Sierra Nevada Resort Real EstateThe slow life?

Driving up the 395 I start to relax as I pass through all the small towns as I head back to mammoth.  It has been 6 years since moving up here full time and every time I see the Sierras covered in white snow or wildflowers I smile knowing this is the place I call home. My husband and I still have a residence in Santa Monica but we go to less and less. When I first moved here I would go down once a month to surf, visit friends, shop and dine. From the moment I would arrive, I would be going a 100 miles and hour trying to squeeze it all in. However, over the years, I noticed I am not used to the faster pace, the traffic and the noise, so by the end of my trip I am always completely exhausted and suffer from sensory overload. Also, I am also not used to driving in traffic anymore so I break into a sweat the moment my tires get on the bumpy, super busy 405 freeway. I realized that when I first moved to Mammoth it was slightly hard to adjust to a slower life, but now, unbelievable, this town does not seem slow but seems normal. I was reminded of this other day when I spoke to my client and remembered why I moved here. It was 6pm and he was still at work and had worked throughout the weekend. I felt slightly guilty because at that moment I was sitting by the fire with my two children getting ready for dinner.  Since I am a mom, a wife and real estate agent my life is busy, but no matter what, it is slow by most standards. Sometime I get caught up and need a gentle reminder of how lucky I am.  In moving here I gained more time for myself, my family and friends. Mammoth is not perfect, but every now and then I remember all the reasons why I call it home.
