Happy Birthday to The One and Only!

Happy Birthday to The One and Only!

In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound.” It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone.

—Don Draper “The Wheel”

posts that wouldve been separate posts if i’d had time to breathe in the last few days:

new job continues to be nuts therefore tumblr has become largely reposting instagram. oops. here’s where the pictures i’ve posted in the last 3 weeks were taken: chicago, lexington, lake herrington, columbus and cincinnati. and lots of other random places in kentucky.

new job continues to be 3912934 times more professionally rewarding than my last job but i won’t lie, i miss jeans day fridays, sleeping in, an 8 mile commute and lack of responsibility to the clients.

i still absolutely do not have work/life balance figured out. i also don’t know how to say no. i don’t feel like i have really sat still and slothed in months. i miss writing. i miss reading. i’d rather be busy than bored but… maybe i could at least have a sunday where i don’t commit to four sets of plans?

two weeks until mexico (!!!) then it’s full steam ahead into wedding season with two in august, one in september and one in october. unfortunately, the way the wedding calendar falls will not allow me to make any of the bacholretteing. my heart weeps, my liver & bank account cheer.

daydreaming (/trolling bing.com/travel) about sneaking a labor day trip in. bank account gives me side eye.

And why not do something new every day of your life? Change! Change!

TBT: the singular best day of my athlete life (age 9). I was this 8&Under high point winner and Andover was the BGSC champ. Can you spot my red curl mullet?

All the good work juju you can send,

My client (and I) could use.

Had my first adoption hearing today! It’s nice to use my law degree to do good and not evil every once and a while.
