One

Today marks my one year anniversary of moving to California.

Let that sink in. (You can catch up on all the moving, waiting etc here and here)

Can you believe it's already been a year? It's crazy how fast time flies. Most days it doesn't feel like I've lived here for a year, other times it feels like I've lived here a lot longer. Some days I'll be driving down the road and think, "Wow! I live in California now. I'm on the west coast and in a completely different time zone than most people I know." It's crazy to comprehend a lot of the days.

When I first moved to Sacramento, I only knew one person. I had to make friends and put myself out there with people. In the year that I've been here I feel like I've surrounded myself with some good people. I've also been able to get out there and participate in some fun activities. I've traveled to places that I wouldn't have been able to so easily while living on the east coast. I experienced what it was like to mow the grass in February. I've experienced what it's like to take care of a house all on my own, etc.

While some days are more fun than others, I miss a lot of my east coast friends and family. I can't wait till the day that they are out here. Until then I'm going to keep on moving forward and hope for a better tomorrow. This year has definitely been a learning year.

I for real can't believe its already been a year, I remember when you were still on a waiting list and THAT seemed like forever!

I can't believe it's been a year! And it has been a big one - and you're right one full of learning. But you've come out stronger and smarter and more awesome (awesomer?)
