I’ve been living in Los Angeles for 3 months already! At times it is still surreal to think that my boyfriend and I packed up and moved across the country but it’s so real.
We celebrated our first Christmas and New Year’s Eve in LA and the first one away from our familys. It was a bittersweet moment.
I was excited to be celebrating in our new home and excited to be living in LA, but of course I missed my family. I called them all and talked to them about my plans for the holiday and got a little emotional but ensured them that I am still loving the decision to move here.
Both New Year’s Eve and Christmas were very low-key and relaxing days. We made a nice dinner and enjoyed tv and movies and just spending the holiday together. Also, as you may have noticed from one of my past posts, I experienced my first few rainy days in LA.
As I mentioned in the “Rainy Day” post previously, I am a pluviophile so I love and find peace and joy when it rains. If you know anything about LA or California, you know that we don’t get a lot of rain here so I was happy to see some rainfall especially since the air and plants get really dry here.
We also explored a new area, Griffith Park where we went up into the hills and visited an observatory, saw the hollywood sign in the distance, and saw an amazing sunset. More details of that adventure can be found here.
The weather here is great, it doesn’t feel like winter at all which is weird but nice. Overall, we are healthy, happy, and making the most out of our time here.
The goal is to explore much more of the city in the upcoming months and make more memories that will last forever.
