This year has FLOWN by and I honestly can't believe it's been this long since I became a Californian. (Well, an honorary one, because no matter where I live I'll always be a Southerner at heart!) I miss home a lot and everyone there, but it has been a wonderful year out here with so many new experiences.
And during this record breaking heat wave back East, I'm pretty darn lucky to live in a place with cool temperatures in the 70s year around! It was actually a bit chilly yesterday... not to brag or anything ;) I heard that the DC area is the "heat epicenter" with the highest heat index in the country. My brother's in DC for a conference, and my hometown where my parents live is 45 minutes from DC in Virginia. Hope y'all are staying inside and cool!
