Finally, the baby takes his afternoon nap and I lie down for the nap (later than normal) I had promised myself all day. The house is a gazillion degrees but that’s not why my eyes are wide open. The next thing I know, I hear Grant waking.

I am SO happy to be living in San Diego again and with that comes some unsureness (is that a word??) of how I will re-enter a world I have been away from for a little while. I. Have. Changed. Of course there have been changes here too…my favorite donut shop is WAY too popular and now there’s a line around the block. LOL. This donut line fascination made me lose my nap. 😉

I’m moving in, cooking, trying to see friends, working photography jobs and maintaining my acupuncture license with continuing education coursework. There are birthday parties, family events… Everyone is busy! I remind myself of that when I get the guilts about falling behind in keeping up with my family and friends. 

There are a few little vegetable plants barely holding on here and what kid doesn’t love to pick a pretty red thing? 

San Diegooooo

IMG_9203The past few weeks have been filled with packing, moving, a photo shoot, yada yada yada… I LOVE my blogging community and I’ve missed it here so much!!! We moved from Orange County to San Diegoooo!!! We had been talking about it for years and all of the sudden, within a matter of weeks, it happened. 

The new place is so awesome. It’s smaller than our last place yet laid out so well so it seems larger. There is a nice open plan in the family room and cute little bedrooms. The light is so beautiful! The backyard is super private and we’re excited to have friends and family over.

I made like a thousand enchiladas (rice, beans, cheese, ground turkey, green salsa) and we eat them each night on paper plates. 

I know, we have moved SO MANY TIMES in the past 3 years! HA! 

Have you ever done something impulsive and a bit scary that turned out to be so crazily awesome? Hopefully every day. lol
