Oh hi! It's been a minute since I've updated, but it's mostly because I've been so busy with great work, friends and travels! So happy that this Spring has bustled by and we're already into the sweaty, muggy depths that are a Virginian July. My latest jaunt took me to Los Angeles, CA with my beloved boyfriend Georgiy. I had never been to the city, and was looking forward to our week stay in Venice Beach. We tried to cover all of the bases...from freak shows to studio visits...and holy moly were we busy. The weather was other worldly, the people were kind, and I probably drank more green juice than I have in my whole life. What was there not to love? I was so terrified I wasn't going to like the city since I've more or less been a 'small-town-gal' my whole life...but you guys, did you know there's a whole world out there?? I sometimes get so lost in everyday life/work that I forget about the amazing opportunities/cultures/scenery that exists in this vast planet we live on. I was blown away with the hustle of the city, and itching to get my feet wet.
Which brings me to my next 'announcement'...Geo and I have been toying with the idea of moving to the (Best) West Coast within the next year! There is just so much opportunity for work out there for the both of us...and we're still so young and want to go on a great adventure! I just keep telling myself if it doesn't work out I can come back...and it's true. I never thought I would still be in Richmond this long after college, so moving to another (be it ginormous) city seems almost natural. Lots of people (haters, cough...) keep telling me how much I'll hate it..the fake people...the traffic...the expenses...and so on...but I honestly really liked it. So much so that it kind of freaked me out. I can't put my finger on it, but it somehow reminded me of New Orleans and I instantly felt at ease. Maybe it was the mish mash of eclectic people and the creativity I felt happening everywhere..but I felt strangely comfortable. And after a week of going to the same coffee shop everyday and becoming more familiar with the city, I kind of felt like I already lived there. Who knows what will happen....but I'm just so ready to seize the next opportunity and explore what a big city has to offer. AHHHHH I FEEL NAUSEOUS TALKING ABOUT. To calm everyone's nerves here are some pictures from our trip!
