Today, I’m off! California-bound to visit my little sister Alyssa, who just moved there last year. I’m starting the week off in Irvine where she lives, then meeting Matt for a weekend wedding in Northern California (San Francisco to be exact). Alyssa and I don’t have a ton of things planned, but one thing’s for sure: she’s taking me to Santa Catalina, 26 miles across the sea. As I’ve mentioned before, the Wheatones signature song pays tribute to this tiny island, a place I still have never been. So stay tuned for updates about my trip…they will be coming soon!
