Photo Fun Day Friday – Cross Country Move Edition

Share This

[imagebrowser id=1]


This is a unique Photo Fun Day Friday for many reasons. First it is my first post from our new home here in Long Beach, California and secondly, it is a TON of photos (long overdue, I might add). We left Buffalo on Saturday, February 23, nearly two weeks ago for our cross-country move to Long Beach, CA. It was 7 long days of driving with lots of fun, adventures and unplanned stops along the way due to weather. We had to change up our original route due to Winter Storm Rocky, but we made it here safe and sound last Friday. We have been unpacking like crazy and trying to get this place all set up to feel like home, so we could get back to work asap! I got my kitchen unpacked earlier this week and I have NEVER been happier to see my stuff. It had been packed up since around January 5th! I have already made quite a few trips to various grocery stores and a farmers market to get all stocked up. I finally cooked my first real meal for us last night (I made a version of my Thai Chicken Soup) after lots of take out, salads, sandwiches and snacks all week long. Tonight I am even hosting our first dinner here, with our friends Patrick and Summer. I cannot wait, this house was made for entertaining.

Once we are a bit more settled, I plan to do a fun photo post to give you a tour of the new house and neighborhood, so look for that soon. Wait until you guys hear about all of my fruit trees and the farmers marker in walking distance. I am dying! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the photos from our road trip, I decided to go with a gallery this time so make it a bit easier to view. I know it isn’t perfect, the photos are all taken on an iPhone (since my SLR was safely packed away) and some view a little large for the page, but it works (I hope).

Oh and don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about the yummies!! I hope to get back to the recipes in the next week or so, and I also have some fun product reviews and other goodness for you guys. So stay tuned. Thanks for your patience in this transitional time for me, it was great reading all of the comments both here and on Facebook. I cannot wait to get back to creating in the kitchen and sharing my recipes!!



Here are all photos from above as thumbs, so you can pick and choose what you’d like to see larger. In case you don’t wanna page through them all.

    Great pictures! I loved the one of Seri watching tv and the one of Mark’s Boob Mountains. How did you get the one taken with you and Mark smooching? Cute. Glad you made it ‘home’ ok–looking forward to more to come! xoLinda

    HI 🙂

    I loved this post and enjoyed all of the pictures. I especially love Seri watching tv in the hotel room ( great paws 😉 and yoga at The Grand Canyon!

    My husband and I ( of 24 years) And Boxer pup, Fenway are moving from Massachusetts ( life-long) to Colorado after our youngest graduates form high school in May. Seeing your pictures has me so excited for our road trip! Was it hard to fins hotels that accomodated the pups? We want to visit things along the way, but are worried about this.. Seeing your pics has made me more hopeful that it shouldn’t be an issue.

    I am so excited for you! I found your blog recently and love it. I eat very similare to what you describe ( only recently GF) so I am excited to see more posts!

    enjoy your new home!

      Hey Anne, thanks! The cats, yes two, will be flying out to us at the end of this week. Seemed to be the least stressful on them, since it would just be about 12 hours of stress, versus one whole week of driving. This way our home will be all set up and homey and ready for them to just arrive and get settled back into their lives. I cannot wait to see them. They are flying with United Airlines on their PetSafe program. Thanks again.
