En Route to the OC

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Hello from 10,000+ feet in the air. Woohoo, wi-fi on the plane, how spoiled are we? As I sip my ginger ale in my seat above the clouds, I’m reminded of the hilariously true video clip, “Everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy.”

Whitney and I are en route to Orange County, California for a few days of sun, beach and….I’m one of the few & lucky attendees of The Jasmine Star Workshop! A full day of learning from the talented J*, wedding photographer and business woman extraordinaire. If you’ve been following my blog, you will have probably heard me talk about her before…particularly in this post.

As soon as my workshop seat was secure, I got on the phone with my sister. We had been talking of a California trip for awhile. Ideally it would have been a road trip had we the luxury of more time, but here we are, mid-flight to the OC. And Whitney gets to experience a whole bunch of firsts, and I get to enjoy making fun of her for it! Ha, not really, I promise. We get to enjoy making fun of her together ;) Her random blonde comments are actually quite endearing…”Oooh I’ve never been on a train in the airport before….it’s like a sideways elevator!” And then, upon getting settled in our “steerage” seats, “where’s first class?” the front of the plane, we passed through it. “Oh. Oh,  I’ve heard of the curtain before, but I’ve never seen it.”

Brief confession time: the last couple weeks have been less than inspiring. It hasn’t helped that we’ve been experiencing a serious lack of vitamin D. I’d like to think that this trip was scheduled with that in mind…so here’s hoping that some distance, beach time, sister time, new friends, challenges and experiences will send me home with a fresh outlook and a healthy dose of motivation. I mean, if that doesn’t cut it, I’m in serious trouble!

The all important, early-morning Starbucks. Especially since my body decided I wasn’t allowed a restful sleep last night.

Yay for the cheesy airport drop-off pic!

Next report will be coming from Newport Beach :)
