The “Before we leave California” list

Hello All,

We have been putting together a list in the last month of things that we would like to do before we leave California. On our list are things like go to Malibu, take pictures on the Colorado bridge, visit the Griffith Observatory, and go to a Dodgers game. Well this week we were able to cross off the Dodgers game.

It was so much fun! We went with our community group from church and it was great time spent enjoying time with friends. Jeff loved it and is really pushing to for us to go to another one before we leave.

We also took time last weekend to spend an afternoon at the beach. We are going to miss being 45 min from the beach and we are trying to take advantage of that. On our way down, we were discussing how we use the beach to “escape” a bit. We have done that since college, but that was a 4 hour drive to Savannah. It will be interesting how we adapt to new places and what we do to “escape” the daily stress a bit. We love going to the beach and spending time with God and with each other. Sometimes we need a little bit of a get away to talk about the fears, stresses, and joys we are feeling about life and redirect those to the Lord in thanksgiving.

Also, I am making a list (Can you tell I am a type A personality) of steps we need to take to prepare ourselves for out move to Romania and to help keep track of what we needed to do for the future. Who knows when we will move like this again or if we can share our list with others moving to another country. Anyway, I would love suggestions for our list. What do you ship/pack? Insight on moving? Maybe once I have more of a list I will post it for you.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Lauren
