LASTING TRANSITIONS

Transitions commence new adventures. Make 'em last…

All I Want is Warm Sunshine

Having returned to record-breaking bone-chilling temperatures in South Korea a few days ago after a 2-week trip visiting family and friends throughout the US, I already yearn for the southern California sun. Nothing describes southern California more simply than warm sunshine, blue skies, large palm trees, and serene beaches. I honestly can’t say that I got enough of the pristine weather and sandy shores before departing, but at least I gained another glimpse into what I dearly miss sometimes and can fully appreciate what many Californians take for granted. Here’s a peek into my old stomping grounds in southern California:
