California Livin’

Yikes, it has been quite awhile since I have blogged. My excuse? Moving sucks! I like to pretend that I love moving, that I’m really easy going and I can adapt to anything, no problem. Unfortunately, that’s simply not true. It is true that I like to move and experience different places, overall I actually am pretty easy going and I really can adapt, BUT I guess all of those things take time. The first few months after a move are always the worst for me. I miss working, I miss my friends, little things like my furniture actually fitting into my new apartment seems like the biggest problem in the world (it’s really not) and don’t even get me started on having to drive EVERYWHERE with a GPS. As much as I told myself how lucky I was to be here, I always found something to miss or complain about because I was adjusting and I guess I cope by being a Negative Nancy. But a month becomes two months and before you know it, you have a routine, some new friends and it slowly becomes your new home. I am absolutely in love with San Diego and feel like I’ve found a wonderful home away from home. I’m appreciating and loving all the nuances around me.  I love the palm trees, especially after sunset when they’re just a tall silhouette in the sky. I love the people here — they’re so nice! Not the same as Minnesota nice, but just happy to be alive nice. I love the weather and the fact that the air smells like the ocean when the breeze is just right. I love that I can look west and see the ocean and look east and see mountains…that always makes me pause. I love that there is yoga on the beach and fitness classes everywhere. I love the crazy plants that look like they’re from Dr. Seuss books. I love that soccer is outside YEAR ROUND. I love acai bowls (haven’t had one? You need one). There is a lot to love here, I am never short of things to be thankful for. I still love my Minnesota and always will, but if I have to be here for awhile, I certainly will not complain :)

Enough of my ramblings! This is Katie(she’s a total BABE), she ironically is also from Minnesota, and is living the California life and loving it! We call ourselves Calisotans, baby! We had a beautiful evening wandering around Crown Point and capturing the ever dreamy California sunset.

    Let me just take a moment and brag about Joey for a second here. She is lovely inside and out. She is so much fun to shoot with let alone just to have around. She will make you smile, laugh, and bring out natural settings. She has an eye for art and photography. Great ideas and you would be smart to use her for your photography needs. This girl and her talent is all around amazing. How amazing is she? The first photo of this blog is the very first photo she took of me. She captured everything perfectly ON THE FIRST PHOTO. She's just all around a lovely person:)
