New Beginnings

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday.  I did, despite spending way too much money, as well as a few unfortunate mishaps.  It was my first time hosting an adult party on New Year's Eve, so I learned a few lessons, but I enjoyed celebrating the end of 2011 with good food, drinks, and friends.

I have not committed to any resolutions (yet), but I do intend to blog more.  I also plan on excercising more and watching what I eat, not to lose weight, but to stay physically healthy.  I will post a list of my goals, if I get around to making some.

A lot has happened since the last time I posted an actual update.  I went on three vacations (New York City, New York; Oceanside, California; and Capitol Reef National Park, Utah), I turned 27 (no, I am not looking forward to turning 30), I put my cat down (Sean did a good job documenting his life on his blog, Cocoa (1996 - 2011): Tribute to a FAT CAT!), and the person who broke into our house was caught (but nothing was recovered).  The biggest change happened more recently.
As most of you know, Sean and I are no longer together.  I do not enjoy airing dirty laundry or posting passive aggressive comments on a public blog/website such as mine (at least for now; I may make it private, but I would rather not do that), so I will not say anything more about this, but if you want to know why (from my perspective, of course), I would not mind explaining over dinner or drinks.  I will say I am certainly sad the relationship (including, it seems, the friendship) ended, but I am not depressed, and for the most part, I am happier.  The good that has and will come of this experience far outweighs the bad.

This year will definitely be full of "new" -- new people, new places, new adventures, new opportunities, new beginnings -- and I am looking forward to it.


  1. I enjoy reading your blog! If you ever need to chat, I went through a divorce this year so I feel your pain. Good luck with the year 2012 being a great one!

  2. I also enjoy reading your blog and love conversing on Facebook. I am also glad 2011 is over and ready for some new beginnings as well (and getting past the disappointments of 2011). Happy New Year and hoping for a prosperous 2012 :)
