Happy Monday! Usually I hate Mondays, but I’m truly looking forward to starting a new week. Last week got the best of me, there was a lot going on and I was feeling really overwhelmed and I kind of shut down and needed to step back and hit reset. I spent the weekend trying to catch up and I’ll be doing the same thing today, my email is backed up, I have 8-9 posts that I need to finish up and get scheduled, a huge pile of mail to go through and a whole bunch of exciting new things to shoot so I can finally share them with you!
I’m still having so much fun exploring my new city and getting settled and wanted to share a little life update with y’all! My gallery wall in the living room is finally up and I’m slowly getting the apartment put together. I’m still sleeping on an air mattress (and will be for the foreseeable future) and the lack of closet space is a bit of a challenge, but, I’m trying so hard to embrace this low-key, laid back lifestyle of Southern California.

It’s been a huge adjustment going from DC to La Jolla, one I’m fully absorbing and enjoying so much, I needed a change. Of pace and scenery. I definitely miss DC, my friends, routines, favorite places to eat and mostly knowing and understanding the pulse of the city and the people that live there. La Jolla and San Diego as a whole is so so different and I’m slowly getting a feel for it. So far the hardest part for me has been the style! My typically very preppy style has me sticking out like a sore thumb around here. Although, it is quite nice that on October 25th I’m still wearing shorts! I am so glad I made the decision to move out here, La Jolla is so gorgeous and I really can’t complain, I mean, I fall asleep listening to the waves every night and jump in the water every day when I get home from work.
What’s going on in your life right now? I’d love to hear a little life update from y’all!
