It’s been a long time…

Life has changed dramatically since my last post. Suffice to say that I’ve learned a lot about myself and am now happier and more comfortable in my own skin than I have ever been before. I see a long journey of self-discovery ahead of me, one that I now approach with a healthier enthusiasm.

Here’s my attempt at a brief synopsis of the most memorable events of the past 20 months of my life…bought a house and started learning about the trials and tribulations of being a homeowner, went to Vegas for a kickass bachelorette and realized afresh how blessed I am to have such amazing friends, got married to the love of my life, went on an unforgettable whirlwind trip to China, ran my first half marathon and finally got myself on the path to healthy living, and am currently living my dream summer vacation of relaxation and fun, while looking forward to the coming fall, which will feature another trip to Vegas and a 10k race in which I hope to PR.

Not bad, huh?

I was recently asked what my dream job would be if money and education was not an issue. At the time I said figure skater touring with Stars on Ice. And while I still think that’d be freakin’ amazing, I have since thought of another job that I think would bring me even more joy and fun and satisfaction: travelling the world while eating and learning to cook foods unique to each place I visit. And photographing it all. I can think of nothing better.

But in the meantime, I will be content with conducting my own wild experiments in my own little kitchen and learning to photograph my results with my own little camera.

And in the few moments left after all the delicious eats, I’ve been having a blast this summer with Len and our friends. Some of my fave pics:

It’s an understatement to say I’ve been having a lot of fun. I hope that this coming new school year will be full of more fun times, more learning and growth, more running, and more blog posts so that subsequent posts won’t be so ridiculously long!
