Getting to California - Day 1

Today we started our journey driving out to California - to officially move there. It is bittersweet, yet surreal. I can’t believe this is actually happening. But here we are, in a motel in small town Nevada, only 9 hours from our final destination. I have to keep reminding myself that this isn’t a vacation, but a move and we are headed to our new home. It is a lot to take in.

The drive today was good. Dave and I enjoyed listening to a murder mystery audio book which made the time fly. Gromit seemed to do well in the car for so long, but he sure is sleepy now!

Despite the mixed emotions I am really excited to arrive at our new home tomorrow - together, as our little family of three. Goodnight!


  1. I love listening to books on tape for long car rides. Funny story, when I graduated from college and moving cross country for a job, my mom came out to help me drive. She picked out a murder mystery for us to listen to and it turned out to be a little sexy. The look on her face was so priceless. She was so embarrassed. Cute Mama. I hope moving is a fun adventure for you. I know how nervous you are, and it can be totally scary to be in a new place. But, I hope California turns out to be a good fit for you two!

  2. Hope you made it to California safe and sound! Look for something in the mail in the next few days!!
