Its Not a Sacrifice if Its Not Felt

So my job search has led me to looking for different opportunities in different parts of this magical land called The United States.

This is a good thing and a bad thing. Good because a change of scene is always a good and productive thing, I love traveling, and there is still a lot of the world I haven't seen.

However, its bad because it means I might have to leave California.

California could possibly be the love of my life. I'm amazed by it everyday, it just gives and gives. It's the birthplace of almost all things amazing; Van Halen, Trader Joe's, George Lucas, The Hotel Cafe, Disneyland, happiness.

Like, take yesterday for example. My amazing friend Stephanie is on Spring Break from her arduous law school studies. We decided to get together and what did we do? Why go to the Huntington of course.

And we spent the day wrapped in this kind of light and wonderful

Not having this down the road will be heart breaking. Not to mention the blissful pastry at Federico's after or lovely that is Hamburger Hamlet. If I need to leave I will miss all of this dearly. That's all I'm saying. I know there are gardens and sunlight everywhere I could possibly go, even if I have to plant one myself, but my heart will literally crack a little. That's all I'm saying. I'm not afraid of it or not willing to go do it, but it is what will happen if it comes to that.

At least I have my wall paper worthy pictures right? I swear - Microsoft should hire me for their stock options. I'm awesome.

I felt much the same way about moves.

But the truth I found, which you would find quickly, is that love & beauty exists everywhere.

So does awesomeness...

I'm in a similar situation and I find the idea of leaving Cali tough also. I love the Huntington!! May I also add to the list Yosemite, Solvang, and the Mission Inn's Festival of Lights during Christmas time?
