Breezy Days: Goin' Home

Goin' Home

April 25, 2012
I've been pretty much in denial that we are heading back to Utah tomorrow.
It has been SO NICE here in So-Cal, why the heck don't I live here?

Oh ya... we got cheap tuition, cheap living, and some awesome possum amigos in Utah.
*Sighhhh*
One day, California or Texas here we come!
I wore this ensemble to my home ward on Sunday for church.
A ward, for all you non-LDS peeps, is when you are divided up by the area you live in, and you go to church with the people who live in your same area.
 I'm in the Lake Elsinore Ward, and my "home ward" is made up of the people who live in the city of Lake Elsinore and some people from Corona.

I've lived in this ward from 8 years old on up!
Meaning that many of the same adults and families have been in my ward for years and years, and have seen me grow up, go to college, and get married.
It's always weird coming home, don't get me wrong, it is always feels good to come home.
But I always feel like it was a different life.
I was a different person, with different thoughts, who made different decisions.
So much different from the person I am today, it's amazing how much you can change in 3 years.
I've since moved on.
Creating my own life up in Utah, with school, responsibilities, and my 'lil family. 
One of my favorite parts though, is coming to my home ward, and meeting/talking with all the adults I grew up with. They tell me how great of a woman I've grown up to be.
Which makes me so happy, knowing that I'm on the road to be the best person I can be.
Plus the fact that other people can just see how happy I am without me having to say it, speaks volumes! {Cause hellooooo, my husby is hot. And fun. Wassup.}

Totally awesome outfit! I loooooooove that necklace, works so well!

I still live at home (Derp) But I switched highschools from the one in my neighbourhood to a farther one though, and because of that I only have a few friends from my childhood. So when I do go to their houses and spend time around their parents there is definitely some of that!

Cute dress!!

I love going home! Driving around all the familiar places, seeing people you haven't seen in a while and catching up. I usually go visit some of my favorite teachers I had growing up too which makes me feel so old!
