Well, now that we have been here for a little bit of time, I wanted to make a list of the biggest differences between life in Utah and life here in Southern California (remember we have not been here that long, these are mostly observations):
-I've never seen so many luxury cars. They are everywhere. And most of the other cars look nice/clean. I guess that's what happens when there isn't salt on the road for 6+months of the year.
-The weather here is weird. Much too warm, I still can't believe it's January here. But I'm not going to lie, I love wearing flip flops. I definitely like hearing that it snowed in Utah while I have my ceiling fan on and windows open.
-I feel like an individual here. There are so many different kinds of people and nothing to conform to, it's actually very liberating.
-Not having laundry in our apartment is a pain, and expensive. It is a necessity, so hopefully I will get used to it and have a good system.
-It's not so humid that I can't straighten my hair, but my skin is softer and the girls eczema is pretty much non-existent.
-I love the beach, but miss the mountains.
There are so many differences, but these stick out to me the most. We are doing well and already have planned our first trip home to visit family so that gives me something to look forward to. Everyday is different for my emotions. One day I love it here and feel very accomplished, other days I am unmotivated and feel really down. The girls are doing great and growing fast. Hope you all are doing well!
