We kicked off the New Year right celebrating the wedding of my best friend Sophie to our new friend Alex. They are now the Jones'. Awesome, right? They had a beautiful wedding in Santa Ynez, Jer and I were so glad we were able to be there and share that special day with them. I was one of the bridesmaids along with our 4 other friends from our tight-knit group from high school.
They had a very nice, traditional Jewish ceremony which I have never been to before.
Another great kick-off to 2012 was the stomach flu that ran through our entire family. Somehow, my mom was able to escape the dreaded bug but my round of it came right after we rang in the new year, just in time for us to leave for our cruise in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Needless to say, that two-hour drive was quite eventful, especially because my sister's turn came just hours after mine started.
I took the rest of that first day on the boat to recover from my flu and then we had a blast with our friends cruisin in Mexico! We went with Jer's company he worked for last summer and is managing for this summer, several of our friends worked with him too so it turned out to be a blast with all of our friends.
Day 5: Snail
We are now home and ready for real life again although our three week holiday was a nice break!
