a little something i should tell you

I won’t beat around the bush about this one. We’ve been together long enough so here it is…drum roll please… Steve and I are packing up the girls and heading west…to San Diego. Just typing that seems surreal. Steve and I have talked and day dreamed about living in San Diego for years now. We love the city so much that we even got married there. I think we both never really thought it would happen but here were are, surrounded by boxes, freaking out a little and living off take out food. This fantasy just became reality real quick!

So you may ask yourself how does one celebrate a momentous occasion like this. Well if you just finished watching the Great Food Truck Race and were inspired by the winners then you drive to your nearest In N Out, ordered a grilled cheese animal style, pile it high with french fries and then make a complete mess of the table and yourself by gorging on this fried saucy masterpiece,  washing it down with a coke.

Now you can understand why I’ve disappeared for the last couple of weeks. Preparing for this journey has been nothing short of bittersweet. Vegas has been our home forever and leaving our friends and family has been a lot harder than we could have ever anticipated but the good news is that we are a quick hop, skip and a four hour drive away! Plus, who wouldn’t want to visit San Diego…it’s pretty much one of the most perfect places on the planet!

I’ll still be transitioning for a couple more weeks – starting a new job and finding a place to live will keep us busy for a little while but when I come back I’ll be brimming with new and wonderful fall recipes for you!

in the meantime, please enjoy these great reads and amazing recipes.
