2009, here I come!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe celebration last night. I know I did, and I won't be drinking champagne again for a long while!
What a year it's been!! I'm really looking forward to 2009. To be honest, things have been a little bit rough here lately. The person with which I spent the last 3 years of my life, grown with, drank with, cooked with, stayed up late with, and shared all my dreams with, has left me, sad and alone. It's a complicated situation that I won't go into great detail over, but lets just say, we wanted different things in life. Something that wasn't evident until very recently. This happened just 2 weeks before Christmas. So, in turn, I'm going to do what I've been wanting to do for almost a year already, move back home to Portland, Oregon. Yay!
This does mean that I will no longer be the "little bird in the big city." Hmm.
Not sure if I'll change my blog name, but I might make a minor adjustment.
I leave the big apple on the 15th of January. I know, it's so soon! So I'm frantically packing up my apartment right now and trying to tie together all my loose ends. It's not easy. In fact, this whole holiday season has probably been one of the hardest things I've ever had to get through. But, hey, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, right?
So here are my new year's resolutions. This year they're a bit vague:
1. Have a better year than last year! (that should be easy)(knock on wood).
2. Start my own cake decorating business, even if I only accomplish the first steps.
3. Spend as much time outdoors as possible. Take advantage of what Oregon has to offer (all the things I've missed while I was living in the concrete jungle).
I guess that's about it. Exercise, eat right, blah blah blah.
I will miss Brooklyn, no doubt. But I can't wait to get back to the life I left 4 years ago. Friends, family, etc.
But don't worry, I'll still be blogging it up, just from a new location.
I did finish one legwarmer this week, and now I'm working on the second. It turned out a bit small, but I'm still able to wear it. I'm really excited about the fair isle technique, and I can't wait to try my next project!
