So It Begins


It is 10:30 am on a Tuesday morning and here I sit in our beautiful new-to-us living room with an exposed brick wall, setting up a blog... Tuesday mornings used to consist of juggling phone calls and emails with vaccinating puppies and kittens and planning shelter events. Quite a bit different from the quiet living room I sit in now.
About two months ago I began a whirlwind journey that led me to this moment. I was lucky enough to marry a wonderful man, go on an amazing honeymoon, and move to Philadelphia, seemingly all at once. The wedding was perfect with both a formal and relaxed atmosphere at the same time. Friends and family gathered from all over to celebrate with great food and libations. We were even fortunate enough to have an absolutely incredible fireworks display thanks to the hard work of some dear friends.
After the wedding we had two weeks to pack up our place and move it all to a Philadelphia storage unit and then we were "whisked" away to New Zealand through two 13 hour flights in a row. Well worth the time in the air as we had just about three weeks to explore the diverse scenery of the two major islands. Should you ever get the opportunity, by all means, go to New Zealand. (The above picture is of an new, unfurling fern. This is called Koru, a common Maori symbol for new beginnings, growth or movement.)
When we got back we had a day to recover and sleep and then the very next day we were in Philadelphia moving from the storage unit to the house and then Thanksgiving happened and BAM! It is Tuesday and I need a job....
