Launching Southern California Blog!!

Welcome to the launch of Southern California Blog!!

First, allow us to introduce ourselves.

Hey, everyone! Shelley, here! You may know me from my blog over at Hand In Hand.

I'm a California girl through and through. I was born here and have never moved out of state. I married my husband in 2007, we adopted our dog and bought our first home in 2010, and then we had a baby girl in 2011. I love living in California and I especially love raising our daughter here!

Hola peeps, I'm Lin!

Yep, that's me hanging out with my home-girl Lucy at Universal Studios last summer. We're close.

Enough bragging, lets move on to who I am...I've lived in So-Cal since forever, I mean, with all the fabulous things it has to offer why in the world would I ever leave?!  My husband and I met online 10 years ago and were married in Vegas a few years afterwards. No kids yet, but we do have a not-so-ferocious tortoise named Dexter. I've been blogging for the last 5 years and absolutely love the community and relationships it's given me. Hopefully this place will do just that for you, especially with all the awesome meet-ups we're gonna be setting up, but at the very least it'll be an entertaining read.

  1. Great blog! :)
    Lin, I did not know that you got married in Vegas! Originally we wanted to do the same but it did not work out!

  2. Nice to make your acquaintance!
    I'm a So Cal transplant and am still discovering the things I like about it (13 years later). I'm often homesick for the Pacific Northwest...
