Hi Guys.

Hi guys,

First of all, I miss blogging. Secondly, I miss dating. (truly, in that order!)

But sometimes work life gets in the way of the fun things and you have to put your hobbies (writing, online shopping, manhunting) to the side and put your all into sheets and sheets of Excel. And other un-fun things.

You do get to steal away those few moments and few free nights away with your friends and even occasionally catch a sunset that reminds you that it’s all kind of worth it. Kind of.

So I leave you with a fantastic Venice sunset that I actually got to witness tonight. I hope you are all out taking every single possible advantage of summer. And my plea for actual dating stories remains unanswered – so please write me!

See you on the flip side,

Happy Things.

I’m not going to lie, the first few weeks of 2013 sucked. I was probably setting myself up for failure as I rode 2012 out on a high wave. January was one of those months where every small thing that could go wrong did. The Cold Sickness Part II made a nasty reappearance and I’m still not recovered, my HMO screwed me over (not a surprise), I screamed at a dishwasher repairman with an Eastern European accent on the phone and he screamed back (he had the accent, not me), I wasted an entire Saturday waiting on my couch for a delivery that showed up completely wrong but then I yelled at Overstock.com and got my way.

Basically, the last 6 weeks have been a nonstop cycle of anger and screaming and coughing. I’ve decided that the only way to break the cycle is to at least smack a fake smile on my face and try to focus on positive things. Because according to my “glass is half-full” friends, if you keep focusing on the negative, you’ll never break out of the cycle. Or some sh*t like that.

So, in tune with some of my favorite bloggers Cupcakes & Cashmere and Serendipity, Life Itself, I give you my “Happy Things.”

2013, you’ve thrown me through the ringer so far, but I’m going to come back on top.
