Bye-bye California!

Friday morning in the wee hours
of the darkness,
we'll be crossing State lines
with the Golden State in our 
rear view.



It will absolutely be a bittersweet
moment but we know that 
what lies ahead is going 
to be something we have longed for,
for such a long time.

The hard part will be leaving family
and friends behind.

The easy part: leaving the rat race.

Being in our 40's, 
we look so forward to the second half (or more)
of our lives.

We look forward to new friends,
 catching up and being closer to distant family
and
 a place to call home that 
feels like a vacation every day.

Sweet home Alabama.
That's where we will be.



See you when we get there!

Hugs and Love,
Amber

Oh girl! I am so going to miss you!
Really I will. My girls say hi and goodbye... I know that some day... we will hug again... maybe even sooner than we know/think... Praying for you and your family a safe and wonderful trip!
And how bittersweet it is... We did the out of state move once... and it is indeed a weird bittersweet feeling leaving your home, going to a new home.
(And BY THE WAY... I LOVE YOUR NEW HOME! IT IS SO YOU)

HUGS!!!!! FROM ALL OF US!

THANK GOD FOR BLOGGING AND TEXTING! LOL
