  Licensed in California!   Hurry up!  And wait...        That's usually the story with applying for a mortgage loan oringator license in a new state. Get your background/credit checks & fingerprinting done, knock out your continuing education, pass the state exam, fill out the paperwork, write a check, send it away, and wait.  And wait.  And wait...        California was no exception, but finally, after packing up my car & driving cross country to my new home, I can work in my back yard.  It's been a weird couple of months since I've never lived anywhere I couldn't work, and after completing all of the state requirements in late September, it's been quite a waiting game that I'm glad has come to an end.         I am incredibly appreciative of the Realtors, financial advisors, past clie...

Speechless Sundays - South Coast Plaza Christmas       I love Christmas though I'm not sure about having it all start before Thanksgiving.  Still, South Coast Plaza does a wonderful job of making it so beautiful with lights and decorations throughout the mall. They deck the halls in so many wonderful ways that perhaps I can handle it being a week early.

  Wordless Wednesday - California Sky on Fire     One of my goals for this month was to get each day started before the sun came up.  Consequently I've been able to take in many more sunrises.  This one was especially rewarding, it looked as if the sky was on fire.  Nature never ceases to amaze me.
