Trend Setting

Am in California. (Burglars Beware! New burglar alarm is set and working!) Looked at 14 houses yesterday, 13 today. Am struck by people's ability to fold their bathroom towels into unique shapes and marvel at how neat people's closets are. Have seen Pacific ocean. Have eaten at Taco Mesa. Have been on every Disneyland ride imaginable (Dumbo twice!).

In some ways, it feels like I never left California. Then, Matt and I have giggle fits by counting seven white Mercedes outside a Starbucks. One of the biggest blessings about moving to Houston was extricating ourselves from the materialistic lifestyle that pervades Southern California. We've only been here two days, and we have to remind ourselves not to buy back into that again. I'll show em'. Honda mini-vans can be cool too.

You'll always have the coolest Ms. Kristen's blue car in our books. (Ian still spots them too - we sure do miss you)
