What’s the opposite of bicoastal?

Hi darlings,

Today’s my first full day of being uno-coastal. Or would it be mono-coastal? All I know is it’s a beautiful change and I’m happy to be home in LA. Sweet, sweet home.

Here’s an excerpt from the goodbye email I sent to my friends at Sawtooth, the amazing NJ-based ad agency that was my reason for being bicoastal these three plus years. It was a tough decision, but deep in my heart I knew it was time.

After three plus years traveling between Los Angeles and New Jersey, I’ve decided to be in Los Angeles full time as of 2012.

Working at Sawtooth has been an amazing adventure for me. So, too, has been the bicoastal life that’s unfolded as a result of my genuine love for being here.

I’m excited to begin the next chapter of my life propelled by all the momentum I’ve gained by working with you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

So here I am, writing to you live from the next chapter. I am so excited to see what unfolds. And I will be sure to share it will all of you.

The photo above is from the last night of our roadtrip driving my car and all of our acquired east coast treasures home to LA. As the moon hung bright over Sedona, I took a deep breath, snapped this picture and breathed in and out. ‘Thank you, thank you.’

Good things.

Melissa
