Roses and Thorns

Helloooo…

The title of the post might not make much sense unless you’ve done roses and thorns. It’s basically where you talk about your rose (highlights, a good thing that happened) and your thorn (downer of your day).

This is not a particularly juicy post, but I do find it therapeutic to sometimes get out onto paper/blog what’s running through my head.

On Thursday I have my Austin post scheduled and it’s not the most complete overview of our trip in Austin because 1) that trip was rough 2) I’ve been trying to take a breather from taking pictures of everything.

After the NY posts I hit a wall-like a major wall. I did not want to write another post or take another picture so I tried to not force it and only took pics of what I wanted when I wanted. It was great, but I do have some regrets because some great fun was had and some delicious food eaten.

Giving myself that time though made me realize why I started doing this in the first place and helped me realize how much I do love and enjoy it.

During the Austin post I don’t talk much about the “series of unfortunate events” as I think of it in my head. Mostly because I think Austin is a great city and just because we aren’t meant to be there means absolutely nothing.

The series of unfortunate events include, but are not limited to our house being in escrow when we left LA and the buyer pulling out and my dad being in the hospital. The cherry on top was returning to LA, sitting in 1 hour and 40 minutes of traffic with a pretty bad uber driver. The sprinkles on the frosting had to be being locked out of our house with our luggage because during a showing or inspection the lock we had taped over to prevent someone from locking was locked.

You guys, that’s not even all of it, but I think burdening you with that is more than enough.

All of that being said I am so grateful to be back at home, to have a great real estate agent who I know is handling things, secured an apartment for our next move to San Bernardino county, knowing my dad is going to be okay, and having a pretty great husband to help carry the load.

If you managed to get through this post I appreciate you sticking around and just know that I do have a delicious Austin post coming up Thursday so do come back to check that out 😉

Have a great week my sweets!

    Oh my gosh, Jess!! That really is a serious string of unfortunate events and in such a short time frame! I feel anxious for ya. I am sooo glad and relieved for you that everything is ok now though. And I can’t wait to read your Austin post! Also I totally know what you mean about the blog being therapeutic to sort out thoughts- always feel free to vent here 🙂 Never a burden!
