8 Years Ago....

Eight years ago today I boarded an airplane to start my new life in California. My life forever changed....

I remember that day very well. My mom and I worked for the same company at the time. She drove me to the office to meet my Michigan boss to fly to CA. He was going to be spending a few weeks in CA, while the new office opened. I loaded my 2 big suitcases into the car, tearfully hugged my mom good bye and set out on my journey. 

I remember that flight...I never thought it was going to end. I ended up dumping an entire cup of coffee on my new coach leather purse. Do you know that purse never showed the coffee stain! Best investment. lol

My entire move to CA was a nightmare. The movers stole my debit card, stole all my money, packed all my belongs with candles, broke stuff....ugh the list goes on. I remember thinking what in the world did I just do, as one thing after another happened. I was 2000 miles away from my family, living on my own for the first time, no money, candle wax all over my shoes, and a new boss who SCREAMED. 

I remember weeks before the move going on walks almost nightly praying and asking God if I should move. I was so scared to make a huge mistake. I just wanted a big sign to drop down from heaven that said MOVE or STAY. Well my big sign never dropped.....I felt I should move. I needed a change in my life and this was my chance. The worst thing that could happen was I would hate it and I would move back home. 

That one decision changed the rest of my life.
