It seems that the longer I’ve had this blog, the worse I’ve gotten at posting. But that’s not because great things aren’t happening. On the eve of my 3rd anniversary with NYC, I can’t help but reflect on this past year.
An amazing, transformative, bucket-list-checking, life changing year.
I found my dream job. I didn’t know it originally, I was just happy to be with a nice company, designing material. But the more that I work here, the better things get. I am being challenged professionally, but in a positive way. Even on a tough day, when I get home and someone asks me how my day was, 99% of the time I can say “It was good!” Job satisfaction is a powerful thing.
I also met the man of my dreams. Totally unexpected, totally not my “type.” But it somehow works, and it is amazing. Crazy little thing called love. Need I say more?
I’ve left Manhattan behind to move in with The Boy in Brooklyn. I’m pretty sure this new apartment is the size of my last 2 apartments combined. And although this is pretty recent, I’ve gotta say, so far, so good (um, hello, $6 mani’s!!). There’s also something so magical about riding home from work and watching the sunset over the Verrazano Bridge. One of my favorite moments each day.
Sure, I had some low times, that’s how life goes. But the good days have most certainly outnumbered the bad days. My life is in a “sweet spot” and I couldn’t be happier. Every year just keeps getting better, so I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!
Happy Anniversary NYC, you’re such a babe.
