Hey guys n gals, It’s been a while. I’m sorry for my numerous hiatuses, GAHH, I know “bad blogger, bad” *hand thwacks*. But I have one crazy life man. Crazy, awesome though. And blessed. And there are so many new things I want to share with you guys. The biggest of which is…
*— I AM NOW LIVING IN D O W N T O W N L A !!!—*
Downtown…Los Angeles, California. I honestly can hardly believe it!
I have wanted to live here since at least the 6th grade. Never visited, no close family near, nothing. I just knew deep down in my soul that LA is where I belonged and I promised myself that after school, this is where I would end up living for at least some period of time. Now that desire is realized and it’s super awesome and surreal all at the same time. I can’t help but thank God.
The road here was a crazy one, literally, since we drove 24+ hours cross-country in a truck holding all of our belongings. But check out a couple of images I managed to snag along the way.
Seeing all the natural beauty as we passed through Texas, New Mexico, Some of Mexico (we passed Border Patrol twice..eek!), Arizona, and California, on the way to LA was majestic and eye-opening. In the grassland regions of Texas, like Houston, I’m not used to seeing such different types of terrain. Neither in my swampland hometown, N.O. But each state had its own awesome, physical beauty to offer, each different than the other. If only I could’ve captured the canyons in West Texas or the mountains made of impossibly stacked boulders in Arizona! The drive was a long daunting task, especially in a Penske truck, but definitely worth it.
Now its been about a month since we’ve been in LA (Triiin, and I) and we are just doing our best to get acclimated and cultivate Free Spiiirit so we can take the city by storm! We are almost done fully setting up the apartment and I will have pics of the finished product coming soon (Its starting to look so cool in here, I can’t wait to show you guys!). But yeah, things are different here. Mostly different, good, so we are just embracing it and rolling with the punches. 🙂
I will be back to blogging more now that I am finally (somewhat) settled. 😀
Also, I don’t know if I told you guys yet…(probably not, my bad)…but as of September 15th, the Free Spiiirit site is re-launched and back in action. If you love my style, check out our vintage finds and original designs at FreeSpiiirit.com !
