Having lived in Southern California all of my life, I've practically got California pride and love flowing through my viens. I love the very suburban area my family lives in, the beach that is so close, the city, the coast, the mountains, everything. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Last fall when I first came to Idaho, I cringed at the flat land and the mountains far off on the horizon and the fields of potatos surrounding Rexburg. I thought to myself, "Why did I pick Idaho?". Now, after having been here for a year, I know why. It's beautiful. It's different from California, but it's beautiful in a different, more rural kind of way. I love it.
