Goodbye California, Hello Pennsylvania!

For those who have been following our blog since the beginning, then you are aware that Roman and I have been doing long distance relationship since January of this year. I grew up most of my entire life in California and Roman is born and raised in PA. We were literally on opposite ends of the country. We had one of the biggest life changing events 12 days ago… I relocated here to PA and now Roman and I get to be together every single day!


Since the day I got here, everyone has been asking me how I like it here in PA and I can genuinely say I absolutely love it. The scenery is beautiful, kind people everywhere, and the weather is most certainly different from CA but I love it!

Meeting Roman’s parents and entire family for the first time was quite nerve wrecking at first (in a good way) but oh my goodness, they are the absolute sweetest people ever. His parents are amazing and are full of love and kindness. It makes sense because Roman is exactly the same and now I know where he gets his traits from! Lol Roman and his family have welcomed me in with open arms and I could not be any more grateful for all that they have done and continue to do every single day!

On my first night, they took me out to a nice fancy dinner at a restaurant called Isabella’s. The food were scrumptious and we all had a lovely time! It was great just being with him and his parents and I felt so comfortable being around them– as if it wasn’t my first time meeting them and I’ve known them longer! They truly made me feel like I’m part of the family.


This picture was taken on Saturday. We went out to dinner at a place called Barpazzo since it was highly recommended by many people. We went out with his best friend Donald who drove down from Rochester NY, Greg, his parents, and two aunts! It was so lovely meeting everyone and getting to know them. Like I said, every single person I have met has been so welcoming and loving!

On Sunday, Roman’s mom, Doni, cooked us a feast! The food were amazing!! She made lamb, chicken, cauliflower rice, tomato with mozzarella, and so much more. Plus all the dessert, oh my goodness we were all food coma by the end of the day.

A lot has definitely happened since my arrival and I could write about so much more but they will all be on separate posts!

I just want to thank again Roman and his sweet, loving family for welcoming me and pouring out nothing but love. I can’t wait to post many more of our adventures and the places we’ve been to since I got here!

Praise God for all the blessings and for making all of this possible!
