Well it happened.
I took a break from blogging. That is a lie. I was in a funk and I had writer’s block- a horrible 3-month long bout of it but I am oh-so-happy to back at it!
A lot of changes have happened over the last three months. I accepted a promotion at work and I have been working like crazy because of it. However, I absolutely LOVE my job and the consistent challenges that it presents so I really would not have it any other way!
The second change is that I am moving! While it is not far (it’s actually within walking distance from my current apartment) it will be my “very first big girl all by myself no need for a roommate or boyfriend I can decorate it anyway I want apartment!” Needless to say I have spent many hours scouring Pinterest for decorating inspiration and organization ideas. I am impulsive and I have been packing my apartment since February 28th the day after I found out that I got my new apartment. I have been purging and getting rid of a lot but I still feel like there is so much to do! And as I sit amid my boxes and the remaining few odds and ends (really, what box am I supposed to put the one CD that I own or lightbulbs?) I cannot help but feel overwhelmed! But the excitement of fresh paint, new bedding, and setting up my first completely Paleo kitchen outweighs the anxiety that I am feeling. I also feel so incredibly accomplished to have the ability to be able to afford my own place!
I need to go back to packing/cleaning/and a run but I wanted to leave you with this picture of Murdoch who is experiencing anxiety over moving-I caught him tossing his dragon in to a box this morning. Adorable! I cannot wait to get in to my kitchen to start whipping up some new recipes that I have been working on!
