Sigh. Grab a glass of wine, we'll sit back and dream you all the way to CA...

I hear ya. It takes some of us a lonng time to accept the place that is not our first home. It took me nearly 7 years! Now, I've been back home for 15 years and I can hardly wait to return to the second home. Go figure.

I think all of us in snow country are CA dreaming about now! So glad for you and hubby-you are right to not let anything stand in the way of happiness. And you are brave.

Good for you! Nothing holding you there with the princess in CA. I know it is hard to start over. I sorta feel that way about friends and family still in Texas. It is hard to make those great friends that you have had for years. I don't know if it ever happens. Been here (WA State) 20 years but still wonder. My kids and grandbabies live near me so I can handle it. New grandbaby in Utah but only 1 hour 30 minute flight. I understand....be happy girl. Yay for you and hubby ....Ca. bound!

I feel your pain. We went through very similar situations, over and over again, every one to three years for about ten years. It was a terribly difficult time for me. I even began to wonder if I had married the wrong man, not because of him, but because I couldn't stand some of the places we moved to. We are finally settled and grateful to have had a job in one place for 15 years, but as I look back I really miss those days. What wonderful people we met. What beautiful places we visited and what great experiences. There are some places I don't miss, but there are others that I still dream about in my sleep I miss them so much.

Hang in there. The Lord is mindful of you. The best is yet to come. I have noticed that over the years each situation got progressively better, or maybe it is just that I learned to be happy where I was at.

Good luck and remember, "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful!"

By the way, please drop by and visit my blog where I am also in the process of doing a hexagon quilt, only mine is a grandmother's flower garden. They take so much time, but I love it.

I just read your post about coming back here. I started reading your blog shortly before you left, so most of my following has been while you've been there. Let me be the first to say (okay, maybe not the first)...Welcome back!!! :-)
Btw, the first concert I ever went to was the Beach Boys at the Forum :-)
Blessings,
