One of my favorite places in the US is the Bay Area in California. I had the pleasure of living in Palo Alto from 2007-2008. I loved every minute of it. There is something so special about the sunlight, the air and the energy in that part of the country. So many bright, innovative people. And I just loved that laid back California lifestyle. After six years, it was nice to return and check out all of our old haunts. We strolled the Stanford campus (the most beautiful college campus ever in my opinion), ate delicious food and visited old friends. I am not sure if I will ever move back to the West Coast, but it is very tempting. I always feel that pull back to the Golden State.
