My Fall

Posted on

It is hard to believe we are well into fall and I can count down the days to Thanksgiving! My fall has been busy, but full of good things.

Some highlights have been a trip to Poughkeepsie; my first big Silk Road Society event plus a few smaller events that have all gone really well; outings with the girls including dinner at a wine bar and brunch to a shopping event; immersing myself in work including a few behind the scenes tours and amazing meetings; and last but not least, celebrating Anthony’s 30th birthday with an incredible dinner at Le Diplomate and another dinner with 22 of our closest friends at Carmines!

I’m looking forward to the next few weeks! I have some big projects due at work in the next few weeks, plus several events to work on. But I find that it doesn’t always feel like work when I love what I’m doing. I’m looking forward to holidays and to go home in just over 5 weeks.

All is good.

Five Years in DC

Posted on

Today is my five year anniversary of living in DC. Sometimes it feels like I’ve lived here forever, it is hard to imagine a life before. It feels like that girl that lived in San Francisco was someone different, not me. But it was me! I’ve had an amazing five years here. I have met some of my favorite people in the world, watched some of them get married, watched a few move away and start their new journeys. I’ve traveled to many different places, and have eaten really well along the way. I went to, and graduated from graduate school. I lived in London and traveled abroad. I interned at one of my favorite museums in the world, and shockingly achieved my goal of working for the Smithsonian. It took a lot to get where I am today, but I am so happy for the journey I’ve taken. And most importantly, I married my best friend. Five years ago today I was unloading my Penske truck I had just driven across country with my mom, into Anthony’s basement for storage while I lived with my sister and looked for a job. We were at the beginning of our relationship, we had been talking and visiting but this was going to be the first time we lived in the same city. Now we live together with our crazy cat, married, happy and both working on our own dreams but coming together at the end of the day to be a family. DC, you’ve been good to me.

September means new beginnings

Posted on

There has been a lot of change in my life lately. All good change, but still scary. Today is my last day at my job I have been coming to for over three years. Monday I go to the job I have been working towards for almost five years. It is very nerve-wracking, but it is right.

Taking some inspiration from my Tumblr today!
