My first time in Oregon with Beaver State native Grant Edward was a dream and half; he's dreamy and so is the state so it was a win-win situation. I won't go too into detail here, but you can expect fun tidbits on that in the near future. I LOVE Oregon.
Also in Portland, thanks to some kidneys behaving badly and some staphylococcus aureus getting out of hand, my dream internship to Vrindavan, India was substituted for good health and a return to my old stomping grounds at Mitch's Surf Shop. I boo-hooed for a little bit but then figured everything happens for a reason and I'm blessed to be healthy again. Just don't bring up anything about India around me or I'll start sobbing.
So lucky to have my best buddy at my side. If there's anyone that can make a stay at the hospital a good time, it's this guy.
Upon my return home, I was graciously accepted back on the crew at Mitch's Surf Shop. All I'm gonna say is "If you don't know it, learn it."
It's one of the happiest places in San Diego and I'm stoked to live it and love it just about every day. I sometimes blog for them here and if you really want to giggle, here's a montage of me looking slightly uncomfortable and luminescent.
In other news, it's been great to be home with family. This is us feeling exceptionally patriotic on the 4th of July.
This month my sister and her husband moved into the cutest little adobe rambler you've ever laid eyes on AND found out they are having a baby boy. Life rules.
As if things couldn't get any better, I got to visit the East Coast and jump around from state to state with Mister Grant. It was my first time to Washington D.C. and I loved it. I also love this country and feel so lucky to live here.
I think I may move into the Lincoln Memorial, if they let me.
