Top Ten Reasons Why I Love California!

Two years ago my hubby was offered an opportunity to move to California. He asked me if I was ready to make the leap from being an East (Right) Coaster to a Left Coaster – I didn’t hesitate long enough to even blink and before I knew it we were sorting and packing 17 years worth of “stuff” (most of it useless, I must add). That was nearly two years ago and we haven’t looked back.

When I landed at Los Angeles airport (LAX) hubby greeted me and said words that to this day make me smile – “Welcome home”. Now before you think this is a naive love-fest for California, note we had longed to be residents of California for quite some time. Many family vacations were spent in some of our favorite places such as Laguna, Coronado and San Juan Capistrano. So, when opportunity knocked I bought another bathing suit, checked out places to move that would have walkability, safe neighborhoods with a view and started to pack! (The makers of Rubbermaid pack and stack tubs thank me to this day!)

Discovering California’s Inland Empire – Beautiful and Culturally Rich

I am what many consider a “newbie” to California. Born and raised on the east coast, my family recently relocated to Southern California. Despite a full work schedule I do manage to squeeze in time to discover my new “home” and surrounding areas! Recently, I hopped in my car and drove EAST. This was a bit unusual for me as I typically head south towards Orange County or WEST towards the ocean. But, on this occasion I set my wheels traveling the freeway eastward. That is how I discovered the majestic Inland Empire of California and Route 66.
