California Dreaming, My Ass...

It has been raining for five days now in California. All of California. Not just a little cloudy with some drizzle. Downpours. Cliffs sliding into oceans. Thunder. Lightening. Gale-force winds. Trees falling on houses (not ours, thankfully. Yet). Highways closed because of flooding. Since Monday. (And yes I realize that I am a whiny bitch about it because really, it's just rain. Not blizzards or tornados or hurricanes and certainly not life-shattering earthquakes, like the people of Haiti are struggling to recover from right now. So I get that it's self-indulgent and bratty to boo-hoo). Rather than harp further on all the reasons I'm a cranky, cabin-fevered pout-head, I will focus on my happy place.

My happy place? Here:

Maui sunset

The road to Hana

waterfall at the Blue Pool on the road to Hana


Also? I want my long hair back. And my single chin.

Sunset on Waikiki beach, Honolulu

Diamond Head, Waikiki beach, Honolulu

Oh, frosty drinks at the barefoot bar. How I miss you.

I'm ready for the rain to stop too! We pay too much to live in CA to deal with 5 days straight downpouring haha.

I think this is a cry for help. Your hard-working going-to-London-for-10-days husband needs to book you a trip to the Islands. It's not a terribly long flight from SF and you deserve a vacation!
