It's hard to believe it but, Monday this week, the 16th of November, was the 1 year anniversary of our big migration to the US of A. And boy oh boy, what a tumoltuous year it's been!
It really started almost 2 years ago now, when Alicia and I would email each other from work every day with our big plans and dreams of what we were going to do when we arrived in LA! At the time, it was the only thing that got us through the daily grind.
But being here and living and experincing it for real, has been a completely different and un-predictable experience.
From car accidents with police cars, to losing apartments and jobs, from meeting Brad and Angelina and going to some of the hottest parties in Hollywood to traveling the country in a tour bus for 3 months with a bunch of strangers, it's certainly been an action packed year.
And I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the States.
We really have been really lucky though, in so many ways and I'm so grateful I made the bold move over here.
Getting a visa was the best thing I have ever done and I had always thought it would be so much harder than it was. Congratulations on your job Alicia, and to daring to move over to the unknown West Coast. I'm so incredibly proud of you and grateful that you made the move to LA with me and that we got to spend such an incredible 8 months together.
Sisters for life.
Dreams can become your reality, the only thing in your way is you.
Here's to the next 12 months!
May they be even more crazy, hilarious, scary, exciting, beautiful and adventurous!
