One year ago today

We travelled 517 miles from San Jose, CA to Needles, CA on our way to Chicagoland. (you can read about our journey and see the loads of photos we took Here.)

It was an adventure driving across the country, seeing crazy desolate beautiful landscapes and kitsch route 66 landmarks all the while wondering "what the heck am I going to do when we get there?" WW had accepted a job in Chicagolandia, a place I'd never been- we packed up our places and drove across the country to the windy city.

It all seems like a blur now. I can't believe how it's already been a year since we left California to move here. And so far, as much as I miss California, I'm really thankful for all I've gained in Chicagoland.
