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!)
