It’s that time of the year again when I try to think back to all that’s happened in the weeks and months gone by. I know it’s not 1st of January but then New Year’s Resolutions are so cliched – besides I always prefer calibrating from a past major milestone. Two years ago I began a new adventure, moved down to a new place, lock, stock and barrel for a new job. Moved into a new apartment with my then boyfriend, now husband. Husband! Oooo, it’s almost funny + magical + weird to say that word.
In those two years, I gave up a lot of things I was accustomed to. For starters, we moved to a new state and so – I had to start from scratch with acclimatizing myself to my new surroundings. I had to do so many things for the first time – driver’s permit and license, buying a car on loan, applications and permits for all sorts of things. Some of these were pretty grown up stuff.Then came the big – introducing him to the family and making sure everyone was okay. His family met my family. Everyone was on board. Then came more paperwork. Then the wedding planning for a good part of the past 10 months.
After two years of constantly working towards the next big goal, it feels like suddenly a weight has been lifted. This past weekend – all we did was
1. Clean the apartment 2. Relax at home.
No more, no less. After spending the past 10 months planning the wedding and always being on the move every single weekend since possibly February – it almost feels unreal to have stayed home this weekend. Things are beginning to slow down on the home front and it’s a much needed break I am grateful for. Not that the next goal isn’t already in sight but it’s just a place in life where I see where I came from, where I am going and right here, right now, actually feels very good.
Just wanted to take a moment to thank how far along we’ve come. Here’s to future adventures.
