About SoCal Mom

I started this website in 2003, as an easy way to keep my family and friends updated on a family vacation to Britain (where my husband grew up) and Paris (a place I had never been — and long to visit again). I just wanted a place to express my own, first-person thoughts… and post photos, as well.
