Jenner

We decided to take a weekend getaway for a few different reasons. We were celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary, we both had a few stressful weeks at work and it was the last weekend before my surgery. Needless to say, we needed a little break and the Sonoma Coast was the perfect place for the 3 of us (of course, Charlie came too). Follow along on our adventures on Instagram with #chrisandjamieweekend!

Poplar Beach

J for Jamie Blog | Poplar Beach Chris and I both had a day off recently so naturally we looked for a fun place to bring Charlie to. We ended up in Half Moon Bay at Poplar Beach just around sunset. It was amazing because there wasn't a soul in sight! Charlie loves running on the beach so she was pretty darn happy.

We love oysters

J for Jamie Blog | Tomales Bay Weekend On our way home from Tomales Bay, we made a couple stops at The Marshall Store and Hog Island Oyster Company to have fresh oysters. Chris and I both love oysters so we had to try them out. The oysters at both places come directly from the bay so they're fresh as can be. The oysters are one of the main reasons we love going up to Tomales Bay. I love that you can sit outside with a beautiful view of the bay and eat delicious food, it's just heaven!

Tomales Bay Weekend

J for Jamie Blog | Tomales Bay Weekend For Chris' birthday, I thought it would be nice to plan a relaxing weekend away so I chose Tomales Bay. There is a mix of good food and fun outdoorsy things to do in the area so it was perfect for our low-key getaway. We rented an Airbnb, went kayaking, walked around town, visited Cowgirl Creamery (our favorite!) and had dinner at Nick's Cove on the water. We also did some oyster tasting on the way home. It was a lovely weekend with just the two of us and perfect weather. I love Tomales Bay!

Golden State Warriors Parade

J for Jamie Blog | Golden State Warriors Parade If you haven't heard, the Golden State Warriors won the 2015 NBA Championship for the first time since 1975! Chris and I had the honor of representing his family in the Warriors Championship Parade on June 19th in Oakland, California. I have to say it, it was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had and I felt most undeserving of it. We met with all the old Warrior legends, sat on top of a cool convertible in the parade and then got to hang out with every Warriors person ever - including the whole 2015 team. I am so grateful for this opportunity and so happy I could be there with Chris - it's definitely a day that we'll re-live forever in our memories (I mean, look at Chris' smile in the next photo). Go Warriors!

Meet Charlie

J for Jamie Blog | Meet Charlie Chris surprised me with the ultimate rom-com-worthy Valentine's Day present this weekend, a sweet little puppy. We have talked endlessly about getting another dog. About whether or not we were emotionally ready and up for the major responsibility of puppy-hood. I've been hesitant because I don't know if I'll ever fully heal from losing Roxy. We've asked our friends to babysit their dogs which has helped us cope immensely and possibly made us ready for the next step of adopting again. When I finally gave Chris the okay, he tirelessly searched rescue sites for the perfect puppy. I kind of put it in his hands because I couldn't bring myself to start looking. And then, he found her - in Bakersfield with a rescue called H.A.L.T. He had a gut feeling she'd be the one for us so he told me was working and made the 6 hour trip on Valentine's Day to get her. Charlie was abandoned in an orchard with her brothers and sisters so she is really timid with her new surroundings right now. She's unsure of our affection but doesn't reject it so I'm pretty sure she's going to be a little cuddle bug once she's comfortable. She's part Husky, part Shepard, has the softest fur, floppy ears and eyes that will melt your heart.

So there you have it, the first page of a new chapter in our lives. As we continue to cope with the loss of our beloved Roxy, we hope our hearts will begin to heal by pouring our love into another beautiful little being.
