Okay, so I took a few days break from social media after the season. It felt amazing but I also missed all of the interactions with my online community. The season didn’t end the way we wanted, obviously, but I learned a ton and am always grateful for the journey. And in ECSTATIC news we’ve spent the last few days trying to get settled in our recently purchased condo! The Bay Area has always felt like home for both of us so to be able to put roots down here is everything! Also so thankful to go through this life with this lovely lady. #HomeOwners #IsLifeReal #SoGrateful ??????
