I had never even been to central California before this week, but I felt so at home there. The beautiful weather, the nice people, the restaurants, the farmland, the fields, the beaches, and the hills....the hills were my favorite part.
I regret not taking more photos, but I made a last-ditch effort by taking some quick shots with my phone while driving through "fields of gold" [circa Santa Maria, I think] on our way home. It was so beautiful, I felt like I was dreaming.
**Transitioning out of vacation-mode is a little tricky sometimes, but having the Christmas season here [already!?] seems to be making it a lot easier. Happy Friday!
