Throughout this year I have had ups and downs, missed home, and realized I am never going back to NY. Something was always calling me to California. There were points in my life when I never thought I would have the courage and finances to move out here. I started to think it’s now or never, and made the plunge. Now, a year later I have never been happier. I am so thankful for all my friends, and wanted to celebrate my first year here.
