Hi! Ironically enough, hey, for some reason, is one of my least favorite greetings, but I was outside Kate Spade Saturday in Soho early this week (hope to share photos from our Northeast adventure soon!), and these letters were staring right up at me, and I somehow even sort of liked them. But, that’s besides the point. Ultimately, I’m welcoming you (hey, you there!) to my blog. My newest blog. The first post of my newest blog. No matter what, there’s always got to be an intro, right? You can’t just dive right in? I think that’s exactly what has taken me so long to jump start this time around. I’ve had a few blogs pertinent to various times in my life from post-grad to being engaged and planning a wedding to being a newlywed. These last couple of years, I’ve been so consumed in work and grad school, I’ve lost that extra little bit of time to blog, and I guess I wouldn’t have had too terribly much interesting to actually blog about since it’s been so much work and grad school (alright there is some fun and exciting stuff in there too, I promise!). But regardless, all the ‘busy’ has gotten me to where I stand today and what lies ahead…whatever that may actually be. I’ve still got a year left of grad school and a lot of work in front of me, but I’m ready to go back to making time to write too. It may not be a lot of time, and it may not be nearly as often as I’d like, but one of my goals in this new year was to get my blog back up and running. So, what better time than the end of July?! I’ve had a bit of a ‘summer break,’ if you will, meaning that I’ve had a few weeks off from grad classes. Somehow, this seems to have given me what seems like an eternal amount of freedom. So, one of my New Year’s goals of revamping the blog turned into a summer goal and is now finally happening approximately three weeks before school starts again. (You do the math.) Anyway, I really just wanted to start this again to give myself a place to write and clear my mind outside of the small monogrammed journals I carry around, the notes section of my iPhone and Instagram. Sometimes, I need to say more than what those give me the chance to say. I just want to share thoughts, photos, adventures, plans and maybe even a little inspiration to. We’ll go ahead and call this the obligatory intro post. Now I can finally dive right in ;) I’m finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel, and I’m really looking forward to what’s to come.
