I must admit, it’s been a while. How are you?
There have been countless events the past few months that have made me pause and reflect. Some lucky and some unlucky. Most notably, I’ve had a huge change in scenery. I went from living in Logan Square and working in River North to living in South Loop and working in the Loop.
But, sometimes a change in scenery is just what you (I) need.
The views in this city are amazing. But everyday, for the past week and a half, I’ve taken in this particularly breathtaking view and realized just how lucky I am. I’m more or less living the life I’ve always imagined.
I have a sweet husband who makes me laugh everyday.
I have incredible, interesting friends who make me a better person.
I live in an amazing apartment in a delightful city.
I have a fun job that challenges me and enables me write everyday.
The only thing that would make it perfect would be having all of my family and close friends here. But alas, you can’t have it all.
So, before you throw up, I promise to post less about the sap and more about the weird.
Cheers to living the dream, whatever yours is.
