Hi friends. You may have noticed that I’ve been pretty quite for the past few months (apologies!). I think I was having a “3-decade crisis” (is that real, I have no idea?). I was feeling like I was at a crossroads in my life where I wasn’t really sure, “what’s next?” I was trying to figure out what the future held for me, both in my career and my personal life (relationships, friendships etc.).
Even though I had a lot going on, I didn’t really feel like I had a lot to say (which is pretty unusual because I always have something to say-wink).
I guess it was a time for being introspective and that’s why I took a break from the blog. The break lasted a lot longer then I had ever planned or intended, but I didn’t want to jump back into the blogosphere and put up posts just to post. I try to keep my content as, “real” as possible and when I’m feeling, “stuck” the blog is stuck too.
So if you’ve been
anxiously awaiting my return, curious about where I disappeared to, the answer is here:
Eric proposed to me on March 8th, and we’re now happily engaged (aww). The sign above is how I we told my parents and family that we’re engaged. We skyped with my folks and told them that Brooklyn (our dog) wanted to, tell them something. Then we held him up with the sign. It worked great the first few times until I held the sign upside down and saw my sister tilting her head and trying to figure out what the heck was going on.
So that’s the news in my little world. I’m now answering a million personal questions from people I don’t know that well about my fiance (how strange it is to type that after 6 years of having a “boyfriend”), my engagement and my wedding planning (or lack thereof). It’s all pretty fun and exciting (not just the wedding stuff, but finally being able to plan a future with the man I love).
I’ve also been working on some career things, including possibly taking on some private therapy clients at night (more on that in a, “side hustle” post to come) which is helping me feel re-energized about my work.
So if you’re an old friend, I’m glad you stuck around and I hope you’ll continue to stick around! If you’re an advertiser, blogger or colleague who sent me an email message I haven’t replied to, I’m SO sorry, please send it again and I promise I’ll reply right away (my inbox has gotten a little hairy and I’m going to have to start fresh to keep my sanity). And if you’re a new friend, Welcome! I’m very excited to have you here!
Tell me what’s new in your world! Have you ever taken a break from something and started fresh? Had a mid-life or 3-decade crisis? Gotten engaged? Tell me about it!
