My Birthday is tomorrow and I get to spend it doing what I love to do........

Treasure hunting!!

 Temecula is a lovely little town south of where I live, filled with lots of fun places to visit!!

 Just a quick hop on the freeway, if the traffic is not too bad!

Who knows what I might find here?

Perhaps here?

 Or maybe here?

And I KNOW I will find LOTS of things 

Our son Jeffry was so generous to gift us (yes, Jeff is also coming with me) with this little getaway, and even booked us a hotel!!!  I feel really spoiled, really grateful and VERY LOVED!!!  It makes getting one year older just a wee bit easier!!!  Thank you son!!!!

The rain is supposed to stop later today and promises to be much nicer so I hope to take lots of pictures!!  Please stay tuned!!!

Wishing you the special warmth of loved ones~

Happy, happy birthday. Have a wonderful getaway and I hope you find LOTS of treasures to bring home with you.
Happy to hear you are getting rain. We are getting more snow tonight...sigh...enough already. My older son lives in the LA area and from what he says, there is no getting anywhere in CA fast.
Hugs :)

Have a happy, happy day! Looks like a wonderful place to spend some time...and some money! Can't wait to see what comes home with you.
Thanks for the info about the red and green samplers...I didn't know about the Scotland connection but since then I read somewhere else that they are probably Scottish. Mine did come from England, so it's quite possible they were from Scotland originally.
Make lots of memories on your adventure, my friend.
Happy Birthday!
