Is it just me, or has this year seemed to just fly by? I can't believe it's already time to buy Christmas presents and break out the sweaters (well-light sweaters here in LA). Luckily the weather has cooled down in So-Cal so it feels a liiiiiiittle bit like fall should feel. I did have to go more inland though to find what fall really looks like in California. Unfortunately most of my favorite month was spent bedridden due to a nasty cold. I spent close to 2 weeks basically sneezing my brains out and living off of chicken noodle soup, which led to a relatively uneventful November. But considering I spent the majority of last month traveling to Paris, London and Texas, an uneventful month was a nice change of pace. That being said, I did have the happy chance to surprise my family on Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!! My sister cried, my grandmother screamed and I'm pretty sure my dad still doesn't think those 3 days actually happened. It was such a fun surprise AND the fact that I got to spend my absolute favorite holiday with my sweet family, made my first surprise trip home a major success!!
