New Beginnings.


Let us take note that although The Dizzle is quite capable of making three grown women laugh heartily for the camera, little River was not amused at all in our little photo sesh. However, it seems quite apparent that Mishi here (shown in photo #4) has no problem at all in making that sweet babe smile. ;) 

I currently only have a bed sitting in the middle of a half-painted room, but that didn't stop us from having a grand ol' time. Jamie and Vicki brought a little San Diego into my life this weekend, and it was just what I needed. Except now that they're gone, I'm feeling even more homesick than I did before. Guess that means I'll just have to schedule a trip to San Diego sometime this summer, now doesn't it?

I wonder how long it takes for a new city to feel like "home"? One month? Six? A year? The Dizzle seems to think that once we get "our routine" started, it'll be easier to adjust. I'm inclined to agree with him.

Speaking of routines...I'm starting a very important one today: My new job!

I'm excited. Very excited. Part of me thought I would have a slight feeling of dread when the time came to jump back in to a full-time job after having the luxury of traveling the world for six months, but dread is definitely not one of my emotions. I guess that's a good sign I held out for the right fit? 
So far, anyway.

I've decided that I am going to actively embrace my new "home." I'm going to give this San Francisco thing a real shot. No half-assing it. I think I had slight hesitations for awhile, especially when we didn't have a place of our own. But now, I'm eager to get to know our new neighborhood. I'm excited to learn the "knowledge of the locals". 

A new home, a new city, a new job, a new man (kiiiiidding! Love you, Boo). I think this is going to be a great year. No, I know it'll be a great year, because I'm determined to make it one. So, boom. There's a little motivation for your Monday. Go out and make it a great one, ya hear? :)

Happy Monday!

xoxo

  7. It is hard to embrace a new place. It takes a while to create a new one that genuinely feels like home. Props to you for consciously making a point to embrace this next chapter of your life! Change, good or bad, is hard.

    Hope you have a great first day at your new job!

  8. Good luck your first day! It took me a while to get adjusted to living here. But I think part of that was because Andrew and I were still long distance between San Diego and SF. But as soon as he moved here in January everything changed and it seemed right at home. So I think having the Dizzle here with you while you both adjust will make feeling at home here effortless. Plus, it's your first place together! Always exciting. Also...routine helps, he's on to something with that one! Have a great first day at work!

  14. From my moving experience it took about a full year to really feel like it was home in my new city. After that I wasn't confused when people mentioned some road or neighborhood. I had "my" grocery store, Starbucks, target etc by that point and could navigate a shortcut during rush hour. I wish you much happiness as you are settling in and starting this next adventure!

  15. Great photos! You're all in top buns, hehe. I like your attitude to start making SF your home. I would say it takes a long time to make a place your home (Philly is always going to be my home no matter how long I live in the DC area) but it doesn't take long for a place to be familiar, your new normal. Good luck!

  17. River was obviously upset because everyone had a bun but him. FOMO!
