Our mothers were sisters and like our mothers, we cousins, feel like sisters.
This was a much needed restorative day. A day for us to hold each other close and to celebrate and toast our cousin "Jan". Laguna Beach holds a special place in the hearts of all our family. It was a natural place for us to meet up for lunch.
Being by the beautiful blue Pacific ocean at Hotel Laguna was the perfect choice. It was a very happy time for us to be together.
One of the prettiest patio views in all Laguna.
Mojitos, Mimosas and Bloody Mary's are in order
Let's not forget our dessert. Mmmm Pineapple upside down cake, oh yeah!
Some time to stroll on the beach
Our very own Laguna Beach Selfie!
My brother in law Vicente wrote this about today : "Reassessing the meaningful relationships, the relationships that represent lives co-written by family ties. Should be a time of celebration of Jan's life and work, and also a restorative meeting for all attending. Much love to Pati and all of you, cousins."
