be of good cheer, gelato is near
i really do love utah...but i miss the warmth of california...especially during the winter. it was so nice being able to go home for the weekend. i'm getting ready for a WEDDING and i actually went back for my bridal shower. (post to come!) of course, i couldn't resist going to the beach. now, there are a ton of beaches that i love to go to for different reasons. for instance, if i just want to be a tourist for a day, i like to go to laguna. there are so many fun art galleries and cute little shops to look at. my personal favorite place to visit is the gelato shop. my friend and i used to go there after school sometimes, when we were craving a yummy treat.
i also missed my sister a looooooot. it's so fun cruising the streets, taking pictures and laughing about nothing. growing up, i thought four years was the biggest gap ever but now age is just a number and she's seriously one of my best friends. she's so cute and hilarious. our family's group message keeps me laughing and makes me feel like i'm at home, thanks to my sister’s texts haha. she’s also is the biggest example to me. she won't tell me, but my dad will let me know how impressed he is that she wakes up early every morning, to go to seminary before school and loves it! she is a good example to those around her and has a special light about her that makes everyone feel comfortable. i just adore her!
