California Dreamin'

The other day, I heard the song California Dreamin' by The Mamas & The Papas - a song that I've heard at least a hundred times before. However, I never really noticed the lyrics too much until I heard it the other day.

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 L.A.
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

This hit home, especially since we will be going to LA in a little over a year (that's how I'm counting down now). Even though this has been a "mild" winter for Ohio, I'm coming to realize that I'm just not a cold-weather person. I don't like it. I miss the sun. I miss warmth. I miss being able to wear flip flops almost every day out of the year (I do still wear flip flops to yoga class, and endure the freezing temperatures on my tootsies for a few minutes). So, I am California Dreamin'.

PS - We woke up this morning to a winter-wonderland of snow. We've gotten snow this winter, but this was our first "real" one. By the way, our house is the one on the far right.

    We can't wait for you guys to get to CA either! I do have to warn you gets cold here too. It's all over the news what a cold winter we've been having. I think it's been about 63 degrees. Rough! :-)

    Man, that is tough!
