So this is heartbreak.

I am officially about 765 miles from home.  Home, if you need the reminder, is San Francisco.  Even though I no longer have a physical address in San Francisco, I truly have left my heart there.  The 13+ hours of driving were successful and I arrived in one piece… this, I am grateful for.  Right now, I have to try very hard to remember to count my blessings.  I know there are many things to give thanks for, but I also know that my heart is hurting.


I used to sing along to songs about heartbreak and think I totally understood the pain of love and loss.  I was wrong.  This morning I woke up in a new state, in a bed all alone, with my life in boxes and with a knot of fear in my stomach.

So this is heartbreak…

Saying goodbye to my beautiful little house, my love, and my life in SF.



I knew going through so many changes at once was going to take a toll and I will do everything in my power to get through this time as gracefully as possible.  I am glad those of you that are still reading are still with me, despite my absence and the ups & downs.  From here, there is nowhere to go but up, right?!

2014 will be all about learning to adapt. 


Since I missed out on a Christmas & New Year blog post I will say it now… MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Christmas was wonderful because I was with my family and I finally got to meet my beautiful baby niece.  I also got to hang out with the coolest little man on the planet..aka my nephew.

I spent my last few weeks of 2013 in San Francisco, celebrating like it was 1999.

I welcome 2014 as a year of major change, heartbreak, and potential.



Here I go…

  1. Our San Francisco hearts are with you all the way. Please keep us “posted” on your new life, wherever that may be. I wish we were still sharing salads donated by Timmy at the Slanted Door!
