I've got secrets... Oh yes I do.

So normally I'm the type to just burst out all her secrets....

I'm the worst at Christmas, any time there's a surprise party or when a friend says, "I've got something to tell you but you can't tell anyone". For me, these are invitations to tell someone else.... or go crazy.

But y'all....
I've got the biggest secret.
And truly....
I cannot tell you yet.
Because I also believe in the power of the jinx. And this... this I cannot risk the jinx! 
But... do believe I will be telling you SO BIG....just as soon as I can.

In other news....

How's life? I feel so nutty lately. We're shopping around for a house to rent here in Los Angeles. It's funny because we've lived here almost two years (whaaat?) and know where we want to be, what kind of house we need and even how much we can spend comfortably. And now... there aren't any houses to be found. This pocket of the world is quite interesting I tell ya. Everyone here is here for the same things:

Dreams. Big ones. Money. Lots of it.  A beautiful life. And how.


There are opportunities to be had all right. But there are also way more people in the same boat to the same island if you get what I mean. The things I'm probably learning the most while we're here are strength and perseverance. Because friends.... it is hard. But worth it. Isn't that usually how it goes?

You, Los Angeles..... you are an adventure. One that I'm learning very slowly to navigate and enjoy.

Happy Monday friends.

  1. I'm a shocker when it comes to keeping secrets too! I don't think I've been able to keep a surprise a secret from hubby in the almost 13 years we have been together, I get myself so excited that it feels like I'm going to burst.

    1. It's just so hard isn't it?! But the better the secret, the more you usual need to keep it.

  2. I'm the same way. I mean, with Jen, we share EVERYTHING and have for the past 10 years. However, with other people, people I should keep a secret from/for... ahmygosh, it's so hard!!!


show me some love.
