Cozy New York Winter aka Dreaming of California

I am not a lover of the cold and gosh its been cold in NYC lately. In fact I always thought I would move away to some warm sunny state and stay there forever. And yet the universe has a funny way of placing you sometimes. I had always planned on going to graduate school in Florida and staying there, but at the last minute I got cold feet and decided to stay in New Jersey for graduate school in order to forgo massive student loans. So I stayed and wound up meeting my husband in October of that year. He definitely changed my course but I would not change a thing.

Almost every night for the past week I have dreamed of California. I have only been there once on our honeymoon almost two years ago but it has haunted me ever since.  I really hope to get back this year. I need their sunshine. Here are some pictures I recently stumbled upon from the trip.

We started in San Francisco

 So Gorgeous.
Took A Ride Down the Pacific Coast Highway.
Stopped in Yosemite where I left a piece of my soul in the redwoods.

Checked out Disneyland.

Saw some Los Angeles.

and Santa Monica.
From there we ventured off to the desert.
Palms for days.

Beautiful Cactus at Joshua Tree National Park

Finally relaxed for a few days in Palm Springs, before finding our way back home.

 I couldn't believe the number of hummingbirds at this magical place.

 It was the trip I never wanted to end.
And I still dream of going back to California. Perhaps even moving there one day.
Where have your dreams been taking you lately? - megan
