Sight – In my last Five Senses Friday post, I wrote about the Christmas lights in Naples (Long Beach), California. My mom and I made it up there last night to walk around and it did not disappoint!
Hear – The thing I love most about being in California is the ability to swim outside! The thing I love the most about swimming is the silence. I love the fact that you hear nothing but the swishing of H2O once you put your face in the water. Very relaxing.
Feel – Today, I am feeling very happy that the winter solstice is upon us. That means the nights are getting shorter, the days are getting longer, and summer is a mere 6 months away!
Smell – My nose has been tickled with the scent of fresh basil growing in my mom’s backyard. I can’t wait to make some pesto and Caprese salads!
Taste – The first thing I did when I arrived in California was swing by Wahoo’s for lunch. It has become a tradition to make it my first food stop. If there were a Wahoo’s in Chicago, I might not be so grumpy in the winter months. Hmmm… franchise opportunity, maybe?
