Tell YOU something YOU don’t know! Right? It is just tough…real life..ugh….

forgive me if it takes me a few days to shake the sand out of my shoes…get back into my groove..but ahhhhh…..I miss the pace…the easy easy pace. Even though we ran here and there and everywhere up the coast of California…it was a heavenly pace…

……and just the 5 of us together like we have not been in years! Day in and Day out.

Thank goodness there were GYMs in every place we stayed!

Weather-wise and I know people always say this, but the weather in California was what I imagine the weather in my personal Heaven to be like. Right around 65-75 every single day…soft breezes with NO HUMIDITY…Phoebe turned to me day 6 and said “MOM My hair (normally wavy and with a mind of it’s own) is GREAT in California!

PHOEBE AND HER WONDERFUL CALIFORNIA HAIR!

  1. We visited San Diego in June. Coming from Maryland, the mild temps and low humidity in CA were wonderful.
    Like your daughter, my curly hair was controllable all week. Loved it there! If all my friends and family would go too, I’d relocate! Loved the bungalows on Coronado island.

  2. What about your studio? You’ve made a beautiful home for your family, how about your space? And let me emphasize BEAUTIFUL!

  3. So glad to see you made it to my hometown of San Diego. Never thought about the hair but that is just one more reason it is “America’s finest city”. Would love to see more of your delightful paintings and even maybe where they end up.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful vacation! I’m jealous as we haven’t been on a vacation in over 5 years!! Thankfully living here kinda feels like being on vacation, so that helps but I do miss long road trips!
    Happy belated birthday to you too!
