What I’ve been up to.


It’s me, Elyssa.

I’ve been very (VERY) busy the past few months:

  1. Chris and I took a 2 week trip to Europe (Prague, Dresden, Berlin & Warsaw).

  2. Chris accepted a job in Los Angeles.

  3. We packed up all our stuff and moved out just three weeks after that.

  4. We were homeless for about six weeks, living out of subleased rooms and hotels.

  5. During which I was (and still am) looking for a job.

  6. We signed a lease and moved into an apartment in West L.A.

  7. We visited with family and attended my little sister’s wedding.

  8. I’ve been unpacking, cleaning, getting settled in — and still job hunting.

We’ve had some adventures and some mishaps. It was a big change, and a bit scary and intimidating at times to move from small-town North Carolina to big-time Los Angeles — but now that we are settled in I’m definitely growing to love it. I am a West Coast girl at heart, after all.

So that’s where I’ve been. I’ll have updates on those adventures and what I’m doing now — but in the meantime you should head over to Ashpants.com! It’s my sister’s blog, and I designed the header for it (I’m pretty proud of it).
