Monterey has always been a sentimental city for me. It’s my middle name and the first city my dad lived in when he immigrated to the states for college from Hong Kong, and I’m his first child. We would visit several times a year while I was growing up.
This weekend, I had the chance to celebrate our early anniversary getaway here. It was beautiful to draw the parallels of past childhood memories with the one I want to spend my future with.
Here I am chillin with the Lone Cypress, one of the most photographed trees in Northern America and our favorite part of the scenic 17-mile drive.
