The earth shifts beneath my feet, and I roam your hills. The sun kisses my face and I feel your warmth.
Oh California, you were my first love. You breathed life into me before I even knew you. I will miss your high-speed winds, and the tumbleweeds that blew down my street when I was just a girl.
I will miss the drives down PCH, blaring the radio, drinking in the smell of the ocean. I will miss your blazing sunsets, your sandy intricacies, your aura of golden happiness.
You gave me so much happiness, California. I met my wonderful husband here and breathed life into my beautiful baby girl beneath your sun.
Your amazing opportunities allowed my dad to raise me in a quiet town nestled beneath the mountains, wrapped in 80’s nostalgia, glimmering just on the edge of big city life.
Thank you California for the beautiful memories of college. They were some of the best years of my life and I’ll never forget them.
As my recollections become mere whispers, I’ll never forget you my first love. As your sun-kissed summers become a distant memory, I will always treasure my time on your sandy shores.
I love you California, and you’ll always hold a special place in my heart ♥
