I never thought I’d be saying this, but California is way too cold right now! I am told that what we are experiencing is called “June Gloom” and that the warm weather is just around the corner. Lets hurry things up Mr. Weatherman…I shouldn’t want to wear my winter jacket in June…thats why I left New England! 🙂
Yesterday I was shooting for Brighton in Newport, CA and unfortunately it was a chilly day aswell with scattered drizzle. Although the weather wasn’t too great, it didn’t stop me from having a great time on set with the crew! We were lucky enough to be shooting in a BEAUTIFUL mansion in a gated community owned by one of the executives of the company. I wish I had taken pictures because it was truly my DREAM house!! (Now I just need to work with them everyday for the rest of my life to afford it!) Seems that is somewhat of a possibility however…she is putting it on the market!! I am counting my pennies as I write! Half way through our day we were greeted by the realtor and a lovely British couple. They seemed to be intrigued to watch a photo shoot, but were a little confused when the photographer joked that shoots take place every Monday…comes with the house!
Even though California is in full cloud coverage, I will not have to deal with it for very long…I am flying back to New England tonight! I didn’t think I was going to be able to make it back to the east coast for my ‘lil brother’s birthday (July 4th) this year, but my cards all fell into place at the last-minute! My new agency in New York (New York Models) asked that I come out to meet some clients after the July 4th holiday. I saw it as the perfect opportunity to escape home for a few days before heading into NYC!
I am very excited to be going back for a little visit to the Big Apple! Although I love my new life in California, there are many people and places that I am beginning to miss and can’t wait to get back to my old stomping grounds! Even the thought of being able to walk everywhere puts a smile on my face. (Having to drive everywhere in California is a major drawback) Aside from visiting with friends (and working) while I’m in New York…I am hoping to play tourist for just a bit aswell. I realized just the other day that I have never made a trip out to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island, and still haven’t taken the time to walk the Brooklyn Bridge! I also hope to hit up some of the museums, see a show or two, and maybe sneak in a bit of shopping! (I hope my favorite shopping buddies Brad and Ryan are ready 😉 )
My bags are packed, I have checked in online. I am luck enough to have a great friend who will be watching my car while I’m away, so I am headed to his place in just a few minutes. So glad to be able to post before I head over to LAX…next time my update will be coming from the Eastern Timezone!!
