November is one of my favorite months of the year. My darling husband was born, Thanksgiving, changing of the seasons, really there is nothing not to like about the month of November. I came across a new blog this morning, Chasing Happy, and loved her link-up.
The one experience that I will forever being internally grateful for is moving from Atlanta to Los Angeles 5 years ago. In high school when M told me he wanted to purse a career in Hollywood I knew it would mean leaving the only place I’ve ever lived. He was so passionate about his dream and I knew he was “the one” that I could never have said no. I didn’t want to be the girl who stood in the way of his dream. After 10 years of knowing we packed up my car two days after getting married and headed west to our new life.
Our first year was hard, really, really hard. I guess you could say the first 6 months I basically cried all the time and wanted to move home. We weren’t living the glamorous life I thought LA would offer. As time passed I became more comfortable living here and making it our home. We have amazing friends here and a job that I love! At this time in my life I can't imagine living anywhere else.
Sometimes I like to play mind games with myself and imagine what our life would be like if we moved back or stayed in Atlanta. It’s a great life, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not the life for us. LA is home for us now and probably forever or at least until M makes it big and we can build our ranch in Montana. Either option will do.
