I'm back....and better than ever!

Hello, everyone!

It's been WAY too long since I've blogged.  This is because life has taken me on the craziest, wildest ride. 

If you've been following, you know I am in the middle of a divorce from my husband of 20 years.  It has been the most excruciating experience of my life.  I wouldn't wish divorce on my worst enemy.  It's taken much of my emotional and physical energy to just live day-to-day. 

That said, I've been trying to find the silver lining.  I moved in to a very small studio apartment in the Pearl District, an area I'd been begging my ex to live in for years but he'd refused. I created a haven for me and my dogs and I've been making lots of new friends, both of the human and four-legged persuasion. I've been job-hunting, designing, exercising and exploring. In short, I've been trying to find myself and determine what exactly makes me tick.

The last week in May marked one year since he walked out on me and serendipitously, I turned a corner around that time. Maybe it wasn't a coincidence, but even though this divorce seems to be dragging, I've finally been able to pull myself out of the quicksand and immerse myself in design.

For once in my life, I can't wait to see what the future holds.
