Driving to San Francisco

On Saturday, Hubby and I drove to San Francisco. Before we left home, I found this cute little praying mantis sitting on the roof of my car. What a funny looking guy!
Anyways, it was a long 6.5 hour drive from LA to SF. I always get excited when we pass by these windmills because it means we are about 1 hour away from SF and they are just so beautiful!
Wind power is not only visually appealing, but also an Eco-friendly source of power!
The long trip to SF was well worth it. We were attending one of my good friends wedding receptions at Jelly's Dance Cafe. She had just gotten married in Cuba and was celebrating her wedding at this club since not all of us were able to make it to Cuba.
I was in awe by their wedding cake at the reception. One of J's friends made this huge wedding cake all by hand in her kitchen! She even has a map of California on one of the cakes, and the map of Cuba on the other (all hand drawn)! And it was my favorite... carrot cake too!
Congrats to J&L, yet another beautiful couple that looks wonderfully happy.
