Misty Watercolor Memories




We are relocating to L.A at some point in the future, and I'm already wondering if this part of my life will just be a misty memory (hence the post title). I kind of cant believe how unpredictable life is. Seven years ago I never in a million years would've thought I'd be living in New York, and now here I am moving on to yet another brand new adventure in sunny California. 

We've had such a great life here. This city opened up a whole new world for us that we never knew was out there. I truly believe that I'm leaving here a different person. I not only grew up quite a bit, but I also grew a set (of balls that is). 

I came here quite intimidated, actually, but I pushed myself to go out of my comfort zone and really explore not only this amazing city, but also myself.   I tried soooooo many new things, signed up for tons of different classes, and made so many great friends. I used to walk through the diamond district on my way to buy supplies with my head down, fearing eye-contact with the pushy dealers, and men yelling "we buy gold". Now I walk by at ease and occasionally say hello, and laugh at myself for thinking that New Yorkers were any tougher than people anywhere else. 

Soon we will create new memories with our new little family, but I feel positive that this time in my life will stay with me forever....don't worry though, I'll still be doing plenty of New York outfit posts (my hubs has to come back often for work and I 100% plan on joining him).

PS I love my watercolor dress above. You can get it

  13. I just realized how long it had been since I had visited and read your blog... moving to LA!
    I love how you mention that you grew a pair in NY! I have heard so many stories about NYers being tough, and whenever I have visited I have seen that most are pretty straight forward and have no time to waste. I guess big cities sometimes do that to you...
    So, maybe you had to come to NY to grow a pair and now you will go to LA and grab it by the balls.
