I always craved adventure outside of my hometown in East Texas. As an adult, I’ve lived in WI, TX, NJ, and NY…until…
in 2014, my boyfriend and I left NYC to move to Los Angeles and start a new life together. During our 16 months living in SoCal, we had bad fights, soul-sucking tension, but also great moments like visiting the Grand Canyon for the first time, attending a taping of Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show…TWICE! However, L.A. brought out the WORST in us. I loved the beaches & mountains but hated the lack of good Chinese takeout or real pizza, a CONSTANT presence of vapid millennial clichés, lack of any personality, no one dressing well, and horrific traffic. L.A. wore me down and crushed my spirit…yet he LOVED Los Angeles and Hollywood inspired his dreams.
As of JULY 2016, we’re back living in NYC after spending 6 months living 1,500 MILES APART.
No matter how much we fight, we agree the best part of Los Angeles was finding our precious tortoiseshell cat named Puff who has sweet tortitude. Puff currently resides with me, her doting mama. I love her so much I cannot find the words! She is such a good, sweet spirit. My friend Krista said Puff is my animal guide. If so, I am lucky. Puff is so special, loving, and peaceful. I have a Flickr album dedicated to her!
