Years from now when I’m a distant memory...my story will include a moment when Daryl asked to spend his College Spring Break in New Mexico because his fashion hero Tom Ford lived there...instead we decided to spend the next 3 years in Southern California with my brother John...each year cemented my love for Cali Living and this born and bred New Englander and temporary Southerner found her happy place...even near death spinal surgery and thyroid cancer could not stop the inevitable...We all somehow ended up here in San Diego...
My family roots began in Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia and Nova Scotia and came together in Hartford, CT and Springfield, MA where I grew up playing and competing on Double Dutch teams, countless hours with Jackie Carmichael braiding my hair, playing BBall for Bulkeley including breaking the offensive rebound record, family cookouts with members I had to constantly ask my Mother what was their name each year, moments in the Blue Hills neighborhood working as a Candy Striper at Mount Sinai Hospital where I met the love ❤️ of my life...shopping at Model Market, Thomas’ for candy and the best ham grinder ever from Mr. Pizza...Hartford will always represent so many wonderful memories that my sons will never know...
I wonder what the future holds for my children and their children who now enjoy authentic Mexican, Filipino, Hawaiian and Far East cuisines, constant good weather and sunshine, no snow shoveling or fall season raking leaves 🍁, trips to LA or Palm Springs instead of NY or Boston, South Bay living instead of Northend living...no memory of any Chafin clan members instead we have created new family members recently...
This picture reminded me that sometimes your journey will change and alter everything and everyone around you 😊 #mystory#myfamily#myjourney#wilsoncreekwinery#bluehills#newenglander#southbay#chafin#caligirl
Had my first evening out since the move 💚 Went to Fredericksburg to see what was going on and it was interesting. Few things I learned: - Eagles fans will seriously fight someone that says Fuck the Eagles. -Drunk people are the same on the east coast too. Obnoxious. -The giant pretzels really are giant. -Latinas are not very common in these parts. I got quite a few looks and stares whenever I walked into a place. Then I realized, my friend and I were the only 2 Latinas that I saw all evening. -People really do bring their babies into bars. -They are super serious about their parking areas in Fredericksburg.
I hope you all had a safe night 💚 #Fredericksburg#VA#stpatricksday#stpaddysday#capitolalehouse#shamelessselefie#caligirl#downtown#oldtown
