I spent most of October celebrating in different parts of California with friends and family. I went on a road trip
to Santa Cruz and hugged 1000 year-old trees with my high school teacher, Joannie Parker. I went to a double 50th birthday party in San Francisco during Fleet Week and had birthday dinners in La Jolla and Los Angeles.
