Courage. . .April Moon Day 1

I'm playing along with Kat over at I Saw You Dancing 
and her April Moon reflective writing challenge.
I can't promise I will write everyday 
but I do promise to post at the very least a photo, 
 art, or some thing each day during the next 2 weeks.

The prompt for today is COURAGE.

This seems to be what my life
 has been screaming the past few months.

Have you missed me?
I've missed you.

Sorry to disappear for months.
My life has changed dramatically.
6 months ago the CEO of my day job asked me to move.
I made it happen (with a whole lotta help) in 6 weeks.
I didn't just move down the street or to the next town.

I moved to the other side of the country.
I jumped coasts.

1 boyfriend, 2 cats, everything we own, 
2 flights, 1 moving company, 
10 days with no furniture/stuff, 
3.5 months without a car, 
and we all survived.
Good bye NYC. Hello Santa Barbara, California.

Even the cats love our second floor apartment. 
We call it our Treehouse.

It took courage to jump,
to leave a city that I had fallen in love with,
that I had spent 13 years of my life in,
to leave friends that are now family,
to embrace change.

By the way, I'm in love.
I love my new life.
Now to get back into my creative life, too.

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."

  1. Yay, Lori Moon. So happy to see your post and damn your cats are huge. I love them. I need to remember that even if I only post a photo that is good enough.

  2. WOW! That's a massive change, Lori! No wonder you've needed time to regroup.
    Fantastic you're loving your new life. Your words and photos exude a gorgeous energy, which practically leaps off the screen! xx
