I’m writing this at my favorite time of day (dusk) driving through one of my favorite spots in the world – Orange County. I grew up here and cannot describe how joyous and, at the same time, peaceful I feel about being in California on the eve of my book launch.
We,ve had a mini family reunion in the Hollywood Hills, complete with a coyote and a bee the size of a young grizzly. I spent the afternoon with my best friend from high school and a photographer traipsing through Fullerton High reliving crazier days. And to top it all off, I strolled past the famed Book Soup in West Hollywood to see my name and book in the window.
There won’t be any sneaking into the Whiskey on this trip, nor will there be any hiking up to the Hollywood sign in the dark. But it sure feels right to be living my own little milestone in a place that feels like home.
