Saturday morning I decide to go visit my aunt. I had not seen her since March. She lives about an hour and a half away! She is my O.N.L.Y. relative in Cali. Me and my youngest gas up at 9 a.m and hit the freeway.

That evening we hop in her truck and head to her best friends house. She is also my aunt in my eyes. She and my aunt headed out to California right after highschool together. She has been around my WHOLE life. We hung out at her house laughing and drinking. Talking about old times.

Sunday we went to brunch at an AWESOME jazz brunch club. There was a live jazz artist. He came to our table to sign my aunts cd she purchased. Guess what? He is from Chicago too!!!! Now for thoose of you that don't Chicagoans are a rare breed!!!! When we get together.............we had such a good time tallinkg about home!!!!

Overall it was nice to be around loved ones. I miss my family!!!!! California is great but there is no place like home!!!!

You're right Dorothy, "there's no place like home". Especially when home is New York City (no disrespect to any other city). I have come to one major conclusion over the years - the more you travel, the more you'll miss home.
