You Just Never Know…

…where your life will end up.

I didn’t think that a year ago I would have met a super awesome man on an online dating site when I was least expecting it (but isn’t that always the way, I guess?), that the relationship would have taken me to Jamaica twice, and that within a year of meeting we would be living together.

I also didn’t think that I could be this content AND that I would be preparing to conceive in the new year.

I’ve been thinking of taking this blog to a new location to start over documenting this new chapter…stay tuned….


One, Two, Three

Oh how it’s been a minute.

Work has been insane. Once I get home my brain is exhausted and all I can focus on doing is having the obligatory “puppy time” and then relaxing on the couch until bed (which has been early most nights too!)

Today though I am under control and have been super productive. I actually don’t know what has gotten into me, but no matter.

I have something to say about 2 lipsticks, and even though this is not a beauty blog I don’t care because I need to get this off my chest. That will come. Also an update on A and life in general.

Now see how hectic things have been? I almost forgot to mention that the flight is booked to Jamaica, I officially leave on the 29th of January. This is probably the most interesting thing that has happened to me in a long time and I almost forgot about it!
