Yes, what many of you already know is that I live my life like a gypsy. Never know how long I will be in one place for long. I used to hate this fact, however, I have since realized that I am pretty lucky in a sense. Lucky that I have been able to live in so many different places and experience so many different cultures from around this nation. Although I must admit that I do tire of this moving every now and then.
However, with this last move it sent us back to California and I obviously cannot complain. I feel as if California is the place where I really grew up. Sure I spent 19 years before that confined to the concrete, cookie cutter jungle that is Phoenix, AZ. But, throw a kid into the city of Los Angeles to go to college in their own apartment and they will grow up quite quickly. Which is why the lyrics in this song right back where we started from is oh so true. Where I began to see myself and where I met the hubby and well where I fell in love with the vast variety of cusines and food that is out there. Now with that said, I do not know how long I will be home, but I am enjoying every little moment of it!
Seeing that we had a "layover" on our way over for a couple of months in Birmingham (Not there again?! Yes, it was there again) we finally started to make our way back over to the Golden Coast, but not before a stop over in New Orleans. Man, do I love this town!
Prior to our arrival, our friends Rhett, Britany and their son Jake (who were also on the move back to California) bid on a room for us on Priceline and wouldn't you know, we scored this beautiful room at the Hyatt French Quarter for only $81 a night! Sweet! This means more money to go towards all those delicious and absolutely yummy foods and treats that New Orleans has to offer. Just a few more pics from our two day "layover"...
On our way back to the hotel, we hit up a camera shop as of course I couldn't resist the hubby tugging at my arm trying to get me into the store (Never been a huge shopper of things I can get back home while on vacation). My intent was to go with that ever versatile 50 mm/ 1.4f, however, I ended up going with a new macro 1.2 converter lens. Sure, a far cry from a 50 mm, but I'm actually loving it!
Of course as with most layover trips, it came to an end and that grueling task of actually having to drive from New Orleans to Los Angeles was put into place. As with most hubby's and moving, he was the one who did the driving. Okay, okay. I did a little bit too, but wake up will ya?!
As with most cross country moves, they can be quite straining. I would love to hear all about your crazy moving stories as we all know they can be quite funny looking back on. Note the looking back reference.
