Thanks for sticking around with me as I took a little break from blogging. Life has been kind of crazy lately but I’m looking forward to catching up with you guys.
So 2015 has been a year full of changes for me. It’s always hard to know where to draw the line when it comes to talking about your personal life on the internet because I know my friends and family read here and I would never want to say something to upset or offend someone. But I want to be authentic in my posting so I feel like it’s the right time to share with you that I’m getting divorced. I was never really sure how to address it on the blog because I didn’t want to make a big dramatic post about it but I also didn’t want to casually mention it and minimize how hard everything has been. So here we are.
I recently decided to move outside of the city to be closer to work, so I wanted to take a month off from blogging to focus on packing, moving and basically not losing my mind in the process. Moving is never fun but I’m happy to report that I survived and I’m mostly settled in my new place.
The silver lining? I’m just a few minutes away from my work. Goodbye, 1-hour commute. I won’t miss you.
When I packed the final load in my car a few weeks ago and drove away from my old apartment, the changes I’ve experienced lately really hit me. I’ve spent a lot of this year wondering where I was headed and if I could build a new life for myself that I would be happy with as I’m about to turn 30. There have been a lot of difficult moments for me throughout this process, but I’ve tried to keep in mind that we wake up each morning to a brand new day.
The thought of moving was completely overwhelming to me but it turns out that it was exactly what I needed. I’m at a point where I just want to move forward towards happiness. And June feels like an especially good time to turn the page in this book of life… I’m ready for my next chapter.
Thank you again for keeping me on your blog feed. I missed all of my blogging friends and I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone.
