The Brighter Side of Life

Okay, yes, yesterday's post was heartstrings sad.  (Thanks for your love, dear readers, really - it means so much.)  But today's post is happy!  Leaving was hard, but fitting back into DC life has been breezy and beautiful, and I'm having a great time.  It's been so wonderful to be home with my parents, to have coffee with them in the morning and dinner with them in the evening and, between the two, to call them at any time and to not worry about prohibitively high phone bills.  I've started catching up with old friends but, unlike during my other visits back in the past two years, I haven't had to cram everything in a short timeframe because I'll be here for quite a while, so I feel blissfully stress-free.  And meeting new friends, mostly through the blogger world, has been such a treat; I went to #BloggerBlitzDC on Sunday and made some amazing connections.

In other news, I'm headed to Chicago with my family this weekend, so I'll be MIA from the blogosphere till Sunday night.  My sister is enforcing the "no laptops on vacation" rule, which means that I won't be able to virtually hang out with you.  (However, my new iPhone is surgically attached to my hand, so don't be surprised if I sneak a tweet or two!)  I'll schedule some posts for the next few days if I get my act together before we leave this afternoon, but let me preemptively wish you a lovely summer's weekend - I hope that, no matter where you are, you pretend you're on holiday, too, maybe somewhere like this!!

  1. I think that while you're in the States you should take a weekend trip to Houston :) hehe!! Congrats on the job! That's so exciting. It's funny because my dream is to do something similar (I did two marketing internships at performing arts centers). Have fun in Chicago and I'll look for your tweets ;)
