My LALA Land 10 Year Anniversary

Today is my ten year anniversary living in Los Angeles. Dates like these I cannot help but reflect about the past. How many little decisions it took to get to the point I am in my life today. After graduation from High School I was faced with the decision about where to go to college.

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION 1999

I ended up deciding to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and my first adventure away from home, family and friends started. I literally knew no one in the city and of course I was terrified. I worked, I put myself through college, I made friends and went to parties and had the time of my life. These were the moments that I knew I could concur the world, that nothing could get in my way as long as I worked hard. Without this positive experience I would have never been able to make the big jump.

The big jump being to move to Los Angeles, the best decision in my mind I ever made. Not only did I find my fabulous husband here but I found that I took to LALA land as if it had always been my home. I grew in my career, I bought a house, I became a wife and now soon I will become a mother here.

Sure we still have a long road ahead of us full of so many more happy memories but I am so happy with where I am right in this moment that I cannot imagine anything better except holding on for the ride with a smile on my face and enjoy!

10 years, how time flies. The older you get, the faster time flies by.
