I'm sitting at my desk watching the warm Southern California sun cast dancing shadows across my Macbook screen. Shaking my head, I'm thinking...never in a million years did I think I would be sitting here. A sparkling pool right outside my window, snow capped mountains in sight, (Bette Midler, anyone?) chilly evenings and warm afternoons year round.

Still, never even dreamed that I would be here.

But here I am, a year and a half later, and I have to say...


Don't get me wrong. I'm going back to my homeland someday, Tennessee, that is. Just not today.

In this season of thanksgiving, here are thirteen things that I am thankful for living in Southern California.

-Daily dosage of sunshine
-The ocean
-Bonfires on the beach
-Churros (Ps-didn't even know what that was until I moved here)
-FroYo!! (See above comment)
-The abundance of parks
-Being within driving distance of some of the most amazing geological creations
-Disneyland (Come on, it's awesome and you know it :)
-Breathtaking views of the city
-Standing still, with the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other
-Having an amazing job that made this move possible
-Being blessed with the most incredible friends a girl could as for

There you have it! Of course I have a million other things to be thankful for, but I thought I'd give some props to my Cali experience thus far.
