This little family of mine! We had so much fun being tourists in my old stomping grounds! We seriously did a little bit of everything that Malibu has to offer… except surf… I’ve never been a big fan of the cold Pacific water. We did go to Pepperdine, ate at all my favorite spots, went hiking, saw some of my greatest friends, and of course did some shopping ;). It was a blast!
There are days when I reminisce about my time in Malibu. It was such a special time in my life. I was finally feeling what freedom was for the first time (my parents were 2000+ miles away!!). I was meeting people who were totally different from me and grew up in a different world than me. It was truly one of the best experiences, and I don’t think I would be who I am today if I hadn’t have been brave enough to leave the comfort of my home in Texas and go to college in California. I never wanted to conform to the norm and get too comfortable knowing that my parents could just rescue me at the drop of a hat.
Someday, Bennett will be at the age where he is figuring out where he wants to go to college and as much as I selfishly will want him to be close to home, I hope that I am brave enough at that time to let him choose his own path and encourage him to fulfill his dreams.
Anyway, once again, Husband & I had a great time with our little buddy. It’s crazy that his first college visit was to my school across the country when daddy’s school is only a 2 hour drive from our house in Florida :).
I just know he is going to be a wave!!! ;) Enjoy the pics!
