Right around the corner

Hello and good morning. I hope everyone is having a good week and growing in a positive direction. Its 10:27am and I’m at work… again. But that’s ok! I’m grateful to have a job that provides for my wife and I (she works very hard too)

Sooooooo….
I’m moving to California in 10 days. Excited doesn’t even begin to explain how I feel about it. I’m ready for this new chapter in my life to get going. Its going to have a new job, new friends, new surroundings, and I’m sure a new set of problems to come with it.
But today I’m curious if anyone reading this has any experience with moving far away from your home town? What were some of the challenges you faced? What was easy/hard about it?

I think the hardest part for me is going to be not knowing how to get around town. I have lived in Louisville Kentucky for 27 years so when I need to get somewhere I know how. I’m going to have to learn a whole new set of neighborhoods and street names. Not to mention new freeways and traffic patterns.

Let me know what you guys think.

East meets west

Hello and good day to everyone. I hope all is well with you and you are continuing to grow in a positive direction. It’s 9:20am and I just arrived at the office. Today I want to share something very exciting with you. I call it “east meets west”.

East meets west (EMW) is going to be a vlog of my upcoming move cross country from Louisville Kentucky to Riverside California. My wife and I are leaving Louisville on June 27 2015 and will arrive in Riverside on July 2nd. Our stops include Kansas city Missouri, Denver Colorado, Albuquerque new Mexico,  Phoenix Arizona,  and finally Riverside California.

For lodging we have arranged stays using Airbnb. We have used this service in the past and really look forward to our stay in each city. We have lots of adventures planned and we’re excited about trying new foods. We are going to take our time with the drive. Most days only driving 7 or 8 hours.

I’m so happy to be sharing this adventure with all you and documenting it so that we can share it in years to come.  To be honest we almost decided to just fly, but what fun would that be. I’m counting down the days.
