A Year in the Life
Today is the official one year anniversary of the Big Move. One year since we packed up our lives and drove to this city of dreams (both broken and realized.) Twelve months since we left our dearest friends and family to forge new lives. Three hundred and sixty five days since we abandoned the hamlet of Santa Cruz, nestled between the ocean and the mountains, for the hard concrete desert.

I'm having difficulty dealing with the usual duality of time (it went by REALLY fast, and yet seems like we have been here forever,) and as I try to wrap my head around the milestone I'm remembering how much of a struggle it had been. Leaving my friends and family and home was one of the hardest things I've ever done, and without the (ample) support of my family, my friends (even the ones I felt like I was abandoning) and especially Julie, there is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn't be writing this post today. (So thanks everybody!)

We have come a long way in the last twelve months and, there is a long way still to go. But now that we have found the stability and have developed the necessary support-network we can keep-on moving towards our dreams.
