Happy Turkey Day everyone! It's been a bumpy world this past few months, and I'm sure we all have something to be thankful for. A job, a family, a roof over our heads...these are just a couple of things I'm thankful for this year. The holiday season is my absolute favorite...I can't wait to see the fun decorations on the homes in the neighborhood I drive through to get to work everyday. Time for movies and pumpkin pie - goodnight!
I went out of town for less than 36 hours and all hell broke loose in Southern California. I took a crazy pic (which I'll post tomorrow) while I was driving up the 405 at 8:30am on Saturday morning, driving into the billowing smoke. I-5 was shut down along with basically every other major freeway in Southern California this weekend (14, 118, 210, 57, 91...) as fires exploded around the southland. It took me 8 1/2 hours to get to the bay area (for perspective, it only took me 5 hours and 15 mins to get home once the 5 reopened). So many homes lost. I hope everyone is safe!
I have been so busy with life this week...but took pause tonight at the gym when I got news that one of my two homes away from home - my beautiful Santa Barbara - is on fire. I was just there last weekend! Thoughts and prayers with my friends who are still local there!
I hope everyone had a spooky and fun Halloween! I got to check out a fabulous 80s cover band at a bar in Long Beach...then headed to a country bar that reminded me a bit too much of the Brandin' Iron and my high school days. Dancing to Thriller with a bunch of rednecks in cowboy boots? So hilarious!
I'm loving the fall weather that started this weekend too. Thunderstorms and rain, and now it's breezy and cold in LA! I think soup for lunch and hot chocolate is definitely in order. If I haven't said it enough...I love fall!
