It’s absolutely wild that January is already half over. I guess the cliche “when you’re busy, time flies”, is nothing but true. I was inspired to write this post from a direct message on my Instastory asking for a life update. I had to refer to my Google photos drive to recall the first 18 days of 2018. Thanks, Caroline!
January 2018 is…
confidently deciding to move across the country(!) to Florida to be with my crew
managing the multitude of logistics and tasks required for a cross-country move
saying goodbye to my first real job of almost six years
soaking up sweet family time amongst the lush North Coast Redwoods & Pacific Ocean
eating all the toast (gluten included) – almond butter & jam toast, Dad’s sourdough toast, avocado egg toast, French toast
spending five full days with my dear, selfless Mom packing up my little home of the past five years
watching all of my belongings get shipped away on a huge semi truck
sleeping in a sleeping bag on my empty bedroom floor until I fill my place with new tenants
scooping Vital Proteins collagen peptides into my big mug of thick-as-mud black coffee
enjoying the initial bliss of unemployed life
bundling up for chilly beach walks on the Lost Coast
wearing all my warm down outerwear, cozy scarves, and knitted beanies before they hibernate in my closet
enjoying moments of downtime amongst the busy transitions: sipping golden milk, playing Scrabble, calling my girlfriends
My time left in California (for now!) is still to be determined, but I am aiming to be in Florida by the end of the month… taking life one day at time, and enjoying the ride ever so much!
