To the Weekend
One year ago today we left southern California, and moved here:
We said good- bye to ALL of our family and friends. To stable jobs, health insurance, long commutes, and crazy gas bills . To wonderful stores like Target, Starbucks, and Anthro. To traffic, smog, In N Out, orange trees, and 100 degree temps. To the desert. To the beach. Good- bye to everything we'd ever known.
And said hello to this small mountain town 16 hours away. To seasonal jobs, active lifestyles, and being within walking distance of almost everything we need. I walk in shops and meet the owner. Before when we'd both have the same day off, we'd go out to eat and maybe then to a movie. We still do that, but maybe we'll go on a long hike beforehand now. I love the transformations this new lifestyle has had on both of us. I never wake up counting the days to the weekend anymore... I just wake up and go.
It's crazy how fast time flies by... and I'm so happy to be living this life right now.
I hope your weekend is full of adventure, reflection, and joy. And I'll see you back here next week with a recipe for banana cupcakes!
