A little Monday Magic inspiration!
I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now and I must apologize.
Two months ago we were told that we needed to find a new place to live. Our (landlord) I hate that word. Makes no sense. Anyhow.. he said he needed to move some family in. I’ll never forget that day. So many emotions! We are so comfortable, f*** that’s my busiest time of year, where are we going to go? What city? How are we going to do it? What are we going to do??!!!
Curtis and I have been living in Camarillo for the last 3 plus years and if you don’t know about Camarillo, it’s a beachy, quiet small town 50 miles north of Los Angeles. It was much needed break from living in Hollywood after 8 years. It had a cute little downtown, 10 min from the beach, yummy restaurants. It was always 15-20 degrees cooler, breezy and beautiful. I loved it! But, and the BIG but, I have been commuting downtown for the last 3 plus years and I was over it. I needed to be closer to my boudoir studio, we knew we both needed to be in LA. I knew this was news that was going to change our lives.
We had a beautiful home, three stories tall and it felt like we lived in a tree house. Both being Artists, we both had the space we needed to create and to work around each other. We had so much room.
I was excited and scared to death.
I can’t live in a condo, or apartment. I can’t live too far away, I need nature around me, a garden, trees, birds, a patio to meditate and do yoga, a peaceful place where I still feel creative and nurtured. How am I going to find that in LA?
The search began and I started focusing on what I wanted. I started researching properties to buy in Topanga, thinking ok let’s buy some land and build something. Let’s be hippies and do something different. I knew we didn’t have enough time, and it was driving me crazy. When I want something, I get laser driven and I have a hard time compromising or believing that whatever I want, will not find it’s way to me. I want it so bad, I can feel it.
After a few weeks of looking I started to get depressed. There is just no way this can happen this fast. I’m crazy, we can’t live out of an rv temporarily, we have way too much shit. I was also looking for places to rent, but still not finding anything ideal.
We both need a offices, Curtis needs a paint room, did I say we have a pit bull, where the hell can we live that meets my seemingly nearly impossible requests for the amount we could afford?
I did not know how it was going to happen, but I stayed positive and knew it would all work out just the way it was suppose to. I heard the noises, I felt the sun on my face, I smelled the air, and I felt my heart lifting, and I knew something magical would happen.
And it certainly did.
Last week we just moved into the bottom of a canyon on 2.5 acres, 10 min from my boudoir studio. I have a garden, the most beautiful deck I’ve ever seen, a outdoor stove, meditation nook, and a bar. I know!! Whatttttttttttt???!! It’s pure heaven and it’s finally setting in. My heart is full of gratitude!
I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time. Fished this year strong, so I know this is next year is going to be my biggest and best year yet!!
