holga: california dreamin'

all the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey
i went for a walk on a winter's day 
i'd be safe and warm if i was in LA
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

ok, the skies here are actually pretty blue today.
and i am actually in California.
and it's actually not winter at all. i'm not even sure what winters are anymore...other than massive rain clouds and down-pours. it still kind of weirds me out to not have to buy snow gear.
so i know it is kinda silly that this song is playing in my head.
but it is.
i think it's mostly because i just got back this old roll of Holga film from the end of summer.
and i do miss my Southern Cal home.
i miss my Southern Cal people.
and my Southern Cal beach.
and even though Fall is my fave,
i'm missin' my not-so-white legs, and my girls' cute swimmin' suits just a teense bit today.
so i'm eating watermelon and popsicles (wrapped under a blanket) right now... and dreaming of the smell of sunscreen and salty air.

...but don't worry, soup and bread is on the menu tonight... because i'm sure by then my summer cravings will pass and i'll be ready to be cozy again.

mmm soup and bread. i am freezing right now, that sounds wonderful. a little basking in the southern california sun would be a nice alternative.

holga's amazing.

San Clemente is gorgeous this time of year. It's peaceful and so pretty when summer winds down. But NOTHING is more beautiful than the sight of these cuties in their swimsuits! It was good to talk to you today. Hope you have a great weekend enjoying popsicles and soup at your leisure! xoxoxoxo mucho
