Winter 2013 has officially moved into Chicago. Monday we had serious snow flurries for the first time. Last year it didn’t really snow until Christmas Day.

I have a feeling this winter (my second winter in Chicago) is going to be a whole different beast than last year.

Day 1 of Winter 2013 I fell. Not a cute slip. A feet in the air, purse flying, on my back fall. BLACK ICE: 1 LIZZIE: 0

But you know what’s crazy? I love it. I’m happy to see you winter!

if you’re lucky enough to enjoy winter in Chicago, you’re lucky enough

FAST

That is the rate at which my life has been moving lately.

This summer has already proved to be a great one. I have moved into a new apartment that I love. I am putting more and more energy into work. And I am making closer and closer friendships.

And it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about any of it. Can you forgive me? Maybe enjoy this quote as a small token of my apologies:

IT NEVER GETS EASIER, YOU JUST GET BETTER.

if you’re lucky enough to have somewhere to return to, you’re lucky enough
