I’m not sure if you’re here reading this because you’re a friend or loved one who likes to check up on me, someone that has previously read my Tumblr, or because you went to your favorite search engine and typed the descriptors “newly married thirty-something NYC woman who won’t stop posting wedding pictures on Instagram” (ahem…@eminnycity). Regardless, I’m happy that you’ve found me and I hope you’ll stick around while I try to figure out exactly what it is that I have to offer you. It might be nothing…you’ve been warned.
I’ve missed documenting random highlights and low points of my life since I stopped writing on a regular basis almost two years ago. I *think* I’m ready to start sharing again because not only is it a creative and cathartic outlet, it’s also an opportunity to engage with a community of people who share common interests, experiences, and inspirations. I was floored by the support and kindness that was given to me when I was going through what is sure to be one of the most difficult and defining moments of my life (the passing of my mother). I will forever be grateful.
If you have any interest, feel free to tinker through the completely self-centered and narcissistic boondoggle of a blog that I started via Tumblr in 2009. I’ll admit that I’m a bit embarrassed about some (most) of the content that I shared on that platform but it brought me to this place…and this place is full of love, joy and contentment.
I think it’s time to start documenting this life that I have because it’s a great one – even when it doesn’t feel like it. Keeping a journal has never been my thing but putting life on display for the masses is something that I’ve found to be (mostly) fulfilling and fun. I hope you’ll follow along and chime in when you feel inspired to do so.
Happy New Year and let’s get back to it.
With Love, Em
