I'm Back

Hello Lovely Readers,

It's been awhile hasn't it?  Last month was simply crazy for me.  So much so, I had to put my whole world on hold, including my company because.....

...after much prayer, my husband and I decided to sell our home in Murrieta, CA and move back to L.A.  It was truly one of the most stressful things I've ever had to do.  I'm surprise I still have hair on my head! Although, I did gain ten stress pounds.  I would have never guessed that some people would negotiate so many petty things when buying a house, that I'm surprised they did ask to throw in one of my sons as part of the deal. In the end, we walked away with what we really wanted and a sense of adventure ahead.
After eight years of living in other cites, it felt good to be back home in LaLaLand, minus the traffic and some of the rude people (I'm just saying).  God Willing we will be buying our new home here at the end of this year but for now it will be apartment living.  Which means my work space/ studio/ office will be in a walk-in closet.  Yes you read right, I will be putting together my summer pieces and spring 2014 in that little box.  Lord only knows how I will pull this off but I'm going to try because a month of not designing, creating or working, just killed me.  I breath fashion.
So now you know where I've been the past month and what's to come from Melissa Velia.  I'm back to work today and I'm back in L.A. Cheers!!
