Hi all. After complaining about the winters (I've survived through) here in NY, I'm finally moving back to California! Yay! Warm moderate temperatures, beautiful beaches, San Francisco, crabbing/fishing, year-round mountain hiking, and delicious foods from every culture -- here I come!
Beach in Half Moon Bay
Beach in Santa Cruz
Another beach in Santa Cruz, and it comes with an old train track + a really old train!
Packing has been a pain, literally and figuratively. My arms are like spaghetti and my back is somewhat holding up. I've apparently accumulated a bunch of stuff while living with the hubby in NY, and you know how it goes. However, hubby will have to stay in NY for another year because he's in medical school, but he'll be doing his rotations in CA and we both really want to see our families again.

Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for most of my life, I'm sad to say that I really didn't appreciate its uniqueness, diversity, and Mediterranean climate as much as I thought I did, until I moved to NY. I guess the saying, "you don't know what you have until it's gone," rings true (so I'm learning to be aware of and to appreciate the good things I already have in life). I also didn't realized how nice and friendly everyone outside of NY was until I moved to NY :) But NY is also unique and diverse, in a different way. I think I'm going to miss a lot of things about it (especially the amazingly mind-blowing Italian pizza. I've had the luck of living in an Italian neighborhood and I've never had such good pizza before. I didn't even like pizza very much until I moved here! Oh yeah, and the fresh cheeses, dried/cured meats, etc.)

For now I'm still packing more stuff and being a bit too busy. Once I get settled down, I can't wait to start crafting and making new items again, as well as more treasuries.
Here are some more amazing finds on Etsy that remind me of home :)
That's the Bay Bridge in the background.
