santa cruz

Before moving back home, I spent a day at the beach with David in Santa Cruz. It was right before all of the graduation craziness started and it was nice walking to the beach (yup, he lives within walking distance), getting burritos from a tiny green taqueria, and just laying on the sand.

I have no idea how long we napped. (In reality, it was probably only 30-40 minutes). But now I'm thinking- when are we going to be able to do this again? I leave in just two days and there won't be an ocean within a 2-hour radius of me. I won't be able to walk home. I won't have David.

Maybe it's the pre-travel jitters, but I'm no where close to packing. My room is a disaster, I keep losing my packing list, and there are so many loose ends to tie up. I've spent the past two summers in Europe, but it never felt like this. I've never known what was laying ahead, but this time I don't know what'll be waiting when I come back.


  1. i know how you feel, but it'll be okay. you'll get everything sorted out before you leave and spend wonderful time with david that you can remember the whole summer. and then when you come home, you'll have a clean slate! nothing you have to do, no where you have to go- you can make whatever choices you want. that's exciting, girl!

  2. It will be an amazing adventure :)

  3. Man, I'd love to live by the beach! Sweet sunglasses :)

  4. This is right up your alley. No worries at all.

  5. You'll survive the unknowing. hahaha, we all have to! :) I have complete faith that you'll get through it Celeste... just be ready for a lot of unsuredness and crying. That's inevitable for all of us. If you ever need me just skype me!
