oh how

i love you


michael and i spent last week in california.  it was my first time to the west coast, and i fell head over heels in love.  i always thought that the south was the friendliest place there was.  trips to new york and europe definitely made me think that was correct, and visitors to the south sure made me think we were the nicest people to exist.  incorrect my friend– california is the friendliest place on earth (that i have been to) everyone is so laid back and casual and nice as can be.  we had such a great time.  i was able to have dinner with some old friends, and i made new friends from my old friends.  i took over 500 pictures on my iphone alone so i will be doing a post for each adventure.

on the beach in charleston

i think michael and i might go down to charleston for memorial day weekend. it is necessary to be in/on/around water on this weekend. we do not have a boat so the lake does not seem like too much fun. a pool, no thanks. so we are only left with one option, the beach. the closest one? charleston. how convenient. makes me sad thinking we lived there last summer. the beach was a five minute drive. now only 3 1/2 hours. awesome.
