Memory Cloth — California Dreaming

I was 20 when I got married. 

We moved to Berkeley for Jared’s graduate school in May. 

My idea of California was formed by Gidget movies.  I took only my summer clothes, cotton shorts and shirts. 

As the rains started in the fall I discovered how cold 50 degrees cold feels. 

When we went back to Illinois for Thanksgiving I got all my sweaters and jackets.
