If you read my last post, you would of known why I haven’t been blogging but if you didn’t no biggie! My boyfriend and I took a trip to Indiana where we are from, our families live down the road from each other which makes it very easy for us to see everyone at the same time. I got to spend a lot of much needed time with my mom who is also my best friend in the whole world. I didn’t take many pictures and there’s a few reasons why but the main reason is, we spent most of our time with family and I didn’t want to turn my focus on anything else. It was almost a year since we have been back to Indiana and to be honest it was weird. When I moved to California I thought this place was by far the most gorgeous place I have been to and I still feel that way. I want to mention that I am in no way trying to put anyone down by saying this and if you live in Indiana and love it to pieces then that’s awesome! But.. after living in this beautiful place, being by the ocean, seeing the mountains and even the way this place smells.. I could live in California forever. Indiana used to feel like home, so many things happened there, family is there.. but it just doesn’t feel like home anymore. It’s a weird feeling when your childhood home doesn’t feel like home anymore. Nothing in Indiana has changed in case you haven’t been there in awhile and was just curious. There’s the same school that everyone goes to, the same family restaurant, the one walmart that people love to shop in, one main road that takes you into town and back. If I could pack up our families and move them to California I would do it in a heartbeat. We got back from our trip last night and so today we were able to take it all in again like it was our first time seeing it. I will not ever take this place for granted.
Up until I was in my 20s I moved around a lot and I mean a lot. I was born in Indiana, grew up in Nebraska, spent some time in North Carolina, went back to Indiana and switched houses between my parents. My older sister got married before a lot of this happened and she calls Nebraska her home, which is also a pretty awesome place to live! It’s flat but it’s still awesome. My sister asked me one day where I felt like my home was.. I told her I felt like I didn’t really have one (I had no intentions of making this sad by the way I just wanted you to see where I’m coming from). Now I feel like I can answer my sister’s question wholeheartedly without hesitation. My home is here in California.. and if you have never been here then you need to experience it for yourself just how amazing it is. Some people will rant off about the fact that there’s a lot of protesting here or that they hate it because celebrities live here or because they legalize things that not everyone is ok with. All you know is what the tv shows you and what people say, don’t listen to them. This place is truly amazing and I am so lucky to call it home.
