The Magic of Malibu

April 19, 2015

My family and I just returned from Malibu, California. We fell in love! Don’t get me wrong. I love my community here on the East Coast, but while we were across the country for Easter break the laid back lifestyle was a welcome change from the quick pace of New Jersey and New York City. The people in Malibu couldn’t have been warmer or friendlier, either.

And the weather! It was cold, rainy and chilly back home while we were in Malibu, but the sun shined on us seemingly nonstop in California. We took advantage of the gorgeous climate and went hiking in the Malibu Mountains and bike riding in Santa Barbara. The four of us enjoyed the surf at Paradise Cove Beach and we even met some celebrities.

In the nine days we were there, we made some new friends who will be friends for life regardless of the miles. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll be making a zip code change. It’s really hard to shake the pull of the blue skies, clear water, and magic of the Malibu Mountains.

For now, though, we’re back on the East Coast. Finally, we’re seeing some sunshine, blue skies and warm temperatures. Spring is here! Between the relaxation in California and the new life bursting outside, I feel invigorated and ready to tackle anything. Falling in love (even with a place) and a good dose of sunshine will do that for you, won’t it?

Pure Love Grows, Donna XOXOXO
