Hello Luvs and Happy Sunday!

Today is the last day of my Tell Me Your Love Story Series, and I find it totally fitting that it is dedicated to this GORGEOUS state I love to call home!

Katie Harrington, Senior Manager of Social Media and Public Relations at Munchkin, is a recent transplant to California, and not surprisingly, has “warmed” to it’s beauty quite quickly.

Read her love story below, and tell us YOURS to win the Munchkin Luxe Gift Basket! GAH! What an amazing gift… Thank you Katie!!!

You have through tomorrow to enter to win any of the prizes in this series (Lulu & Georgia, Smashbox Cosmetics, Drybar, Our Heiday, Kelly Golightly)… and the rules are simple!

I want to thank all of my amazing friends for their donations to this series… my spirits are high, my mood is bright, and your love has lifted me higher! In other words… you rock!

I’m thrilled to be able to share my family’s Californian love story. We recently moved from my hometown of Chicago to Los Angeles and have been busy exploring many of the neighborhoods around the city. Lately our weekends have consisted of mini trips to cities like Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, and San Diego. It seems as though we just can’t get enough of the perpetual sunshine and great outdoors! In fact, just this week we’ve experienced our first 80° February! Trust me when I say that flip flops in “winter” is a beautiful thing. My four-year-old son Gavin adores the beaches, zoos, and seasonal fare at local farmers’ markets. He also recently met Mickey Mouse during our first magical visit to Disneyland. The last seven months  have been so refreshing and therapeutic as we’ve be surrounded by palm trees and mountains without the intrusion of sleet and slush. Patrick, Gavin, and I are having an absolute blast settling into SoCal lifestyle and are loving our new found wanderlust.
