This past weekend was my 6 month anniversary with Dylan. I know most people don’t celebrate six month anniversaries, but this is my first relationship! All the “small” milestones are magnified to me. So, we celebrated by going to Smith Tower and Seafair.
Due to current general busy-ness in my real life, I decided to take a break from writing this week. However, I still want to share my anniversary weekend activities with you, my followers, so I can maintain that balance of staying connected both on line and in the present moment. What better way to do so than by sharing photos from the weekend because, after all, photos are worth a thousand words, and those that aren’t have a caption.
Since the last time I posted, January 13th, it feels like I’ve lived a lot of my life. In my opinion, I have a good excuse for not posting in over six months. Funny enough, on January 14th I met my soulmate and since then I have enjoyed all my free time with him. We are coming up on our six month anniversary this August 4th, and I couldn’t be more happy! I fell in love and took a break, but now I’m ready to get back into blogging.
I have officially been back in Seattle for a week and Monet and I are all settled into my “microstudio” and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Excited to chronicle this new chapter of my life, I am starting by reflecting on this past seven days and the four years I lived in Seattle before.
Let me start this off with a bit about how I experienced Seattle before moving back to LA two years ago. I want to admit the things that were hard for me, as most of my friends and family heard me go on and on about them. Few worry about my return due to some of these factors; but, I just see things differently now so I’m not anticipating the same “Debbie Downer” feelings I had before.
Over the last few years I’ve attempted several times to start a blog. More specifically, a food blog. I love eating, I’m an amazing cook, and I know how to talk about food beyond “omg this tastes so good.” However, restricting myself to only write about food, in hindsight, was not the best idea.
