What it’s really like to drive cross country from Florida to California

Wow! I can’t even believe it… Sean and I have been San Diegans for a whopping 13 days. We are FINALLY settled in, and our place is fabulous! More to come on our perfectly located condo in Cortez Hill, but if I can just say one thing, our view is on fire! Not only do we obsess over it on the reg, but the Tuck man is also in love. He has fully mastered the concept of city-living, people watching, and basking in the endless amounts of sunny yet perfectly breezy days.

Our road trip…oh the memories…it was LONG, fun, and full of Taylor Swift…Shake it off…Shake it off…only 36 more hours of driving to go! OH God. We enjoyed it.

I honestly cannot continue without giving the BIGGEST and BEST of props to my chauffeur of an amazing fiance, Sean. He drove 33 out of our 36-hour drive. Not only is he a keeper, but he is an angel sent from God to make our drive full of cabin fever or should I say “car fever” less daunting. But HEY, I offered to drive at least 3x each day. My gentlemanly fiance only let me drive when he mentally and physically needed a break. Somehow, he couldn’t seem to close his eyes and relax when I was driving…I dont understand? I am a GREAT driver! lol.

We segmented our drive over 4 days and 3 nights.

DAY ONE: West Palm Beach, Florida to New Orleans, Louisiana

Ready, Set, DRIVE TO CALIFORNIA

I can’t believe the day is finally here. Sean and I are up-rooting our Floridian lives, our precious little pup, and making the cross-country drive to California. About a year ago, Sean and I visited San Diego, and we knew instantly we had to live there. There comes a point in your life when something just clicks, you go from being a dreamer to a doer. Don’t get me wrong, I will always be a dreamer, but the most vital part of being a dreamer, is transforming those dreams into actions.

if-your-dreams-dont-scare-you-they-are-not-bigI have really taken the quote above to heart these days. It has become my new life mantra. As a little girl, I always dreamed of moving to California, and wow I am actually doing it. Sean and I have amazing things ahead of us, and the great thing about it is that it’s all new! I think that is what we love about it the most. We finally have the opportunity to really start a new chapter with new traditions together. We are building our dreams from the ground up, and of course it’s scary, and we will miss our family and friends so much, but he is home to me, and our new home is California. I couldn’t be more excited to build a new life with this incredible man by my side. WE ARE SO EXCITED. photo 1 (1)
