Greetings from beyond! I’m writing my annual hello message from my new apartment on a gorgeous, sunny, 60 degree morning in February while listening to the birds sing their spring songs. Yep, totally normal (ahem) yet insanely awesome.
I’ve missed you guys. I always think about this blog and writing something new. And I’m always shocked to go back and see the dates on some of the old posts I think about the most. I really want to commit to you guys long term, seriously. So I will (try my best … or see you again in 2018!?)! There are so many new things to discuss, so I should have some solid material for a while at least.
How about that 2016, huh? A handful of friends said it was totally normal and uneventful. Mine was life-changing:
1) became un-engaged, newly single
2) sold condo, moved to new apartment
3) quit job, found new one
4) even sold exploding engine Mini Cooper S (bless your self-destructive, adorable, chili red soul) and replaced with normal adult vehicle, still pining for sports car at this very moment
5) basically reinvented my entire life #aintnothang
Change is hard and magical all at the same time. I wish I had written down all the messy and neurotic thoughts I had over the past year. I would no doubt be a best selling author, with the proper editor of course. Or the crazy scrawl would have landed me in the insane asylum. One or the other.
I could not have done everything I did last year without a tremendous (and I mean legit unconditional love kind of stuff, because I talked a LOT … SO. MANY. WORDS.) amount of support from friends and family. You know who you are. Thank you, I love you. And to those of you who are hearing all of these things for the first time, I love you too. ♥
I think that’s all I have for now. I wanted to just reconnect to my people and say Hi.
I also need to get my domain name back. The sparkle and the clink have both drifted off into internet land due to neglect. This is why I can’t have nice things.
Have a lovely day. See you soon.
