Considering temperatures have been in the mid-twenties the past two days in NYC, it feels like these photos were taken months ago. However, in reality, it’s been less than a week since I was in California!
Although I love having adventures—traveling to new places and seeing new things—there is nothing I find more relaxing than going back home to California for vacation. Being back is like letting out a huge sigh of relief. I get to see my family, savor the nice weather, and enjoy a more relaxed pace than the go-go-go I’ve become accustomed to in the city.
One of my instagram friends posted something this past week on #ThrowBackThursday that really resonated with me, “Sometimes to realize where you’re going, you have to take a look back at where you have been.”
I may be “such a New Yorker” to many, but I will always be a Californian at heart. The older I get, the more and more I appreciate going home to the place I grew up. And every time I come back to New York, I feel energized, recharged and full of creative ideas.
Have a great week!
