I have been keeping this a secret for far too long and I am ready to share our big news!
We are moving back to Los Angeles!
Well, its moving back for me, but it is a brand new place for Alec.
When I was 19, I moved from Phoenix to Los Angeles, and all I brought was what I could fit in my car. I left my boyfriend, my dog (although I went and got him later,) my "stuff", and all of my friends and everything I had ever known. Now, mind you, I had a ton of family in LA, so it wasn't a totally lonely place, but it was still foreign and terrifying. I talked to my dad every day for 6 months. I started going to school, and slowly I made a life there over the next 5 years.
When I decided to move to San Diego, it was because I was crazy in love and wanted to be where my guy was. This was a good call, because that man has become my whole world and the father of my son. But living here was hard for me because all my friends were his friends, and I had a really hard time finding my own niche.
This time around I expect it to be different, because obviously, I do have a life there. I have friends and family, and familiarity. But I also know that LA is going to be different. I won't be running in the same crowds, and my focus isn't going to be the same. When I was there before I was partying and everything was crazy and honestly, I burned a lot of bridges because I was not in a good place. I am so ready to focus on my future, and I am high on how wonderful I know this move is going to be. For me, as a person; for Alec, as a person; for us, as a couple; and for the three of us as a family.
I can't wait to bring you all along with us on our journey!
