Hello California!

Alright friends. It's truth time. I feel I owe my readers, if I have any left, an explanation to my prolonged absence. As you may recall, I was laid off my full time office job last October. It was pretty life shattering and looking back on it, it is more than clear that it put me into a bit of a depression. Probably somewhere around two months ago I also received word that the school I had been coaching cheer at no longer had the funds to pay my position come the end of this school year. Needless to say, I was devastated. Getting laid off two jobs in six months was far from fun for me. I had a long time to think about what I wanted to do with my life and had considered many things including moving out of state, maybe even out of the country.

Then the light at the end of the tunnel arrived.

Recently I landed a job as the community coordinator for Any long time reader of my blog knows how passionate I have been about this site for a long time! In fact, my kaboodle profile tells me I've been on there since January 17, 2007. You seen me talk about kaboodle many times on this blog, clearly I'm a big fan. So I'm pretty stoked to have this opportunity to join the Kaboodle team and do something that I've been passionate about for so long!

So this is the reason for my recent to move to California, this is where Kaboodle headquarters are located. I'm stoked to be out here and I already love the place. I can't wait to start my new job tomorrow!

Monday, my sister, dad and niece drove me and my belongings out to Sunnyvale. Many of you may have followed this roadtrip on my Twitter. I took many, many photos that day and would like to share them with you in the form of a slideshow.

...and as long as we're on the topic, I think you should all sign up for an account on Kaboodle and check it out. It's been my favorite website for years, maybe it's time you find out why! Be sure to add me as a friend when you do!

Ah, the road out of Utah to the West. Sage brush and salt. California does look like Parley's a little I think. And that Hadlee is one cutie pie.
