Last week my little family took a spur-of-the-moment trip to southern California! I about died from all the green there!
Every time I visit this part of the country I wonder why I live in the desert instead of on the coast, then we hit traffic and I remember why. It's awesome to visit, but we're happier in a smaller town for normal life.
This trip had it's fun parts and it's sad parts. We went to visit my husband's grandmother who will not be with us much longer. We were so grateful for the chance to see her one more time and to make some more fun memories. She is the closest thing to a grandmother I have left on this earth so I will be so sad to see her go. She is a giving and sweet person.
