Tomorrow marks the three month anniversary of us arriving in California. I honestly can’t even believe it! Time sure does fly.
Not to sound like a total baby, but this is the longest I have ever gone without seeing my family. No matter what was going on with my busy life in Virginia I could always find the time to spend a day, night, or weekend on the farm at least once a month or at least every six weeks. Going home to visit is my favorite! And we were always just a few minutes drive from Dan’s family… I now think we took it for granted and didn’t hang out enough. (But just 4 months til we’ll be home for Christmas!!)
I have finally started going through the pictures of our trip over so I can make another photobook of our memories. I used to scrapbook like crazy as a teenager but these are an easier and quicker way to do something similar. I found a few great photos that I had passed over before, like this shot of Dan pumping gas in the middle-of-nowhere Texas. Why I decided to have a gas station photoshoot is beyond me! I must have been bored. And he just looked so handsome, of course.
Watching “New Girl” on Netflix the other night (based in LA), a girl comes rushing into the apartment asking if Nick had found her scarf because, “it’s 65˚ and freezing!” I used to laugh at that idea, but maybe now it will feel that way to me too! It reminds of watching this clip back in February, while it was in the 20˚s in VA and we had snow on the ground! Ha! I would have thought 55˚ felt like summer! This is my future… no telling how we’ll react when we visit home at Christmastime!
