This summer was an unsettled one. We moved to Ohio, traveled for a slew of weddings, helped family members move, house-hunted and started new jobs. We’ve been living a rather bohemian life in a loft-style apartment, in a neighborhood that is more down-and-out than up-and-coming. Our tiny nerd is stumbling around on two feet sometimes, constantly showing us all the ways that we’ve failed to baby-proof the apartment. There are big changes that have happened (new state! new house soon! new job!) but lots of small things that keep us distracted every day. It’s boring but all-consuming, this business of settling in a new place.
In the midst of all this life, I’m trying to find and maintain a few creative outlets. My college roommate/BFF and I started a new blog called Old Married Ladies. My dad and I are working on a new issue of Positive365. And after years of stewing on a novel idea, I’ve kickstarted my writing and research. (No link for that, though. It’s in very early draft mode, mostly sketches and ideas and verbal doodles.)
So I haven’t been here, but you can find me in lots of other places. I try to update Instagram from time to time (warning: lots of baby pics), and I occasionally pop on Twitter to find interesting links and bon mots. I’m around! Say hi to me any time, and I’ll be back when I have something to say.
