California

With my dad's colon cancer diagnosis and my breast cancer, there was no way I was going to cancel my trip home. We'd been saving for 6 months to go to my cousin's long awaited wedding and now I needed to see my dad. More than anything, I needed to rest.

We were blessed to be able to stay in a beach house on Balboa Island in Newport Beach, thanks to friends of my parents ❤ Cool breezes and gorgeous sunny days all week!

I got to teach one of my painting parties when my sister hosted friends and family.

Lunch with girlfriends.
Playing on the beach with my kids, my nieces and new nephews.

From the ocean to the mountains...

After a week at the beach, we headed to my hometown of Lake Arrowhead. I think these mountains will always call me back 💙 More sunshine, more rest.
Preparing to come home ready to fight. I'm almost ready...

Tomorrow...
