STAYCATION

This was the first weekend the man and I were both in the same town without any obligations whatsoever. Knowing this for a while, a few months ago we thought it might be fun to go on a trip during this time. But once the reprieve approached, we both realized we just wanted to not do anything fussy.

Enter: the Weekend Staycation.

I’ve also been indulging in delicious foods, doing fun things, apartmenting-hunting, and looking forward to a Memorial Day getaway!

IKEA and I: Assembling a Life Alone

IKEA & I: ASSEMBLING A LIFE ALONE

STARTING OVER, BY YOURSELF

I might as well be up-front about it: I’m going through a break-up (er… divorce). It’s a struggle for many reasons, as you can either relate to or imagine. But aside from the immense emotional and financial turmoil, it’s the little, every-day adjustments that have caught me most off-guard. And from these small conquests I have learned the largest lessons about embracing this new phase of life. So here they are.
