Saturdays Around the World

It's time for Saturdays Around the World, brought to you by the wonderful Amanda at Amanda and Don. Anyway, when thinking about what I wanted to write about this morning, Saturdays Around the World is what gave me inspiration.

Everyone knows that I live in Southern California, and it makes me sad that so many people have such negative stereotypes about the area. So, I wanted to let you all know why I love where I live {and why I don't want to live anywhere else}.

I love where I live...

Because it's five minutes from here:

 
And an hour away from here:

 
 

And I can easily go here on a Saturday night:


And I grew up only fifteen minutes from here:

 

And I can spend the day here if I want:


And tomorrow, I get to go here:

And here:

What about you? Do you love where you live as much as I do?

Much love,

OK, it's official - I am envious! I love where I live because Alpha Hubby is here - where he is, I'm happy. But I'd sure love the ocean tucked in there, too! Beautiful pics! Visiting LBS Tea party!

I love it! I love living in So. Cal. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

Visiting from the lady bloggers! Have a sunny weekend!

...I kinda love where I live.
It's a smaller town, but not surrounded by fields unless you go in certain directions. A few blocks away from a cute knick-knack coffee shop.
Kinda lovely:)

That's awesome! My husband and I recently moved to Northern California and we love it! It's pretty different, but we love all the places we can go!

Aww, I love this post! Sometimes we get so used to the area that we live in that we no longer appreciate it. But you have certainly not forgotten to love where you live! :)
