Today, exactly two years ago, three of my favorite people arrived in LA for a fantastic 3,5 weeks-vacation.
It truly feels like it was just a few weeks ago, but it has been two whole freakin’ years. Unbelievable. I love to think back to the wonderful time that we spent together. It was shortly before I started my job back up in Northern California and a perfect ending to my time of unemployment :)
With all honesty, I can say that this trip was probably one of the best times I ever had. I am not even kidding (even though I’ve had quite some good other times).
I might repeat myself (shut up!) if I say that I am one of the very rare creatures that never gets enough of their family. I mean, never ever. You could lock me in a single room with them for a week and we wouldn’t be scratching each others eyes out. I don’t know how many people can actually, honestly say that.
My parents had planned to come and visit this summer again, as their birthday gift to themselves (they both turn 60 this fall). A stupid unexpected bill crushed their dream and much sadder than I am for myself, I am for my parents who had really been looking forward to this trip. We had such a fantastic time together the last time they were here and we would have very much liked to repeat it.
For now, all we can do is reminisce…
