Today I took a quick little trip down south to visit friends and family. I got to see my one and only niece that I haven't seen since August- seriously criminal and it makes me want to cry just thinking about it. She's growing up so fast ::tears::
On top of having a long distance relationship with my boyfriend, I also have one with my brothers and niece who all live in San Diego...and if you want to get technical the rest of my family too. I grew up in Orange County so most of my fam resides there. I am lucky that Orange County (I refuse to say OC) is only a 45 min drive if traffic permits. So growing up I always had my cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers, and parents in the same city.
I truly believe that relationships are built on constant communication and seeing each other. You can't really preschedule bonding moments. They just happen and that means seeing each other consistently. So it's been really hard not having family all in the same place. To make matters worse, I am the only one in LA!
So I am trying to make it a point to see everyone as much as possible. I had a really great childhood because I was always surrounded by friends, family, and family friends. I want the same thing for my future kids.
Speaking of things I love, I've got to mention my infatuation with denim right now. Below are some of my favorites by GRLFRND. This brand dominates my closet. Comfortable and fits like a damn dream.
I know you'll love them as much as I do!
