I left my heart in California...

This past weekend Jacob and I took a trip to Cali since we were alredy half way there when we were in St. George for Jacob's business trip. It's always very bitter sweet going down there. I love to see my sisters and love to be back in Temecula but it breaks my heart when I have to leave. It gets worse every time. I need to move back there. Jacob and I had a serious talk on the way home about moving back. I think I've slipped into a depression here in Utah. I have zero motivation to do anything up here. It's just not home. I can't figure it out either. There is no reason that I shouldn't be happy here. I have a beautiful home, amazing friends and an awesome town. But it's not home... Driving down the streets of Temecula I kept thinking..."This is pure Heaven." I have so many great memories and so much close family and friends down there. It was 73 degrees the entire time! I am truly a California girl. I want to move back more than anything in the world. Jacob and I are going to make a game plan for moving back when he gets back from St. George. It will probably take a couple years since we have to wait for the housing market to drop some more. It's on it's way down right now. By then we will be able to sell our home and he can look into getting a job down there. I just have to keep positive until then...

My beautiful sisters...well, most of them.We are missing 4.

I totally understand about your California love! I felt the same way when we moved back from Ut. I hope you are able to move back. :) Sounds like you had a lot of fun while you were here.

I totally understand what you are talking about... i CRAVE CA all the time. I always have my next trip planned before I leave, so I know that I will be back before too long. But with our family growing so fast i know that wont last long. We really do love it out here, but its just not HOME! But like you said "stay positive."

And it looks like you had a good time while you were there. How could you not, right?!?!!

Here! Here! My mom moved to Arizona about 5 years ago. I've only been to Corona 2 times since. I miss it like crazy. It is so unsettling having your parents move as an adult. I feel like I have no home. And I certainly don't feel at home here in Texas. I hope you make it back to So Cal one day.

My serious question is...What do you do to stay so skinny? Baby number three has really put me over the edge. I am working my tail off...yet my tail is not coming off. I have never worked so hard to loose weight...especially with such slow results. I really need you to tell me what you did. You look incredible.

I am sorry that you miss California so much. Maybe I should stop razzing you all the time about you leaving here. Home is totally where you make it and I know that you live by that better than anyone, but if you do make your way back here to Temecula I would be soooo happy.

I bet you will be coming back just about the time Tom and I move up there. I don't know why I don't feel an attachment to California. Maybe it is because I am living here right now. I guess you will just have to talk to me in a few years about feeling homesick. I love you and would love to have you close by me. We will just have to plan it better this next time.

I think I would have a hard time if I moved away from Cali.. despite the ridiculous amount we paid for our house I love it here! I hope it works out for you guys. I would like to know too what you do to stay so thin.. you look awesome!

I know what you mean. THat would be so hard. I would love if you moved back. The house prices are insane. They are coming down so keep watching.

It would be so fun to have you guys back here. I am sorry to hear you are having a hard time in Utah. There is just something about being in Cali though, I would totally agree. The cake is adorable.
