From the time I was very little, I had an obsession with California. I was born into a family of Californians, but I had the “misfortune” to be born in Utah. It was unfair. The Golden State was home to beaches, Disneyland, Hollywood, and a large portion of my family. California was the dream, but I lived in Utah. So, I had to settle for family vacations to SoCal and listening to the Beach Boys on a regular basis.
Many of my dreams changed, but some of them have stayed close to my heart. California is one such dream, and two weeks ago it became a reality. My husband and I just moved to Los Angeles, and I am FINALLY a California Girl.
The past couple weeks have been incredibly surreal and ridiculously exciting. It was of utmost importance to do many touristy things as soon as possible. Here is a look at our first California adventures:
We explored the Santa Monica Pier, shopped, and went to the beach.
Daniel and I celebrated our second anniversary with season passes to Universal Studios!
We went to downtown Hollywood and explored the Walk of Fame.
Exploring California has been a wonderful adventure so far. Every day I learn something new. Every day I become a little more brave. I am so thankful for the opportunity to begin living this dream. I am ready to see what the world has in store for this California Girl.
