on five years of this blogging thing

I feel like I blinked and it suddenly became July. How in the world does that work? This May made five years of writing this little blog and I was a bit shocked. I had no long term goals or ambitions of this becoming a "thing". I was bored and uninspired and thought "oh this will be fun..."

So here we are, five years later...five years of my LIFE chronicled on this little slice of the internet. This blog has traveled with me through Dallas, Connecticut, and now Charlottesville. It's been there when I was single, dating, engaged, and newly married. It's seen my life ebb and flow through extensive baking to triathlon training. All of this is exciting while also being a bit overwhelming. I mean, who doesn't get totally freaked out when they go back and read a journal entry from 2010...

All that said, this space has been such a joy. It has taught be about confidence, acceptance, creativity, perseverance, and adaptability. For that, I am thankful. 

Update on life lately
We officially moved to Charlottesville, VA this past Monday. We drove down with a car full of stuff, enough to get us through the undetermined number of days before our moving truck comes with the rest of our stuff. We are sleeping on an air mattress, adjusting to this new city, and trying to get back to our routine. I'm adapting to working remotely and C is adjusting back to the working world (oh hey 9-5!). We're eating breakfast our of plastic bowls and every other meal is at a restaurant or picked up (which now that we're on our 3rd week of this from all the's getting pretty old). 

I'm really anxious to get my home office set up, put all our stuff away, sleep on a real bed, and cook again. I can't wait to start getting back into a workout routine and healthier eating. I'm looking forward to making friends and exploring our new hood. 

There is also a part of me that is pretty fearful. I've moved pretty much every year since 2006 (even if it was within the same city). It feels really bizarre to be going to the DMV next week to get Virginia licenses (I've only ever had CT, even when I lived in Texas!). It's pretty nuts to think that this could really be our forever home. 

I'm looking forward to getting back to a more normal blogging schedule (so many fun things in the works!) and livening things up around here a little more. Until then, stay tuned!
