Things I'm Looking Forward to About Moving Back to California:

  • Shopping at Target. ON A SUNDAY. And buying diapers, cute and inexpensive clothes for Donovan, my favorite Neutrogena sunscreen, and cheap makeup that's actually cheap.
  • Method. 'Nuff said.
  • Farmers markets. Especially our old ritual of meeting up with friends at the market, working our way throug hthe stands, then going for a coffee down the block afterwards (too bad we won't get there in time for the summer strawberry season).
  • Donovan playdates with Audrey, Dana, and Sophia (goodness, he's gonna have his own little harem already!).
  • Mexican food. And Thai. And In-N-Out Burger. And sushi (that one's for Zach).
  • I know I'll miss the bread here, but it'll also be nice to have sliced bread again. And the stuff from the Acme stand at farmers markets wasn't bad, either.
  • Buying a gargantuan bag of kettle corn at the farmer's market, and eating through it all week long.
  • Krispy Kreme! (though will have to indulge less, now that we'll have an impressionable young mind- and body- to think of...)
  • Wanna go visit the grandparents for a weekend? Sure, it's only a 3 hr flight!
  • Rain? What's that?
  • Being able to use my cell phone whenever, without worrying about how much it costs.
  • Even better-- not having to worry about what time it is where when wanting to call my mom, sister, best friend, etc, back in the states.
  • Not having to worry about which language will be spoken where when dealing with health stuff for Donovan (or any of us, for that matter).
  • A clothes dryer. With lint catcher.
  • The public library.


  1. so much to look forward to!

  2. I agree with so many things on your list, especially Target, Mexican food and a dryer. A dryer. Sigh. And a dishwasher!

  3. I have been laughing with everyone about Donovan's little harem. I can picture it now- Donovan being chased by all these little girls in their dresses.
