Well, I think it's time that I shared the big announcement. Immediate family already knows, so do jobs and schools, etc.
We are moving to Orange County.
Yup, out of the LA/South Bay area, and into the OC.
And while I'm excited, I am, I'm also a little sad. I've loved having my kids and starting our family here in the South Bay. It's been a wonderful community for us- both our neighborhood, our friends, and the jewish community that we are a part of.
But here comes the next chapter.
Working Dad got a great brand new job in Aliso Viejo. And it's great because we both grew up in the OC, and have so much family down there. Cousins, grandparents, Uncles, Aunts. They all live down in the OC. We travel down there almost every weekend, and this puts us even closer to by beloved Sister in Law and her 6 adorable kiddos.
Leaving this area is going to be hard. One of the things that I've loved about writing this blog has been that it's been a hub of information for the South Bay Jewish community. We are sort of a bit of a step-child when it comes to the greater Los Angeles community. It's rare to find any of the JCC's or the Jewish Federation, never mind the PJ Library hosting anything in the South Bay.
Which is what made it fun for me to connect all the South Bay jews together. TO get us out there to all the different events.
Well, we're not leaving today, but soon. I'll keep you posted as we start to explore the Orange County area.
