This blog is coming to you live from the greater Los Angeles area.
Our big move has come and gone. We live in California now. This is our house.
Okay not really, but this is our view a few miles away.
So far, I don't really know how I feel about living in California. I love the landscape, climate, shopping, and food. But it's lonely. We don't know anyone. My mom has been here for the past week helping us unpack and get settled. She left today so it hasn't really sunk in yet that we are out here all alone. That makes me sad. Missing everyone so much my heart hurts when I think about them makes me sad. Not knowing how to get to the bank makes me sad. I guess California makes me sad.
The beach makes me happy though. We've been twice this week.
I grew up in Florida and weekly beach trips were a normal thing for us. We moved to Tennessee when I was 12 and after 17 years in a landlocked state, I never imagined myself to live so close to the beach again. It is awesome to be minutes away from some of the most beautiful and famous beaches in the country. California has redeemed itself from being so far away from Tennessee with its glorious beaches.
I know I'm going to like it here once I get to know the area and it finally feels like home. I just have to get over the loneliness first. Be good to us, California, pretty please.
