California Dreaming

Born and raised on the East Coast, I was lucky to be able to travel to lots of different countries with my parents when I was growing up. Funny enough, I had never been to California till this month!! Kind of an epic voyage for me. I have always been one that fits in by the sea and soaking up the sun so my excitement for a California adventure was ENORMOUS.

So I started in Los Angeles taking in a little bit of the glitz and glam of Hollywood. It’s so funny being in a place you recognize from so so many movies. I was definitely in tourist mode with my head to the sky taking in every palm tree I walked by. I was also excited to shed my winter layers for my favorite lightweight camo jacket. One of my favorite parts of this day was the sunset. I mean, WOW. Happy I was able to catch it. California, I have definitely fallen in love with you. Stay tuned for more updates from my trip to Cali!

    Azu - Welcome to the jungle! Glad you like it here. Although…Southern Cali is a bit different than Northern (where I live). Regardless, it’s a beautiful state. Can’t wait to see more of those pictures. Let me know if you ever want to visit the good ol’ Napa Valley. I’ll give you a list of TONS of great places to wine and dine.

    PS. Your pics with the clouds and sunset in the background…AMAZING! I love your outfit too 🙂
