The Move...again

In the past year, I have moved 4 times but I can finally say I've found a place I can properly call home. Let me say first off that moving is super exhausting, expensive and time consuming like nobody's business. In the process of packing up things, I felt like I was taking a stroll down memory lane, where inanimate objects had profound triggers in reminding me of what was and what could be.

And as I settle into my own cozy place, I can't help but to have these thoughts of wanting to share this experience with a certain someone. To cook dinner and cuddle up on the couch, to get that puppy which will end up chewing on said couch. To laugh and possibly cry. To share experiences due to proximity rather than through words and stories.

This moment in my life has highlighted what I truly want; someone to spend my life with. But with that said, I've reached a point in my life that I personally need to grow on my own, be content with loneliness, strengthen my own voice and the confidence that comes with it. I have accomplished many things in my life and am grateful for those opportunities but I need to tackle this one aspect in my life that makes me vulnerable. Funny how a move brings these types of emotions to the surface. 

Also on a side note, buying a couch is one of the most difficult and adult things I've had to do.

Reflection & Gratitude

Reflecting back on 2017, I have dealt with my share of disappointments and struggles. Yet grateful for those moments of growth in between. Being given the opportunities to reach certain goals and achieve special milestones was also a highlight of mine. I was fortunate to travel the world, make new friends and be involved in unique projects. I look forward to keeping this momentum going.

Furthermore, since the new year has commenced I thought I would write a letter to 2018. 

Dear 2018, 

Please show me kindness and strength. To be kind to myself and the strength to know when to speak up or move on. To show the citizens of the world that vulnerability is not a weakness and our differences add variety to life. For those that are self-serving to wake up and realize their actions are impactful, no matter how larger or small. And lastly, for our priorities to be with good intention. I love you and whatever you bring our way.

All Of The Carbs

Sometimes you just need some carbs to hit the spot. That's why I had a delicious time eating at Uovo (Italian for egg). Their pasta is simple but rich, making my mouth salivate in delight! Below are some of the dishes that caught my eye and satisfied my stomach.
