip, but next time. I really like Santa Barbara…it has a small town feel…very peaceful and comforting. I will for sure go back! 🙂

My birthday is in 10 days to be exact. I am still not sure what I want to do. ?? So much to see and do that I don’t know where to start.????

Thanksgiving is right around the corner as well. My favorite holiday!!! We are in the planning stages now…I have to admit it will be strange to celebrate without my family. The first Thanksgiving in …hmmm I don’t know how many years. A LONG TIME! However I have great people in my life to celebrate with. I am so blessed and thankful for all of them!! Family is not always blood!!

See I told you I would post soon! 😉 I hope you all have a great weekend and I will be in touch!

Kisses,
Rach

November already????

Where do I start? Yikes..I didn’t realize it’s been so long since I posted. So sorry…life is just so busy now. So much going on all the time!!! I should say life is so different. I guess if you are going to change things…might as well jump in full force and change everything at once. Ha! I hate change…so I must say this move has been a bit hard on me at times. All the comforts I knew are gone! Making a new life here will take time…I am really trying to embrace all this change. 🙂 🙂 I am a happy person so I realize it’s not where you live that makes you happy…happiness comes from inside. I love love love the weather here, it’s so nice sitting around the heater at night and sleeping with the windows open. I love snuggling up!! I can FINALLY wear my cute winter clothes and boots that I could not wear in AZ much. I know…it’s a girl thing. 😉 Yesterday was my 20th Year Anniversary. I can’t believe it….seriously where does the time go ???  Buzz and I have been together for 25 years. Crazzzzzy!! It really is a wonderful thing to have found someone that truly makes me happy. He loves me for me…flaws and all. I sit here and try to imagine where we will be in another 20 years. Hmmm, the journey will be awesome, I have no doubt.

The holiday season is here! I went to a fun Halloween party in Hollywood, I never dress up so it was a good time. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and so is my 49th birthday. Did I say 49? Omg! 😉

Buzz and I have been trying new restaurants which is kind of fun really. It’s like we are on vacation sometimes. Speaking of vacations we are heading to Santa Barbara soon to go tour some wineries. Can’t wait! We will be making a trip back to AZ as soon as our house closes. It’s supposed to in Dec, fingers crossed! 🙂

We joined a new gym and it’s amazing. It is comparable to the one in Arizona …of course double the price. Damn stuff is so expensive here. One of my complaints …along with the traffic. I suppose there are good and bad things about every city.

Well I must go now, a busy busy Thursday. I will try and write more often, K? I hope you all have a fabulous day! Here are a few pics I have taken recently. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Kisses,
Rach

Happy Friday

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday! I am getting some work done and then off to do a little shopping later. 🙂 There are so many malls here, I don’t know where to start. lol! Life has been busy for me …sorry I am not writing as much as I want to. I am hoping things normalize and slow down a bit. Moving to another state is a lot of work, not only for personal life, but business life too. Whew! I need a vacation! I do have some fun things planned coming soon…Buzz’s birthday is this month, our 20th Anniversary is Nov 1st and then my birthday. Wow, time flies! Just think Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it.

I had my first star sighting the other day when I was in Venice. I saw Stephen Baldwin…he was laughing taking pics. Venice is such a cool place. We shopped, had lunch and walked the beach. It was such a beautiful day. We also went to Malibu this week and went hiking. We took Mia and she had a blast! We went to a yummy Mexican restaurant and enjoyed delicious food and margaritas. I love Malibu! I can’t wait for life to slow a bit so I can get out and see more of what CA has to offer. 🙂 🙂

I am off now…I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Just remember life is short so get out and enjoy it as much as you can!!! So terribly sad what happened in Las Vegas. This world is a crazy place with so many nuts! Be safe everyone!

Kisses,
Rach

Good Morning! :)

Hey hey ….good morning everyone! 🙂 It’s a beautiful morning in CA! I have my office windows open soaking it all up. I was out yesterday and it was 93 degrees! Yikes! It actually felt hotter because of the humidity. Everyone is saying I brought the heat from AZ with me. hehe! 😉 At least it is cooling down in the 80’s and 70’s now. Yay! My kind of weather. I can definitely see why people want to live here. It’s gorgeous and there is so much to see and do. We have been getting out a little bit more to explore. I met up with friends on Sunday for brunch and we went to an amazing restaurant with such a pretty view. I love that kind of thing! 🙂 It’s the small things that make me happy! Life is too short.

I will write more soon, I have a really busy day ahead! Have a fab Tuesday!

Kisses,
Rach
