Sweet home Chicago. <3
This blog has been absent and not very full of life lately, and that's because I was working on furthering my life along.
Two weeks ago Jacob and I officially moved to Chicago to a one-bedroom in the Lakeview/Wrigleyville area.
It has taken some time to adjust, and I'm sure it will continue to do so for awhile.
To say I love the way it feels here doesn't feel quite enough. I'm not sure how to describe what I'm feeling. I'm happy. I'm thankful. I'm glad we made it. It's been a rough journey to say the least. I'm thankful for the support we've had and for those who recognize that we are do-er's...we will make the life we want happen.
Jacob is working full-time and I couldn't be more proud. His boss recognizes his work ethic and is already training him to be a manager. I am in that god-awful place called "the job hunting zone". It isn't much fun, but I know I will find something. I wish I could have something now and right away, but so far I don't. I have to keep my optimism and faith up to continue to push on. The best of things are easy, and I remember that often, especially now that we've made it here.
Chicago is something beautiful.

Adventures to Clark St.'s John Barleycorn with best friends.
Chicago? I think so.
We have settled in pretty much. As much as you can in two weeks at least. Here's a few shots of our apartment:
I know it's a good place to start and to get grounded here in Chicago. It's truly starting to feel like home.
I cannot wait for adventures to unfold. I'm ready with open arms.
