Hey, guys! Didn't mean to go MIA in the blogosphere for so long. This post is a month late, but as they say, better late than never. Part of my delay is that this trip has left me with a heavy case of the feels. Southern California is the region I grew up in. Seeing it again after 10 years was a major throwback. Ready for the slide show? Here we go!
Woven I gave her. It's official, guys; people are reading Woven on the beach!
And of course, as you would expect, beachy shenanigans ensued.
Fun fact: my wife had never been to Disneyland before. Check that item off her bucket list! Just in time for the 60th anniversary of the park, no less. Since I grew up so close to Anaheim, Disneyland was a biannual deal for most of my childhood. I still remember when they had the sky buckets and the little motorboats. Much of the park has stayed the same after all these years, with a few upgrades. One of my bucket items was to finally dine at The Blue Bayou, that restaurant you can see at the start of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Pricey, but undoubtedly gourmet. And the Fantasmic show afterward was amazing. Disneyland should be a more regular thing for us, I say.
Inside The Blue Bayou - as you can see, I got lots of sun that day.

So, what have I been up to? Why my leave of absence for so long? Much of that will be explained on Wednesday for my IWSG post, but for now I will say I'm actually glad summer is winding to a close. It's been the busiest and weirdest of seasons this year. Now that school has started and I have resumed a 4/10 work schedule, I get an extra day a week to take care of writing business. That's always nice.
Thank you for checking in on me. The plan from here on out is to take the Laire off autopilot and resume regular postings again. Until next time my friends, keep sailing through those clear skies.
What have you been up to this summer? Have a special celebration of your own? If far from where you grew up, planning to go back?
