wow. to say the least, this hiatus was not planned. to say a lot has been going on, is also putting things lightly since i last posted my life has basically taken a complete 360.
after my husband and i got married late last year, we really thought things were going to change for us. for some reason we had it in our heads getting married was the first step of many to basically start the path to building a better life. ( it still is when you look at the bigger picture of life, just not according to the perfect picture we painted.) well, things didn't exactly go like that for the first 6 months. my husband was unhappy in his job, i thought i would leave mine and start school right away. so needless to say we felt a little lost and even trapped.
i was trying to make the best of it. see we knew we would be moving no matter what. husbands job was moving him to a new office a lot closer to the area of california we wanted to be. so i started to look into school around the area of said move. eventually i found one in san francisco. not where we would be moving, but close enough to make a commute work. i toured the school and started enrolling.
randomly one day my husband sent out a resume. to only one company. a few days later they responded, asking for an interview. to make this already long story a little shorter, he got the job, we found an apartment and moved in the matter of about 2 weeks. moved to SAN FRANCISCO at that! and if you have followed me at all, you know this our favorite place, and also the city we got married in. so it holds a lot of meaning for us.
at this point i still feel like i'm on some sort of weird vacation. where i work at home and stay in someones very cozy apartment. i feel so amazing about our future at this point. the idea that things happen if they are meant to happen is exactly how i feel right now. all our stars have aligned. our planets must be in just the right faze. okay, ill cut it out with the hippie bs.
while are really just settling in, i already feel so at home here. in just a little over two months time i will starting school, so i have at least till then to explore and get to know my surroundings. i'm in a state of pure bliss these days. i often find myself smiling from ear to ear most days for no reason at all.
whats your favorite place? i know we all have that city we feel was made for us. and i finally live in mine.
