Since it's Monday, I thought this shot of my boys might cheer you up and make your Monday a little bit sweeter.  Norman looks so pensive and Newman is just enjoying his life of luxury.  I also wanted to welcome and say hello to my new readers.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I look forward to sharing my coastal adventures and reading about yours.  As of right now, I foresee a weekend trip up the coast.  Is it bad that I am already thinking of Spring Break? 
The new semester starts this week and it will be my last here in Redlands.  A crystal ball would come in handy right about now.  But here's hoping for more blue skies ahead! Are you still filled with that new year energy and motivation?  I am! 
Oh, and if you are looking for a special treat, check out this fun giveaway from Simpledaisy
