A Big Bear Weekend

This past weekend I headed to Big Bear Lake with J and my closest friends to celebrate my birthday. It's actually not till this coming weekend but I will be nerding out at Paper Camp then so we pretended I turned 30 a week early. It was so much fun!

J planned it all and let me just say, that guy knows me. He put this Michigan girl in a boat on a lake, complete with friends, drinks, and even fishing! I felt right at home. :]
 Penny girl stole the show of course.
Big Bear Lake is so beautiful. It is surrounded by tree-covered mountains. And I commented on the sky like ten times. It's just so blue and clear with the whitest puffy clouds! Just beautiful.
I felt spoiled the whole weekend. My friends went way beyond, with decor and cake, even a birthday tiara. I'm so thankful to have found great friends in California. My move here didn't start out easy but I finally feel at home, surrounded by people I love.

Next up, I leave Thursday for Paper Camp (I feel so dorky every time I say that) to get my ass all prepared for the National Stationery Show 2015. Yeah you heard me. Big goals in process for JAA. Wish me luck! xo JA
