Weekend Getaway...

I met Anthony in Los Angeles for one final attempt at house hunting. We then drove north to Santa Barbara to catch a Zac Brown Band concert, which was the best show I've ever seen. The next day we celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary by taking wine tour, and then on our way back to the airport and one last house to check out, we made a pit stop in Simi Valley to tour the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It's a good thing we will have visitors so we have a good reason to go back...we ran out of time and left many of the exhibits unseen. Some of my favorites, other than the amazing views, were the love letters he wrote to Nancy and his collection of hand written quotes, all on index cards and carefully cataloged in of all things, a plain old photo album. We also toured his Air Force One, which was decommissioned after Reagan's presidency and replaced by a Boeing 747 to better accommodate the needs of the Presidential entourage. All told, it was one of those experiences that makes you so very proud of our country.
