If you're following along on Instagram or Facebook you might have realized by now that we pulled off a big surprise party for my MIL this weekend, which meant keeping our traveling plans mum. 

Yes, that's right: I've been secretly in Califormia since last Wednesday. 


I realized again how much of my social existence is online: not being able to post airplane selfies on Instagram or complain about our prolonged layover on Facebook was itchy. It's been an interesting thing, going back in time almost. And being covert is so unusual for me that it felt like being back in the theater. Fun times, indeed.

Califormia is, as always, beautiful. We're fully enjoying our visit. 

Beauty everywhere, carried within me.
