first year without a summer

Yesterday looked like this and it signaled that autumn in England had officially arrived. The old me, living in LA, would have been begging for autumn to begin by mid-July (was never a fan of too much constant heat) but the new London me is lamenting the fact that I hardly even knew summer this year.

I took Southern California for granted, always preferring fall and winter over its warm rays. Well, I got what I wanted and now I live where it's November year-round. I do love the cold and don't mind the rain but I think I'm developing a Vitamin D's just not healthy to lack consistent sunshine in your life.

Since there's nothing I can do to change the weather, I thought I'd create a mini summer escape through some photos from my warm So Cal days.

I'm already feeling better :)
