This is my hardest move ever. No questions asked, I DID NOT want to leave the "Golden State." I had made tons of friends, and I love the weather, culture and community. However, like a good "military brat" I packed up and drove East. Yes, we drove. . . it was an exciting trip that I will never forget. We went through California to Arizona (Grand Canyon), then to Texas with a pit stop in Alabama (to visit relatives). Lastly we went up to Washington D.C. - our new home.
