I didn’t intend on moving to California in my 30s, but you tend to do things when you fall in love that you would have never done otherwise.
I met my wife in college when we were students living in the northeast.
My family was from that state but my wife’s folks were from southern California, which is where she would go during holiday breaks from school. One semester she asked me if I’d like to accompany her to her parents’ house for a holiday gathering. My own family was supportive and told me to go and have as much fun as possible. Her parents’ main house was in Tarzana on Rosita St, but they had a beach house at the time in Malibu. Seeing the Pacific ocean for the first time was an experience that I will never forget. Even though we weren’t married yet, I told my wife back then that I’d move to the Los Angeles area with her in a heartbeat if she ever intended on moving back. Now that we have our own house in Tarzana, I can’t imagine ever living anywhere else. While there are thousands of cannabis dispensaries throughout the state of California, we’re lucky to have a good number of quality weed stores in Tarzana, especially on Ventura Blvd. I made the mistake the other day of smoking a joint I had just bought at a Tarzana weed store before heading over to Norman’s Rare Guitars for what was supposed to be a short visit before heading home from work. Since I was so high from my pre-rolled joint, I quickly lost track of time and ended up browsing Norman’s Rare Guitars for two hours. My girlfriend called me and was afraid that something bad had happened. When I realized how late it was, I couldn’t believe so much time had elapsed!
