I’m finally jumping on the blogging bandwagon (albeit so late it might have already jumped the shark). In the last few months, there has been a tremendous amount of change in my life and I figured what better way to document it than a blog. Furthermore, I left all my friends in San Francisco and need to think that someone is listening to me talk. 🙂
I anticipate that this blog will focus on interior design and learning to love & live in Southern California. I recently left my career as a corporate attorney to begin an interior design firm, Joy Street Design, and moved to Los Angeles (after being in San Francisco for almost 10 years).
When agreeing to the move, I imagined my life would be filled with looking at pretty fabrics and furniture, sun/beach, and drinking (the last part being a common theme around these parts). Essentially, I thought I would look like this:
And live in a house like this:
While doing this:
Life was going to be good. I wasn’t going to be an attorney, I’d have a perpetual tan, and I’d sip champagne by the pool in our new house.
IF ONLY!! I now know that I didn’t really think this fantasy through (which my hubby probably isn’t surprised by). I definitely don’t have a body like that and don’t have the funds to live in a house like that or a life that allows me to drink champagne by the pool daily (or weekly, monthly, etc.).
So far, my life has looked more like this:
With a little bit of the fun stuff:
So all is not lost…haha!
I’m slowly beginning to like Los Angeles, getting out of the house and exploring more, searching for that house with a pool, and getting back to normal.
This blog will follow me through the trials and tribulations as I navigate this new world. The posts will focus mainly on interior design but will also probably include the random musings of the day. I hope it’ll be informative and helpful but also very entertaining. As I’ve been said to lack a verbal filter, I would guess the entertaining part may be easier than the other promises.
Join me…I’ll do my best to make it fun.
