After putting it off for several months, I finally found some time to make it home to Southern California to spend some time with my mom and brother. We didn't do anything too extravagant, but it was great to catch up with the family. I know San Jose and San Clemente are only six-seven hours away from each other, but it still feels like we're on opposite sides of the planet sometimes. I hope that I can see my family more often this year. For now, these photographs will remind me of the great times I had.
