The construction of The Golden Gate Bridge, 1935

I haven’t meant to neglect my little outlet here, but life has been a bit of a whirlwind the past two weeks. Looking back at my recent posts, I realize that I had mentioned a few too many times that I had exciting news coming. I have probably succeeded in building things up a bit more than I should have, but regardless, the news is here for you now…

I have decided to take the leap and return to Seattle to partner with my dad on a new restaurant. You all know my love of food, so this next step is something I’ve always dreamt of doing: working in the industry I love and respect so much, being my own boss, stretching myself to take the risks I have been daydreaming of for so long. I’m excited and scared, certain and hesitant all at once. My head is spinning.

While I’m completely ecstatic about this new course and creating a new life in Seattle, I have been feeling homesick for the happy life I had in San Francisco for the past two and a half years. In the span of a few short weeks my life is completely different, and to be honest I am still working to adjust to the changes. I am in mourning for my weekend routine, my best friend, my house, my bed. The funny thing is, I don’t like change…even in small doses, so with everything (and I mean everything) changing at once, I am completely discombobulated. I knew the first bit would be hard; after all, nothing worthwhile is ever easy, but I admit I wasn’t prepared for it all. I just need a bit longer to get settled in, so please bear with me. In the meantime, I hope you’ll continue to follow me and see all that I have in store.
