the past weeks have been full: the most wonderful woman’s birthday last friday (yes, she’s really that amazing, and finally the world is recognizing that fact and giving her the good fortune she deserves) followed by a beautiful wedding for our dear friends at the old Johnson (of Johnson and Johnson) estate in princeton.
this august has gifted us with cool temperatures and I’ll admit I’m rather grateful despite the fact that the weather being so screwy can only mean our climate is suffering…I digress, back to summer. summer has been a bit of a let down, am I allowed to say that? I’ve kept myself pretty isolated in attempting to deal with the seemingly constant changes that come our way.
today is the last day at my corporate job. I feel a mix of emotions ranging from relief to excitement to premature nostalgia. it’s so odd, isn’t it? leaving a place you’ve spent more time than anywhere else over the past couple of years (speaking of which, why do we still have a 5 day work week?). people are kind, wishing me the best on new opportunities and our marriage and letting me know that my kindness towards them didn’t go unnoticed…but, it’s time.
a lot of excitement awaits this fall and i’m doing my best to be ready for it, but it’s near impossible to prepare for the unknown. how do I go about embracing the idea of having every option imaginable instead of fearing it? Dive in headfirst, I suppose…so that’s precisely what I’m going to do.
