and yesterday we had christmas!!! it felt just like christmas! nice breakfast, exchanged gifts slowly. my parents so generously gave me such thoughtful, timeless gifts. some highlights : small pink pearl earrings, a seafoam lace dress, a canon 60D!!!!, the most beautiful purse from bali ELF on etsy, herkimer diamond earrings from gather jewelry on etsy, and other small sentiments. i am SO SO lucky! ahhhh!!!!!
when i get back to california i know i will feel totally refreshed and renewed. i've decided i'm going to come visit connecticut once every 3 months, for every season. why not?! the flight is not that bad, and i need to have this time to reconnect with people who have known me my whole life. i know as i spend more time in cali i will develop deeper bonds with people, but there is nothing like going back to your roots.
i'm here until thursday morning, so today i'm gonna keep on living it up! namaste!
