Ben and other Vacaville Chamber members smiled for the camera outside DeBartolo Jewelers in downtown Vacaville

Ben and I accomplished so much yesterday! We went to Benicia, Vacaville, Fairfield, Vallejo and Lafayette! Today will be much of the same.

Yesterday was the official re-grand openings of DeBartolo Jewelers in downtown Vacaville and Ben and I were fortunate enough to join in the fun. We are so happy to see them reopen after the tragedy! I was able to talk to Louis and his lovely wife and they are just the salt of the earth. We are all so happy for them.

We also were able to attend the Lafayette Mixer at Orchid Nursery on Mt. Diablo Boulevard. What a sight! Orchid Nursery is all decorated for Christmas and Ben and I had so much fun looking at all of their fabulous trees and ornaments. This is one of my favorite times of the year so I was in heaven.

Today we have BIG stretches, feed Ben, put out the garbage and then I’m gone . . .

Ben tried to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas
