This Place I Now Call Home

WOW
 I can't believe it has been 6 years since I left my hometown of 19 years to live in the PNW. I left San Jose, California and moved to the state of Washington on December 25th, 2012 to start a new chapter with (my now Hubby) Eric, after 2.5 years in a LDR. (story on that here
As the good old saying goes, Home is Where the Heart Is... and my heart has made its home in this small farm town of Prosser, Washington.

Eric and I moved to Prosser in September of 2014. We are just 30 minutes away from his hometown of Pasco, Washington (where most of his family resides). We chose to move and buy a home further out because we loved the idea of living in a smaller town, and job opportunities for the both of us had also aligned.

One of the many question I get asked when I meet new people is, 
"How have you adjusted to life in Washington?"
I can honestly say it wasn't too difficult. Unlike life in the city, you live life at a slower & stress free pace here. This is one of the main reasons I don't think about ever moving back to California. There may not be many materialistic things in this small gem of a town (Or even its surrounding cities compared to SJ), but peacefully living the simple life with my husband and dogs by my side is the key to my happiness, and my biggest blessing. I feel God truly called us to start our lives here, and I look forward to growing a family in this small town we made our home.

Prosser, Washington is a small town with a population of no more than 6,500 people, a single high school.. Home of the Mustangs, no shopping mall, and a downtown you can drive through in a blink of an eye. Don't get me wrong, although it may be smaller in size compared to the big city, that's actually one of the things I cherish most about this town. The small population makes it a tighter knit community, (plus NO Traffic is a win!). Instead of a mall we have small shops and boutiques, so we shop local to support our community. Our downtown isn't filled with skyscrapers, but its historic buildings take you back to the 20th century, and there is always some sort of entertainment going on. 
You can think of Prosser as the Napa of California. It's in the Heart of Wine Country here in Washington, and also the birthplace of Washington wine. Prosser is also "among the nation’s richest agricultural regions with abundant fruit, livestock, orchards, vineyards, produce, and wheat fields surrounding the community". There are many events hosted throughout the year like the "Spring Barrel" in April, "Bottles Brew & Barbecue" in June, "Beer and Whiskey Festival" in August, and my favorite "The Great Prosser Balloon Rally" in September. 
I am so looking forward to attend and share these events with you all throughout the year. Check out the link below to get a little taste of Prosser.
