California Livin'

It's been almost five months since we moved to California. 
I have to admit, most of the time I had been in denial. Change has never come easy for me. I didn't want to change our routine of being college students. Because that meant we had to be grownups. I didn't think I was ready for that kind of commitment. So I know there have been times when Denver has been ready to smack me upside the head (just kidding) to have a better, more positive attitude. It's a little nerving to admit that you have weaknesses. I mean, I realize no one is perfect. But no one likes to admit their faults. For a while now, California has been a huge adjustment for me. 

But yesterday, a lot of things changed. Denver got a JOB. And not only was that a blessing answered by a loving Heavenly Father, it was also a nudge (more like a huge kick in the pants) to accept that California is my new home for a while. It feels so good to settle down though. Denver and I have been in limbo for so long, I'm a little beside myself that we get to be in one place for a while. Now we can start a routine, which I'm a big fan of. 

So since we've been in California, we've had lots of wonderful experiences. We've finally settled into our "grown up" lives. And that's all I really wanted in the first place.
