Orange County is a coastal community in southern California about an hour from hustle of LA. Here you’ll find a lot of beach communities, tons of beauty salons, amazing shopping and of course Disneyland.
I am a southern California girl born and raised and spent 15 years in Orange County. Orange County was where I met my husband and had both of our children. Even though I currently call Hawaii home, Orange County will always have a special place in my heart and will always feel like home.
My very first blog I created was “thatocmomlife” and OC is where it all started! Here you’ll find all of my original articles and hopefully some new ones along the way as we continue to visit and travel.
How it all started
I believe that every article is personal. The connection we have with the community determines how the articles will look at the end of the writing process. I must understand the community and bond with them, be a part of their dream. Their dream is my dream.
