Earlier this summer my oldest nephew turned one! It’s been so great to be able to watch him grow from a distance, but getting time to actually interact with him in person is so special. I can’t wait to have little conversations with him soon.
This past February I escaped the blowing snow of Michigan for the warm sun of the Golden Coast. This was my first visit to California and I honestly think I fell for the West Coast life. Everything seemed so laid-back and easygoing. What shocked me most was that people actually waited at a crosswalk if it said “don’t walk” – a far cry from the midwesterner’s hurry to cross the street. Seriously though, I couldn’t get over this!
