Life is a highway, I'm gonna ride it all night long

Today I have been thinking about life. I know, right? That's a totally random subject to think about.

Mostly I was thinking about how you can plan your "life goals and aspirations," and even more, you can work hard at them to get to where you think you are supposed to be going. But the irony comes when what you thought you were supposed to be doing actually isn't what you are meant to be doing. Ok Camille... where are you going with this? Let me explain.

All throughout my college days at BYU I busted my butt to graduate from the accounting program and land a great job. Well hey! I did it! I was fortunate enough to get offered a position with the International Tax group at PricewaterhouseCoopers in the San Francisco office. Great location, great job, great opportunities, great pay, great experience, the whole shebang. Starting date? Oh... THAT WOULD BE TODAY. I was supposed to start this job in San Francisco TODAY! Now seeing where I am right now (besides in my room in the Enclave), I am about to get married to the love of my life in 2 weeks and 2 days, where we will then proceed to move to... Texas!

I never in a million years thought I would end up in Texas--but you know what? I am pumped for it. San Antonio sounds amazing, and it will be even more amazing to start this new adventure with Russ. Both options--starting a fast paced career in a bustling financial district and moving to a slower-paced city in the heart of Texas--are great. Either lifestyle would be great.

Life is a ride with twists and turns you can never predict. You may think you know where you are headed until the road of life takes a very unexpected turn. Luckily for me, it was the luckiest turn in the world.

Hi,
I was blog hopping (I can't even really remember how I got here!) and I found this post. My husband and I lived in San Francisco for the last 6 years, and we just moved to Texas about 3 weeks ago. Both places are fabulous, but you will really love Texas. Any place you end up is great, as long as you are with your best friend. Good luck with everything!
