It's Been a While...and It May Be a While...

Hi there!

I don't know why I never feel like blogging anymore.

Well, I shouldn't say that. I have ideas for posts, like my favorite drugstore makeup finds, life lately photos, surprise stories, my favorite workouts and recipes, travel and sporting event recaps, and of course pictures of Teddy.

And yet I'm so lazy about it.

Who knows, maybe I'll post something substantial this week. I'm not holding my breath, but now that I'm on here typing with a cup of coffee, wearing comfy sweatpants, with my Steelers playing in the background, I am reminded of how much I actually do enjoy writing and reflecting.

See you soon :)

Have a good one!

6 Years Ago...

Hi there!

Six years ago today I was getting ready for class in my DC Cleveland Park apartment. I decided to wear a dress this day and curl my hair. As I unraveled my curls I remember thinking, "why am I trying so hard?" I was taken aback that I was excited for my evening. I didn't think I wanted to date anyone during grad school. And yet, here I was in a new dress, curled hair and butterflies flitting around in my stomach.

Class was a blur as was my library session that afternoon. 6pm was quickly approaching and I was about to meet up with this super cute and sweet guy at the Georgetown Waterfront for drinks.

As I walked up to the restaurant I remember getting a chill and clutching my scarf a little tighter. The nerves were taking over. Does this guy like me? Are we just friends?

Maybe I did want to date, after all.
In fact, I just wanted to date him.

Then I saw him, checking on our reservation and turning around to see me. He smiled.

Soon after, the evening was filled with nervous yet natural conversation, sangria, chips & guac, a game of 20 questions that never ended, a walk to a wine bar and a kiss in the rain before I hopped in a cab.

My life was forever changed.

Have First Date-iversary, Andrew! I'm so happy it was my last first date 6 years ago.

Have a good one!
