As you all know, I moved from Southern California to New Hampshire 5 years ago. Each year, I try to return for a few days, but this summer I was lucky enough to go for a whole 2 weeks! JB was deployed & I had no intentions of spending my 25th birthday alone, so in late June I hopped on a plane & spent the next 2 weeks basking in the California sunshine. I spent them eating more Mexican food than I can possibly imagine, drank a stupid amount of Starbucks & belly laughed with my sister & best friend. One of the last nights, I snapped a few pictures of my family in our backyard during an enormous family dinner. Do you remember this nugget? She’s two years old now! Here are my people: makeup-less, frizzy haired, & hilarious. Enjoy!
