I don't know if it was the leaving the drab New England winter behind and escaping to sun-drenched California, or just a simple change of scenery, but this past week I was inspired to take many more photos.
None of that "Shoot, it's almost time for me to go to bed and I haven't taken any photos today."
Every day inspiration I found inspiration around every corner. And of course, beautiful landscapes against a backdrop of the Pacific Ocean doesn't hurt. Each day it was a challenge to pick just one photo, but I tried to branch out from my love-affair with water views and tried a few others.
So here you have it, my 365project summary, my week in pictures, as brought to you by the lovely state of California.

First stop on the trip: may aunt's home, where she has not one, but two different lemon trees. So of course Sam and I had to make a pitcher of lemonade, cause when do we get to pick lemons in Massachusetts?

The next stop on our trip was the Google headquarters in Mountain View, to visit a former coworker of Sam's. How cool are these bikes that employees can ride around the Google campus?

If there is one thing you need to eat in South America, it's an alfajor, which at its most basic form is dulce de leche sandwhiched between two cookies. Sam and I stayed in the Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, which made me feel like I was back in South America. You can imagine my glee when I came across my first alfajor that I had seen since leaving South America. Yippee!

Why is it that going to a grocery store when you are traveling is so much more interesting than going to one when you are home? Perhaps it's the colorful array of fruits, many of which you do not typically find in one on the East Coast (including my favorite, passion fruit! Seriously, if you ever bring me this tangy fruit or a dessert using it, I will love you forever.)
