Basically this sums up my trips to NYC and Utah. Both Marie and this little girl probably have better golf swings than me.
Hello blog, remember me? It's Laura. I'm sorry I haven't been around. I didn't want to hurt your feelings, but I needed a break. It's me, not you! I needed to get away. I'm back and excited to update you. Well, I'm a little nervous to update. I feel a little rusty. I'm sure something weird and/or horrible will happen soon enough and I'll get back into the swing of things. Since we last talked I visited friends and family in New York and Utah. My visit to New York felt right as rain, as if no time has passed. I had a great time with friends and almost forgot what 3 am looked like. I was a little freaked out that I'd miss it too much and realize LA was mistake. Then I spent a half hour on a cramped, humid subway, sweating out of my flip flops staring at "Smokey Marie" and her missing fingers anti-smoking PSA and quickly missed my car AC, palm trees and actual career prospects. In Utah, I had a few milestone moments in my quest for a "lifestyle": I got my first set of golf clubs (Lady Hagen's - for ladies who like to play lady golf with other ladies), I now own and enjoy wearing a skort (it could be worse, I could be rockin' coolots), and played my first 18 holes. (in 102 degree Utah summer heat, which still beats a subway train with a broken AC.) I played and drank with mom in law Julie and her friends, who make up 80% of my blog reading audience (What up, Sue!) So that's my July! We have so much look forward to - my six month-versary in LA, more summer...um, fire and mudslide season. I promise you, dear blog, I'll keep you by my side along the way.
