Carrie Bradshaw once said,

"In New York, you're always looking for a job, a boyfriend, or an apartment."

After the firestorm of the past three months, I have had a magical two weeks, in which I have gotten all three. The world works in mysterious ways!

This is what I wore for a grocery run, with my newly Californian boyfriend, in what I am now coming to understand as "winter": 60 degrees, partly cloudy, no coat necessary. 

As for the apartment, it is one long series of "before" shots right now, but Trevor and I are tearing it down and building back up again anew. It is a beautiful 100-year old building with 100-year old problems, but it's going to be incredible when it's done. We are in a lovely area in Oakland and I could not be happier. 

I also have a brand new job! I will be tucking away my walking shoes and sitting down behind a desk for the first time in a long time. I'll be working in online content for a major brand and I am thrilled for the opportunity. California has turned my life upside down and inside out!

Full of gratitude, full of hope, humbled by the world.
