What brought you to Orange County? How did you decide on a neighborhood? What do you love most about it?

After a five-year stint living in LA, we decided to move back to where we grew up. Not only does The OC consist of pretty suburban communities with ample parking (you never take parking for granted again after living in a big city) and easy access to the beach, it has the best Asian food around, specifically Vietnamese food thanks to Little Saigon. I am Vietnamese and my husband is Caucasian but we both agree that Viet food is our favorite and it was nice to be back home where there's a pho restaurant on every block! Our neighborhood is very close to the freeway, surrounded by great food options, and is 15 minutes from the beach. I do miss the vibrant energy and culture of the city, but I can't exactly complain about the relaxed, easy lifestyle of these coastal suburbs.
