Making a U-turn

I was raised on the other side of the country. I did life there for 23 years and I loved it. Then I moved to Southern California, the other side of earth. Atleast it felt like it at the time. It took me awhile to adjust to California life, especially Southern California life. But I embraced it. Looking back I can say that I have transformed into a California girl and I love it! And I love that I love it! Of course I’ll always be a midwest girl at heart (pop will is still called pop, not soda or coke). But I like the “Cali” flare I have picked up.  I am thankful for how God has used my time in California. I grew up a lot in the last 9 years, became a wife and a mom. I now know that I needed distance and space for God to grow me into the woman I am today. Now after 9 years almost to the date I am moving back to my roots. I am sad to leave the state I have grown to love. But I am excited to go back and to take my family with me. I am thankful for this unexpected door that has been opened for us and thankful for the opportunity to share my California flare with my midwest family and friends.

    I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.

      Aubrey- I loved your comments. I am feeling sad but very happy for the new adventure that awaits you and your family. I loved visiting all of you and have such good memories of Chico. I am very happy that my grandchildren will be having great family around them as they grow up and I am excited to visit Taia, Kaia and Mason in the near future. I cannot wait to see what God has planned for all of you in a whole new place. Love ya always.
