I still have one more day of California photos to post but, to tell you the truth, if I were a cartoon character, I’d be Doug from Up. To say I’m easily distracted is an understatement.
I finished How to be a Woman and just had to tell you about it, California photos completely forgotten! I know what you’re thinking, how could I possibly forget the mountains, I’ve only been going on and on about them on Instagram for weeks now!
That’s what a good book does to me though. I lose thought of everything else and I just have to talk about it with someone!
So, back to California . . .
On my last day, I woke up to a steady pitter-patter of rain against the window. Pajamas still on, I rolled out of bed and into a big squishy armchair by the crackling fire.
We had a lazy morning, not needing to talk but thoroughly enjoying each others company as we opened the windows to the rain, snuggled up by the fire.
After coffee, we had a long, drawn out breakfast of smoothies, eggs, homemade bread and pancakes.
All under the watchful supervision of Luna, who took to stealing freshly laundered clothes and dragging them onto the wet grass, at this point.
When we finished breakfast, the rain had stopped and the sky was a dazzling blue, just waiting to be admired.
You know those moments of complete contentment? There’s nothing like it and for me, I felt that, standing high above the city, surrounded by mountains and standing next to one of the best people in my life.
When I had my fill, we headed back for a shower and a late lunch before I hopped on a plane home.
When I moved from Chicago, I promised myself I would see more of the world. Something that’s still important to me but now, I want to revise that promise.
Spending the time seeing the world is not as important as who you spend the time with.
What really makes your time traveling spectacular is the people you spend that time with.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite travel buddy? Do you care more about the designation or who you share it with?
