a boy madly in love with California ♥
It is funny how time and distance can completely change your perspective.  I attended college in Santa Barbara and while it is an undoubtedly a beautiful place, I was never in love with the small city.  Now as I get older I see Santa Barbara in a whole new light, and while it may never be “my city”, I love spending time there while we are in California.  We spent 5 days there in July for my brother’s wedding and one night while waiting for a table at Brophy Bros we stolled around the harbor at sunset and I suddenly could no longer remember any of the things I disliked about Santa Barbara when I lived there- that California sunshine is some kind of magic.
