Our trip to California was a complete success,
the only downside was we couldn't be there longer.
The above photos are some of my favorite moments.
Stephen was MORE then impressed with the states,
and fell pretty hard for California.
I made sure to show him only the prettiest places,
avoiding any and all locations where the crazies hang out..
He really loved the hospitality of southern Californians..
their laid back, lax, and general easy going nature..
the way they wanted to really get to know him..
know his story,
and take the time to make him feel welcome and at home.
Strangers were also kind,
and of course, the food service..i mean, it is a force to reckoned with..
the quality of food, portion size, and customer service at restaurants in the US is obviously the best in the world, and S really took to its charm and finally understands why all i talk about is how much i miss US food.
The question EVERYONE is asking, is will we move back to the states?
Will we move back to LA?
it is not currently on our radar.
But there are other places in california to live ;)
We do have some things in the works and if all goes as planned we will be settling in the USA summer/fall of next year (2013).
And we will be back again for the month of December!!
(clearly i'm still thinking i'm in LA)
