After a few weeks of upheaval, I’m finally settled in Orlando. It’s good to be back! I grew up here and at 17 I was desperate to go somewhere, anywhere, far from home. California was calling to me! I left and never looked back. Now I’ve returned and I realize it isn’t as bad as I remember. Yes, it’s hot, yes it’s humid and there are big bugs, but I have such a wonderful family and so much support here – something I didn’t appreciate when I was a teenager, but now I understand that’s what’s the most important!
