Los Angeles, California

Its officially been almost three weeks since we moved to California and I must say they have flown by. Since we landed we’ve been non stop busy and I’m really hoping that things settle down soon. An idea of what we’ve been up to:

  • Visited with old friends
  • Made some new friends
  • Ate at In-n-Out burger
  • Went to a surprise party
  • Ate macarons at Bouchon Bakery
  • Toured a million apartments
  • Did laundry 50 times (we only have 1 suitcase of clothes!)
  • Went to an “unlimited mimosa” brunch
  • Decided on an apartment in Marina Del Rey
  • Ate at Blue Plate Taco… twice
  • Went hiking in the Pacific Palisades
  • Fired/Hired yet another car shipping company
  • Took a quick work trip to St. Louis
  • Highlighted my hair super blonde

I feel so disoriented and out of place, but we’re moving into our new apartment on Monday and I hope things start to settle down and feel normal soon.  I just got a box of clothes in the mail (thanks Kathy!!) and I can’t wait to finally wear something other than the same 2-3 things everyday.  And my car should be arriving soon! The new shipping company we found ships via boat through the Panama Canal — so I am just hoping that by end of week next week it shows up and it didn’t get lost in the Bermuda Triangle!! So here’s to a successful move-in week at our new apartment in Marina Del Rey!

New Beginnings…

Remember when I mentioned that Doug and I had some huge news to share? We’ll we finally got the green light to let the cat out of the bag… we’re moving to California! Doug was given this great job opportunity, so we put our house up for sale and we’ll be heading west to Los Angeles right after the new year.

I have mixed feelings about leaving Newburyport. I really love it here! And I am so sad about selling my house. But as the move gets closer and closer, I’m trying to really think of this as an adventure. We have a long list of west coast places we want to visit, and I know a few winters without snow will be more than welcome.

We don’t know how long we’ll be in California or whether we will even like it or not, but come January we’ll be embarking on our west coast adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along. I’m sure someday we’ll be back, but for now I’m just soaking up ever last chilly minute here in Newburyport before we leave.

PS. Coat is by Vince from last winter, but a similar one is available here.
