California Photo Diary

My mini-vacation to California with my family can best be described with all the Instagram images I took. (Instagram is a photo-sharing app for iPhones.) Above: playing “Where in the world is PSS?” with my Twitter followers.

Above: I tweeted the answer to the where’s PSS question with a picture.

Plane rides are so much more entertaining when you have family by your side (instead of stinky strangers).

Mulholland Drive.

Above 2 photos: My aunt’s place boast gorgeous foliage, views, and astounding bougainvilleas.

Peach tree in my aunt’s front yard. Oh how I wish I could grow things like this in Texas!

  • Beautiful! Makes me miss LA so much. But I live in Texas now too. Not the same but I'm always grateful that I grew up here (in TX).

  • Lovely pics! The one of the pond is my favorite. California is such a beautiful place.
