We spent our first morning in Rome exploring some ruins and visiting the coliseum. It’s pretty amazing to think that not that long ago people were watching fights to the death as entertainment. Hunger Games anyone?  What I wouldn’t give to read that book again for the first time. It would be like seeing Lost again for the first time. Or Friday Night Lights.

I Want To Go To There

Is there anywhere better than California?  I’ve literally never lived outside of Santa Cruz in my entire life, so I wouldn’t know if there was.

Someone recently asked me where I would live if I could live anywhere in the world, and I  had a hard time coming up with anywhere that would be better than  Santa Cruz. The weather is mild in pretty much every season (It doesn’t get much colder than 50 degrees on a winter day, and doesn’t get much warmer than 80 degrees on a summer day). It’s close to the city (San Francisco), right on the beach (our house is about 4 blocks to the beach), and has lots of great restaurants and fun things to do, while still maintaining some of that small town feel.

Last week, during a warm spell that brought our March days up to 80 degrees, husby and I enjoyed an evening stroll by the beach, and I’m pretty sure it confirmed that this is the greatest place on earth.

If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
