5 Things I'll Miss About SoCal

  1. The weather (duh!). I love open-toed and peep-toe shoes. I like cute skirts and bare legs. Sunshine is an instant pick-me-up. So I'm thinking maybe just the summer in Alaska, then somewhere else for winter.
  2. Trader Joe's. Only the best grocery store ever! Unless you want name-brands, but you can get those anywhere. Two-Buck Chuck Merlot, I already mourn for you.
  3. My scooter. I just can't think of a decent, economical way to transport my baby bike, and storing it wouldn't be practical. I'm sure I'll own another one day, but it really stings for now. The ride up Laurel Canyon Blvd. is one of the best things about L.A.
  4. Chipotle. I love their food so much, I'm looking in to opening an Alaskan franchise. Seriously.
  5. Hummingbirds. These cool little creatures abound around here, I see them all the time. I just don't remember them being very plentiful in Alaska.

I'm looking forward to moving, but change is scary, and while I haven't been exactly happy in Southern California (at least not in a while), I did have some really good times here.

So are you roughing it? Tent campstove and all? I am hoping you're going to keep your computer and blog up when you leave!

So Cal to Alaska? Yikes. The weather in LA today probably isn't helping either.

It looks like we're both making similar moves. I take sundresses, sandals & bare legs for granted. Like you, I'm not sure if it's permanent, but it's happening. I've had an easier time accepting change since I've realized nothing is permanent. Good luck to you, sweetie!

You can always go back after your Alaskan adventure....

For some strange reason, I've always wanted to live in Alaska, but Texas will have to do for now. If you open a Chipotle there, that's definitely one more reason I should move. Love that place.
