An Early Moving Reflection

It has been a while since I have just written whatever is on my mind so instead of a re-cap right now, I just want to let the words flow :)

I am extremely happy right now. I am here, in my new home, in the place I dreamt for years of moving to. I just had dinner with my neighbors, Stella is snuggled up on the couch with me, and I'm texting new friends I've already made here. So much has changed in a matter of days and I feel so great about what lies ahead.

I am in awe of all that this city has to offer. All that there is to see and do. I'm about to be really cheesy but...

It's almost like that feeling you're supposed to feel when you meet your perfect match. You just know. It feels so right. That's how I feel living in San Diego. I feel so in my element. San Diego is all the things I love about a city all rolled into one. And I don't care what time of day it is, I'm amazed at the sights my own neighborhood offers me.




Moving far away from home in a city where you only know a few people really puts you out of your comfort zone. You have to re-define everything while staying true to you. You're constantly challenged whether it be by the roads and figuring out where you are and how to get un-lost or conquering the fears you never knew you had [or even the ones you knew you did - helloooo, spiders!] You find new ways to do things on your own because you don't always have a friend nearby, let alone a husband, boyfriend, or family member to come help at the snap of a finger.

I love every second of this and I've only been here a week. I have several more adventures planned this weekend that will be putting me out of my comfort zone again, but I guess that's good, right? :)

Glad you feel so at home here! I just moved here in February (well, technically to La Mesa, not SD, but it's San Diego COUNTY haha) and absolutely love it!

Can't wait to meet up for sushi with you, Tammy, & the other girls. :D
