hello hello!
happy holidays to all and greetings from redlands, california! another year has come and gone and i am so lucky to be close to family, to be in good health and see such beautiful things from my bicycle riding around the countryside.

my life has changed a lot in the past 12 months. i've had a lot of fun, made a lot of memories and cherish the time i've spent with the people i love.

i spent time on and off the bike with wes

i visited with justin and lauren in sacramento shortly after the birth of darling rosie

i bought a 111 year old house and relied on family and friends to get it back into shape

i was lucky enough to spend several months with ben (and hilary)

i went to the channel islands

spent some time in san francisco with my darling little sister

i rode home from san diego with mark

and i adopted the most adorable dog in the world

happy holidays. from my family to yours.
