You know when life is so crazy and there is just so much to write about that you don’t even know how to properly form a sentence? The very idea of sitting down to write everything—or anything!—that’s going on is positively mind boggling? Yeah. That’s me right now.
Rather than writing a post that flows beautifully and provides insight that makes you want to share with all your friends, I’m going to keep it straight and simple. Coincidentally, it is Wednesday so you know what that means: #HashtagHumpday! I love how that happens.
Here goes some of the highlights of my new life in Sacramento. #areyouready
So much for my plan of “When I move to Sacramento, I’m going to begin losing weight!” Yeah right. Between my boyfriend’s mom’s delicious home-cooked meals (and cookies!) and work lunches of pizza and chicken wings, it doesn’t look like that goal of losing weight is going to happen any time soon. And no, there is no such option of self control.
I fall asleep in my favorite person’s arms every night, which I know sounds like a small thing but if you have spent months away from your loved one, you understand the impact this has. I don’t care that we are sleeping on an air mattress in the living room because at least I’m with him—which is something that even such a short time ago seemed like it would never happen. I feel immensely blessed to be with Jake again, especially through this craziness of establishing a new life, and I can’t help waking up with a big smile on my face every morning. #ilovemyman
I am starting to get used to my rental car—I finally learned how to turn the windshield wipers on (good thing too, with all this rain!) and my eyes don’t burn quite so much when I look at the bright redish orange color. All the same, I’m counting down the days until I bring my beloved Subaru Forester here… except I admit I really love the zip! this rental has. #lipstickredrental
The search for our new home continues. It is stressful looking for a new place, as I’m sure you’re aware. Add in a tight budget, specific move-in deadline, and a large dog—you can imagine the additional difficulties. We explored various areas this past weekend and I’m checking out specific complexes each evening after work. Our goal is to compile information on our favorites and get a tour this coming weekend when we are both available. I absolutely cannot wait to tell you all about our new home and post about decorating on a budget… just let us get that home first! #searchforaplacetocallhome
I. Love. My. Job. There is so much to learn and I’m putting my heart into each small task or time-consuming project. I love working with a small company alongside a close-knit group of people. I cannot begin to explain how excited I am for the future as the Digital Content Coordinator. Again, more details to come later! #igotmydreamjob
As the initial hectiness settles and I feel like I can actually breathe again, I draw my attention back to my blog. I feel guilty for neglecting it recently, particularly because I told myself I would not let this occur even when I was going to experience this big move. However, these things happen and the best thing to do is get back on the horse. So here I am, taking baby steps back to blogging and getting into the swing of things.
Thank you all so much for your patience and support—I cannot begin to tell you how much it means to me. Expect the month of January to be a little sporadic as I get my life in order here. Also, you can probably expect most of my posts to be on the personal side (though I have quite a few drafts of what I like to call “shareable” posts that I should finish up and publish).
Talk to you all soon!
