California Dreaming


Pictures taken by me

Sometimes I feel like I am too busy with my life here in Philly to really stop and miss California. But really, deep down inside, I know that I really do miss this place all the way on the other side of the country. It's where I was born. It's where I was raised. It will always be dear to my heart. I miss it so much that I already have my plane ticket booked for December. I'm going home for a week to spend time with my family and friends during Christmas. I am too excited for words! I haven't been in California since the beginning of May. It's about time I look forward to endless miles of highways, outdoor shopping centers, bike rides on the boardwalk, summer in December weather, and those jaw droppingly stunning sunsets. Even if it's just for a little while. California's slow pace and the peaceful parts of my sleepy suburban town in the valley is going to be a nice little break from my hectic life here on the east coast. See you soon Cali. It's been too long.

Where are you from in California? I'm from San Diego and I miss it sooo much! I was there last weekend for a surfing trip with a couple of girlfriends and it's so depressing; I'm literally dreaming about it.
