i'm not gone forever

Hey all,

I have had a couple of inquiries recently to see where I am and whether or not I am coming back.  I'd like to let you know that I'm flattered you all love my blog and have missed reading it.  I've been very busy recently as explained by the month of february, during which I had two days spent in arlington that I was not working a 12 hour shift or traveling.  I went to NYC twice, Newport once, and worked weekends here and there. Luckily I don't have any more travel plans until April.  A little treat for my March birthday I guess you could say.

So I have good and bad news:  the good being that I am coming back to home sweet sassy home.   I've been trying to focus a bit on me recently and although I love blogging, it can be a lot of work.  I generally try to blog a few times a week but not feel pressured with a necessity to blog.  Don't worry about me!  everything is fine, I'm just taking a little break.  Hopefully when I officially return I will have a lot to tell you about my time off.

The bad news is that you'll have to wait a little longer before I come back.  I'm thinking another couple of weeks.

I figure I'll give you a little taste of what has been going on with me for the last few weeks.

homemade anniversary brunch in nyc 
(don't get too excited, made by yours truly)

went to see the Lion King on Broadway to celebrate, 
ironically this was the subway car we took on our way to the show

a CB2 in SOHO boyfriend picked out the greatest coffee table and a bookshelf for more storage in the bathroom. i sat on the couch eating chocolate, giving moral support during the building process and watching the wedding planner

the beginnings of a gallery wall in NYC

new curtains for my closet in arlington.

So that's a little bit of what I've been up to!  I haven't taken very many pictures recently.  I'm not yet comfortable whipping my large Nikon out of my purse at most locations, but once I gain that confidence I will have great pics!  Coming up is my quarter-life-crisis birthday so I'll be celebrating that for a few weeks and hopefully surviving turning 25.
See you all soon!
