Oh hai there! Am back!
These past few months have been quite hectic, but I’m happy to say that they’ve been busy in a very good way. So, what on earth have I been up to?
Well, the holidays came and went like a whirlwind. I went to a number of Christmas bashes and then flew south with Gene to hang out in Atlanta for a night. We treated ourselves to the Atlanta Botanical Garden Holiday Lights Show which was AMAZING, and then we had an equally amazing dinner at Local Three Kitchen & Bar. Their chicken pot pie seriously redefines chicken pot pie. WOW.
We then drove down to Alabama to visit with my parents and my sister. I was pleasantly surprised with the special gift of seeing one of my uncles and some of my cousins as well. It was a very fun and laid back holiday. Except for the part where we had to outrun a super cell of extra strong thunderstorms which were producing tornadoes. Yay. But, clearly, everything ended up being alright.
For New Year’s, we enjoyed a kick butt all you can eat dinner at Hill Country BBQ in Chelsea – which also happened to be the spot where we had our second date ever. Then, we braved the Meatpacking District and stumbled upon a fun yet low key party at La Vinatta Project. We put away a few drinks just before midnight, enjoyed a prosecco toast, danced our butts off for about an hour or so, and then sauntered home right around 1:30am. The best part? We spent less than $150 for both of us Now THAT’s a good example of the “low priced high life,” I think!
Oh, also, this happened:
Yep, that’s right. I got ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!! So, a lot of the time that I would have spent blogging has, as of late, been used to plan my wedding which will be held in the fall in the Hudson Valley. I am so FREAKIN’ excited, and I can hardly wait!! YAY!!!!!!!
Other than that, I’ve been hard at work kicking my real estate business into second gear – brainstorming about new marketing and branding ideas, getting out to more social events, figuring out ways to improve my customer service, etc etc. I also have FINALLY established meditation as a regular part of my daily routine – just 3 to 5 minutes a day, followed by an entry into my gratitude journal where I note 3 things I am grateful for that particular morning.
So yeah, stuff’s been happening, and yes, I did miss you guys Looking forward to sharing more happenings, musings, inspiration, ideas, etc with you all in 2013!!!
