Picking up

Hello friends,

It’s been such a long time since I last wrote. 2014 was a very trying year for me and my family. First, we had to say good-bye to my amazing and strong da. I miss him every single day and am slightly comforted by the bits of him that I recognize in Sagan.

We had a spade of home break-in’s and before long, I knew that, in order to keep my sanity, I had to leave Scarlett and the place we called home. We have now moved into a new space, it’s not in the city anymore but I still work in the city so I do get to spend time there. It was tough leaving a community that I felt connected to but it was time. Sometimes you feel it and no words can truly explain.

I am making a new commitment to update this blog again. I’d like to share updates about my life, show you how much S has grown and maybe start taking more pictures again. Let’s see if I can do this once a week.

I have missed you guys. I don’t even know if you would even read this but HELLO AGAIN!


  1. So excited to see you in my reader again! You’re such a positive person it is always great to get glimpses into your life. So sorry about your dad. I lost mine three years ago and have so many things I’d like to talk to him about.

      Thank you, anyresemblance 🙂 I remember our emails dating back to before I got to Seattle! I’m so sorry to hear about your dad too, it seems to be more difficult as time passes.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. And having to move out of the neighborhood is terrible, I hope your new home is safe and happy!

      Thanks Megan, I miss the old neighborhood but I am starting to enjoy this new one! Hope all is well with you!

  3. Yay!! I don’t know you but I’m a long-time reader. I stumbled upon your blog back when I was in college (more than a decade ago!) and have missed your posts. So happy you’ll be updating again.
