california dreaming | nj photographer

My family jumpstarted summer with a 10 day vacation in California.  We started in the Orange County area and drove up the coast to San Francisco, stopping in a few cities along the way.  I am a huge fan of the road trip and although, my three sons drove us crazy some of the time, it was a memorable bonding family experience. We used to live in both Palo Alto and San Francisco years ago.  I fell in love with California back then and still feel overjoyed with happiness when I visit.  Maybe it's the California sun or the laid back vibe or the breathtaking scenery? Whatever it is, I wish I could bottle it up and take it home with me in NJ.  It was wonderful to see our old favorite spots and re-connect with old friends.  I am so thankful that life's journey allows us to call many places home, including California.
