I'm conceding defeat. California is not in my future come January. I'd hoped to celebrate my 35th birthday there but it turns out paying my bills and affording to eat is more of a priority. Ho hum.
My cousins have lived in San Francisco at least 15 years now and each of those years I've expressed my hope to visit soon. I hardly ever get to see Clara and Emily because of the distance and I suppose I have romanticized this future visit as a result. Still, they're my only girl cousins on my mom's side of the family and I like the idea of us having time together, just us three.
I especially liked the idea of celebrating my birthday with them and a few friends who also live in San Francisco. I hoped 2015 would be the year I finally made it out to California for the first time
I'm putting my birthday dream back on a shelf.
This is my third post as the Pilgrim in Residence at A Sacred Journey. Head over to read the rest.
