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
love letter to Erin McLaughlin ]
redacted happy holidays. from my family to yours. john xmas 2011
