I came across a bunch of photos from my last trip home in July and I wanted to share them. I spent time at my mom’s adorable restaurant that she has spent 12 years perfecting; her cozy bungalow that reminds me of the giant house we could buy for the cost of a down payment here (San Francisco real estate, I shake BOTH of my fists at you!); my oldest, best friend Emily’s parents’ house where I practically grew up. My sister and I a memorable day at the lake with my dad, which sadly I didn’t take any photos of for fear of ruining my camera. You’ll just have to take me word that it was a great day.
Also, my friends have gorgeous children. I love seeing them grow up, although I hate how much of their lives I miss.
I love California, but Missouri will always feel like home.
