“You cannot get to the end from the middle. No matter what we are doing, there is a process. When we rush ahead we miss important steps. If we become impatient, we can overlook details. We must be willing to move step by step, inch by inch to get to the end.” – Iyanla Vanzant
From Orange County, California to Orange County, Florida
My journey really began in my childhood growing up in Orange County, California, halfway between Disneyland and the beach. Rich’s journey began growing up near Wildwood, New Jersey and his migration west.
Our journey together began in the San Francisco Bay Area where we met and married. Thirteen years later, we’ve returned to the Bay Area, and we’ve decided to blog our Journey of following our dream of living in Florida.
Prologue: This Time Last Year: The Journey (what inspired me to blog the journey)
LEGS OF THE JOURNEY
The whole point of blogging the journey is to tell the story of how we originally got to Florida, living outside the gates of Disney World and working for Team Disney from California. We’ve also included the factors (emotional, spiritual, physical) that moved us along on that journey. Looking back, we can see that each leg had something new to teach us.
Leg One: San Francisco to Portland, OR (2000-2002)
Leg Two: Oregon to Ohio (2002-2003)
