today is the day. one year back.

September 1, 2012 Posted by the writer

I’ve been laying low. All kinds of crazies have occurred over the past four days. Pages have poured. Australians arrived. I signed a lease.

I move TODAY!

I’ve also been spending a lot of time marveling at my husband lately. I couldn’t help but stretch a press-lipped grin when one of my sisters from the southern hemisphere squeezed me and confirmed, “So wait. You’re seriously married?”

Yes, yes I am.

I have been back in the country for one year today. To think that six months after I arrived, the person I’m going to spend the rest of this life with came strolling across midtown and reset life… well…

It’s pretty wonderful, actually.

We’ve been awake since 4am. I drank the most delicious cinnamon coffee. Tim is taking photos of the sunrise. My floor is covered in books, because besides clothes and a computer, there’s nothing else to pack for the move. The apartment I’ve been in came fully furnished, so we’re literally moving into a completely blank canvas.

The first six months I spent back in town I was reeling from a hideous breakup, the second six I started a brand new job and kicked off life with an amazing young man who I adore beyond bewilderment – and we’re moving into our first “official official” place today. Exactly one year after I returned from roughly a decade overseas.

And the puppies are coming…

    Wow… one year already… too fast! How exciting to see your Aussie sisters… wish I were there to share the space… sounds like you are on track with more changes in the wind. Lovely to read that you are happy. Much love. xoxo

    • I wish you were here too Cos! You would appreciate the tiny patch of green sprawling with veggie patches that I’ve somehow hustled in this wonderful town 🙂 You know me, always on the move. Miss you! love & light x
