Tomorrow marks the first day of fall, and after what feels like a never-ending heat wave (hence my summer attire), I’m finally ready to break out my fall wardrobe and embrace the cooler temperatures. Between travel and social obligations, this summer flew by. Until last week, I hadn’t even taken a dip in the ocean, which is inexcusable, given that I live in Santa Monica. Fortunately a trip to Hawaii last week allowed me to make up for lost beach time, and served as the perfect farewell to summer. I always enjoy traveling, but after being away from home more than usual, it feels extra special to sleep in my own bed again.
