Happy Reasons, List One

I have more than four reasons why I'm happy I moved to Southern California. But for today, I'm focusing on these.

BEACH! Need I say more?
Japanese bookstore with a washi tape aisle.
Fresh squeezed orange juice from my own orange tree. And a husband who will squeeze it for me. Although I did bring that husband along. (Don't mind ugly 70s kitchen. It's a rental.)
Women who welcomed me with open arms even though we had just met a few weeks before. (In you case you are wondering, they are Stacy, Suzy, and Lisa.)
I'll be posting more lists of random Happy Reasons. It's better than sad reasons list for leaving Philly, right?

Happy Monday!

I think those are some very excellent reasons... so jealous of the beach and the orange tree!
Fun friends and washi tape (oooh!) are icing on the cake.

If I send you a box, will you send it back with some oranges? :P Feeling very envious of that tree right now as rain continues to drip down around here!

So glad that happiness in the form of welcoming friends and washi tape abound!

ooooh, the orange tree in your yard is amazing!!! We've had our juicer packed and just this weekend I spotted the box it's in and I almost died right on the spot thinking about juicing again! :) Mmmmm.

These are great reasons to love your new home! Especially the new friends part...:)

Sounds like a lot of good reasons to move to California...the beach alone would have been reason enough for me:)
Good to hear you also have friends that welcomed you!
