Happy January 2014 Tournament of Roses 🌹

I helped my friend cross an item off her bucket list...
Going back to the Tournament of Roses People!! 

The first time I went was back in 1997...

Nineteen years old and my future wide open in front of me. My Dad would be gone in four months.. And my life would change. What advice would I give to 19 yr old me? First I would say that life wasn't going to be fair.. It's tough. And your tough too! Don't give up.. Believe what you know to be true. Have faith! Not only for things to come but in yourself. Most importantly, don't ever let someone tell you that you can't do it, because you can ❤️

We left early in the morning of New Years Eve Day... I think the same couple ran the same tour I was on "Seniors Trip"

We got to Pasadena  that afternoon and we got ready for our dinner cruise. I was so much fun, we got to see the million dollar homes lit up in the harbor, I love the ocean!! And met some friendly people too ☺️
My Facebook that night reads " Happy New Year!!! Have to turn in early-have a parade to get to. Much love and blessings to all ❤️"

Rise and Shine! "Let's go to a Parade!"

For time purposes, I lumped my best pictures from the parade and after when we got to walk Tournament Park, I hope that was what it was called...I'm really glad I layered it was unusually warm!!

Remember... Dreams Do Come True!

It was so much fun to walk around after!! We were at the end of the parade rout sitting among the proud families of the high school kids that traveled far to come! Unfortunately one of the seniors had got heat exhaustion and had to be hospitalized.. Our tour guides were so kind to go to the hospital to make sure they had all the belongings and food to eat. We all were tired!! But we had a great time!
