Then & Now
It’s official. I’ve spread my wings and landed in Los Angeles, California. Please excuse the blogging absence. In my defense, I’ve been really, really busy updating life’s moments on my other go-to social platforms. Eh, hem Twitter and Instagram. Having said that, I have a renewed effort to jump back into writing more than 140-characters, just for you.
Today marks my first 2-months of a move that I prefer to call a good ‘ol fashion adventure. It was on this day in January that I had packed up the ruby red Corolla and headed west. Fast forward to now, two moves later, and I’m happy to say that I never underestimate the power of traffic, parking meters or public signs. It’s not that I want to highlight the negative but I have discovered that LA isn’t nearly as friendly as other cities. If people honk, make gestures or get out of their car to confront, I’ve learned there’s no need to take it personally. I can happily keep driving and focus on the fact that I’m not the crazy one.
As for positives, there are plenty. Good people and the beach. Remind me to tell you about my LA Galaxy experience. Excitement really started when David Beckham hit the field. Lucky Posh Spice.
Did you catch the ‘now’ pic of me waiting to do laundry like a real LA person does? It seems a washer and dryer in a unit are hard to come by, which means I’ve gotten really good at patiently waiting for the mom’s in my complex to run their family’s loads. Emphasis on patiently. To my own mom, you’d be proud.
So here’s to more timely updates mostly consisting of Camera+ snaps and FYI tidbits about life on the coast. Prepare yourself for food-recommendation overload and pretty pictures of the sky when the sun hits it just right.
