Just looking back at some old photos...

I was browsing through some of my old photos this afternoon and several brought back some great memories:

Isn't this a great looking 1920's era storybook cottage?  This was taken in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California when we were there for our wedding back in 2006.  I love quaint old homes like this, and some day before I retire I want to build one.  The hard part won't be the actual construction, but dealing with the Planning and Zoning bureaucrats and Home Owners Association Nazi's beforehand.

I like to look at this one every year about this time to remind myself what it's like to walk around our neighborhood without sweating.  I know you Yankee-types think I'm crazy, but it was just a couple of inches of snow and the temps were only in the upper 20's, and doggone it, it felt so good to come home after a brisk walk without being drenched in sweat.  Oh well...such is this Texans fate. bride, all dolled up for my daughter's wedding.  Isn't she beautiful?  I truly have some wonderful women in my life. :)  

I've bored you enough.  Time to cruise into the evening.  G'nite all.



  1. S, wth a woman like K at your side, it doesn't matter what your house looks like or where it is :-)

  2. .....or what temperatures you are "suffering"! lol

    That house looks so cosy!

  3. Love the story book house.....K looks terrific!

  4. Nice cottage. Not bad looking for a white chick.


  5. Hello,
    I was looking at pictures of Carmel and found your blog. My fiance and I are thinking to get married there and I am trying to find out if we can have the reception in one of the fairytale cottages... but it seems impossible to get a hold of the owners. I read that you got married in Carmel and I was wondering if you were able to "use" one of those beautiful cottages.
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks so much,
