Facing the World Together

If you’re sick of hearing about our upcoming move, stop reading now.

John and I are moving to LA in just over one month.... The feelings I am having about the subject are complicated to say the least...

The thought is both terrifying and exciting. Terrifying (for me, at least) because we are leaving behind the only life we have ever known together. We are embarking on a journey of discovery, of ourselves, of each other, of a completely new environment, culture and way of looking at things. We are relocating to the City of Angels in hopes of realizing our dreams – and like Andrew said in our wedding ceremony, “Love strengthens each of you so you can be involved with life in ways you dare not risk alone.”

Of course, when we wrote our wedding ceremony nearly a year ago, we knew that we were going to be moving to LA at some point in the future. And it’s so exciting to me, as I look at my wonderful husband – so talented, so inspired and tortured (as artists tend to be) so close to realizing his dreams.

The transition from Santa Cruz to Los Angeles is an exciting one for me, because the sheer fact that we are moving there is a realization of a kind of dream. We have been nurtured, pampered, and stifled by our existence in Santa Cruz. Life on the Central Coast has not thrown us any challenges, nor does it offer any hope or excitement towards the future. The move to LA is a voyage that John and I are venturing on just the two of us, with only our love for each other and our hopes and dreams to guide us.

And we’ll make it. Someday you’ll see us walking down the red carpet at the Oscars schmoozing with Johnny Depp and Catherine Zeta-Jones-Douglas (SO HOT!) and other Hollywood elite. You will! I swear!

And if we don’t make it to the red carpet, so what?

At least we can say we tried.
