If we were to sit down for coffee today I'd order an iced sugar free vanilla coffee. I'd also probably cry like a baby.
On Tuesday the moving truck drove away with our belongings. Our home turned back into just a house.
Scott and I went to one last sushi dinner at our favorite place to reminisce about our time here in Ventura.
Today we turn in the keys to our house.
We go to dinner with our besties Rik and Liz one last time.
Tomorrow we head down to San Diego to say goodbye to friends, Sunday we hit the road and drive towards the new chapter in our life.
This time is so crazy. I still keep pinching myself to make sure this is real life and isn't a dream.
I don't think us leaving California has really hit me yet.
I have lived in California since 1995. I have lived in so many southern California cities.
I met my bestest friends.
I graduated from college.
I met and married my wonderful husband.
We added our fur baby Khloe to our family.
We have had so many blessings here. I have grown as a woman, a person, a christian, and a wife.
I have become confident in who I am.
I have learned to be more ok with my faults.
I have learned to trust and rely on God first.
I have met some amazing friends at our first duty station, women I know I will still call friends in 20 years.
I started this blog and it has taken me to places I never imagined.
I started my own indie business, something I would have never thought about a few years ago.
California will always be my home. It will always hold a special place in my heart.
But now it is time for us to set sail and experience a new state, a new city, and a whole new set of new experiences.
I don't think it will really hit me until we settle into Virginia in September that I have left my "home" in California.
